Legal troubles aren’t getting in the way of Kodak Black or Tory Lanez keeping their careers going. The two embattled MC’s are in various stages with open cases against them, but that hasn’t stopped a piece of their new song from being previewed on social media.
Kodak Black + Tory Lanez Collaboration
Currently in prison for weapons possession, Kodak has a new album Bill Is Real dropping on Nov. 11. Tory is facing felony charges stemming from the Megan Thee Stallion shooting, and recently released his album Daystar. The new song, which is assumed to be from Kodak’s upcoming album featuring Lanez, was previewed on Instagram and liked by Tory.
Kodak Black Gets New Prison
According to Black’s attorney Bradford Cohen, the Sunshine State native was recently moved to a federal prison in Illinois after he sued for mistreatment in Kentucky. It’s a high-security location and guards are reportedly treating Black better.
Kodak’s change of scenery comes after we first reported on his lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture … he claimed his life was a living hell at Big Sandy maximum security prison. The BOP tells us Kodak was transferred from Big Sandy to FTC Oklahoma City on Oct. 5 — just 2 weeks after Kodak filed his lawsuit — and a few days later, Kodak was transferred to Thomson. BTW … the BOP tells us FTC Oklahoma City acts as a transfer center, which is why the feds moved Kodak again shortly after his arrival. Kodak’s attorney says he spoke with KB on the phone Wednesday, and KB told him he was glad to be out of Big Sandy. One reason — Cohen says Kodak told him the guards at Thomson are more professional.

Kodak Black’s Getting Attacked In Prison
According to recent reports, Kodak took legal action against the Federal Bureau of prisons along with the warden of Big Sandy maximum prison in Kentucky for having his rights violated since arriving there in October 2019. His transfer from a Miami facility has resulted in extreme abuse.
Kodak claims Big Sandy guards put a “gang beating” on him shortly after he arrived, allegedly as retaliation for the injured Miami prison guard. He claims the guards “flicked” his testicles during the beatdown. Since then, the rapper claims he’s routinely punished and mistreated for no legitimate law enforcement reason, including being placed by guards in a backless paper gown on a 4-point restraint for more than 6 hours … with no access to a bathroom. According to the docs … this has forced Kodak to urinate and defecate on himself while the guards make jokes. He claims medical records show that this treatment also resulted in his mouth bleeding, lacerations and vomiting. (TMZ)
To make matters worse, the same reports claimed Black wasn’t able to properly connect with his religion.
Finally, Kodak’s legal team of attorneys Bradford Cohen, Robert Buschel and Jonathan Schwartz are following up on their threat to sue because the rapper is also allegedly being denied access to a rabbi. According to the lawsuit, Kodak is a practicing Hebrew Israelite, but his requests to meet with a rabbi in order to faithfully practice his religion have fallen on deaf ears … while he claims other inmates are granted access to clergy.
