Days following Kodak Black's lengthy Instagram post, which accused the correctional facility staff of trying to "strategically" kill him slowly, his mother, Marcelene Simmons, has hired Civil Rights attorney, Benjamin Crump.
Kodak is currently serving nearly four years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges. Via Instagram, he claimed that he was being beaten, starved, denied medical care by correctional officers.
We know something happened in that prison," said Crump.
Simmons and Crump said they scheduled a meeting with Kapri to conduct a welfare check, Wednesday morning.
"Literally, only hours before we meet with him, they put him on a bus to Kentucky," said attorney Devon M. Jacob, per WVSN.
"We believe they intentionally moved him, so he couldn't meet with his attorneys," Crump added, explaining that Kodak was on a bus to another prison in Kentucky.
"She wants to make sure that while he's in their custody, that he doesn't end up dead," said Crump, "so she is very concerned as well as all of her family that these allegations are to be taken seriously."
"I want to make sure my son is OK," said Simmons. "I want to make sure they don't kill my son. If they kill my son, if my son dies, I'm going to kill myself too. My son, after God, my son is life to me. My son is everything for me."
