Kodak Black has been in jail for nearly a year for gun charges and, unfortunately, the experience has been worse than expected.
According to the rapper’s representatives, Kodak was attacked by several prison guards at the Big Sandy Penitentiary in Kentucky.
The reps were told this information by other inmates because Kodak currently does not have any phone or visitation privileges due to a previous altercation with guards at another facility.
Kodak’s reps described the incident via his official social media accounts:
“Friday night he was badly beaten while in cuffs, by 7 guards at Big Sandy KY. They struck him in the head repeatedly with a metal object, Then after one of the guards flicked his genitals and said ‘you’re not so gangster now, you’re gonna need bigger balls to survive.'”

We just heard from fellow inmates at Max. Penitentiary Big Sandy KY. In regards to @kodakblack treatment. He couldn't call himself as he is not allowed phone or visitation for 6 months as punishment for the incident in Miami, even though that has been the case since September, they refuse to give him credit for that time. Friday night he was badly beaten while in cuffs, by 7 guards at Big Sandy KY. They struck him in the head repeatedly with a metal object, Then after one of the guards flicked his genitals and said "you're not so gangster now, you're gonna need bigger balls to survive". We have notified his counsel @lawronin and he advised he will be asking for a full investigation by @thejusticedept and the FBI
Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s lawyer, also issued a statement, adding that he has requested help from the Justice Department to launch an investigation into the matter.
“This is true injustice,” Cohen wrote. “I have requested that Big Sandy preserve all video and conduct a full investigation. I have also reached out to DOJ, as I feel that a 3rd party investigation needs to take place immediately.”

Reposting from @kodakblack . I have requested that Big Sandy preserve all video and conduct a full investigation. I have also reached out to DOJ, as I feel that a 3rd party investigation needs to take place immediately. There are recordings of the witnesses that called and stated what happened to Bill. A 22 year old man serving approx 2 years more for a non violent crim is in a max pen. 1100 miles from his family and lawyers. This is true injustice. Not to mention when he was under the influence of an unknown substance during the incident in Miami 2 weeks before his sentencing on the paperwork case.
Last year, Kodak was sentenced to for 46 months in prison for falsifying information on a gun application. He has repeatedly claimed that he was being mistreated and abused in prison.
While incarcerated in a Miami jail, he got into a fight with a guard which resulted in his phone and visitation privileges suspended for six months (which has technically passed).
Kodak and his team believe the rapper was set up and drugged prior to the Miami incident.
