Kodak Black has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons as he claims he’s being tortured while he serves time behind bars.

According to XXL, the suit names Bureau of Prisons Director Michael Carvajal as well as the warden and guards at the United States Penitentiary Big Sandy in Kentucky, before detailing some of the torturous acts Kodak has been forced to endure.

Kodak alleges he was assaulted by Big Sandy guards shortly after he was transferred from a federal house prison in Miami. He said that the “gang beatdown” was retaliation for a security guard that was reportedly injured while attempting to break up a fight between him and another inmate in Miami.

On another occasion, the “Zeze” rapper claims he was restrained for over six hours and “forced to urinate and defecate on himself” as surrounding inmates poked fun at him. As a result of the treatment, the rapper says he threw up, bled from his mouth and allegedly suffered lacerations.

Kodak also recounts an instance where he was told to kneel execution style “in just his underwear while soaking wet,” and alleges he has been restricted from going to the Rabbi despite being a practicing member of the Hebrew Israelites.

The rapper claims he suffered physical injuries, embarrassment, humiliation and emotional distress and is seeking compensation that will help cover his lawyer fees. He is also asking to be relocated to a safer and lower level facility since his drug history was “overstated,” and multiple weapons charges were dismissed against him.

“When there is no 3rd party supervision they can do anything and not suffer consequences,” Kodak’s attorney Bradford Cohen said of his client’s lawsuit. “When is the last time in a prison a video tape was inconclusive? They discount witness testimony from fellow inmates as ‘unreliable‘ no matter what the situation…They will just automatically take the word of the guard.”

“It’s time to start holding these agencies accountable,” he continued. “Just like the picture of Bill that was sent to the press almost immediately…When is the last time you saw some federal white collar criminal get a picture taken in custody and disseminated to the press?”
