Pompano Beach, Florida rapper continues to serve out his 46-month prison sentence. Back in November 2019, Kodak took a plea deal to the gun charges against him, but according to updates to the rapper’s social media account, his time in prison has been a harrowing one. He was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with a prison guard, and last week a lengthy message was shared his Instagram page 

On Wednesday (January 22), a report by Miami’s 7News states that Kodak’s mother, Marcelene Simmons, has hired attorney Benjamin Crump who has also worked as Trayvon Martin’s family lawyer. According to the outlet, Simmons and Crump accuse the prison violating Kodak’s civil rights as  behind bars. 

“We know something happened in that prison,” Crump said. “.” While weeping, Marcelene said, “If my son dies, I’m gonna kill myself, too. Please, please, I need help.” She added, “I want to make sure my son is OK,” said Simmons. “.. My son is everything to] me.”
