Kodak Black's legal team claim he was struck in the head with a metal object.
Kodak Black has been sitting behind bars for roughly a year at this point following an arrest on the night of his performance at Rolling Loud Miami. The rapper was later convicted of falsifying information on a gun application and sentenced to 46 months in prison. Since his imprisonment, the rapper has relayed messages through his rep including a few that detailed the abuse that he's endured while behind bars.

Earlier today, a rep for Kodak Black shared a bleak update on the rapper. His reps explained that they got word from fellow inmates at the Kentucky prison since Kodak Black has been on punishment with his phone and visitation privileges revoked. Kodak has previously detailed the alleged mistreatment he's endured since his incarceration but in the latest update, it appears that the abuse has just gotten worse.
"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"," the message reads.
In 2019, the rapper was allegedly involved in an altercation with a prison guard which is why his phone and visitation privileges have been revoked. With the prison authorities believing the rapper was under the influence, Kodak's team has suggested that he was set up and drugged which is what led to the fight in the first place.
