Kodak Black, the rapper who was incarcerated after he tried to take guns across the United States-Canada border, was attacked last week while in prison, and now, his lawyer is reaching out for help. Hot New Hip Hop reported today that the rapper’s attorney called on the likes of Kim Kardashian and Meek Mill for help.
As you may know, both Kim Kardashian and Meek Mill are active in the act of prison reform. Kim Kardashian, on the one hand, has worked with Donald Trump and Brittany K. Barnett to help first-time offenders get out of prison, whereas Meek was in prison himself for unjust reasons and has been fighting for justice ever since.
In recent years, both parties have been working toward prison reform in a number of ways. Often times, they call on political officials and figures to enact changes for those who have been treated unfairly by the system and some who may have been wrongfully convicted altogether.
Earlier this week, Kodak Black’s lawyer asked for the help of Meek Mill and Kim Kardashian considering Black’s situation seems to be getting worse behind bars. Reportedly, Kodak Black was attacked by seven guards in a Kentucky prison.
According to reports, Kodak Black was handcuffed and smashed over the head with a pole. Other reports claimed that guards flicked his testicles and told him he would need “bigger balls” to make it in the prison. Bradford Cohen, his lawyer, updated Kodak’s fans on his situation.

#Repost @lawronin ・・・ So I will give a brief update. BOP bureau of prisons has not responded to my request for an investigation. I was able to speak directly to Bill today and he confirmed the story. Since the incident he is sensitive to light and has dizzy spells. I have all the officers names involved and have put them on notice. BOP needs to be overhauled @realdonaldtrump needs to put people in place that can overhaul the system or privatize the system so it is run effectively and with transparency. At every corner with requests for documents they try to stall or come up with excuses. This week some documents will be filed to shed light on some issues and hopefully start to rectify this injustice of a 22 year old man accused of lying on a form being sent to a Max prison 1100 miles from his family. This type of thing happens quite often but most are scared to speak about it. @kodakblack is not, if there is retribution for him disclosing the filthy side of the justice system he is willing to take it head on. Funny how when people say they want #JusticeReform its only for CERTAIN PEOPLE #JusticeForSome #FreeKodak #PrisonReform #WhereAreTheyNow? @kimkardashian @meekmill @reform
As it was previously reported, Kodak Black pled guilty to gun charges after he tried to cross the border with weapons last April. Kodak, born Bill Kapri, was apprehended by the police when he drove across the United States-Canada border alongside three of his pals.
In addition to discovering marijuana, border patrol also found the aforementioned weapons for which he was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second-degree.
In November of 2019, Kodak Black was given a 46-month prison sentence in a federal penitentiary for buying a gun in Florida.
