Kodak Black previously filed a lawsuit against the Big Sandy prison in Kentucky, claiming that he was being tortured by the guards in the facility. Kodak alleged the guards beat him up upon his arrival and even held him down and flicked his testicles. Now, the rapper has revealed that he has been moved to a new facility following the lawsuit.
Kodak Black took to Instagram and shared the new address of where he will be placed at, saying “Strike at Me” on the caption of the post. It was noted the rapper was moved to Oklahoma City before being transferred to Illinois days later. Kodak Black’s lawyer gave an update on the move, saying guards at the new facility have been more “professional.”

Previously, Kodak Black revealed that he was being denied access to a rabbi, but now the rapper has reportedly gone all-out and sued the Federal Bureau of Prisons, along with the director and the warden of Big Sandy, where he is currently doing time. In the lawsuit, Kodak claims his rights were violated, and he’s been tortured since he got to the facility a year ago.
The rapper mentioned an incident in the lawsuit where guards at Big Sandy allegedly beat him up when he got there, held him down, and were “flicking his testicles” while the beat down happened.
Kodak also noted guards at the facility punish him for no legal law enforcement-related reason. One of the ways Kodak says the guards punished and humiliated him was by making him wear a backless paper gown for six hours with no access to a bathroom, which allegedly caused him to pee and defecate on himself. Kodak noted this happened while the guards laughed at him. Kodak’s lawsuit aims to have his legal fees covered, and he is ultimately looking to be placed in a lower-security prison.
