In an Instagram post shared on Saturday, Kodak Black claims his prison sentence at Miami's Federal Detention Center has been fraught with abuse, including being "laced with an unknown substance" and getting into an altercation with another inmate and at least one correctional officer.

The rapper, who is currently serving 46 months in prison, says the incident took place back in late October. "That substance gave me an out of body experience and had me feeling like I was possessed and dying slowly," Kodak said in the post's caption. "Upon this experience, I managed to go to the CO’s office to seek medical Attention (As shown on surveillance cameras). I was denied!" According to Kodak, this left him in a "state of paranoia."

He went on to detail a later altercation with an inmate, after which he claims the same correctional officer who denied him access to medical attention pepper-sprayed and assaulted him, reportedly calling on additional people in the process. "This near-death experience felt like dogs were tearing at my skin while they were grabbing and beating me while I was under the influence of this unknown substance that mysteriously hasn’t popped up in my Urine analysis and mysteriously the inmate I was fighting with went home the next day," he said of the beating, which he claims left him in a wheelchair. "Prior to this, there were a few inmates who intentionally beat up." The rapper went on to state he has been without commissary and proper hygiene.

He went on to describe a prison fight back in October and implied he was possibly being extorted for $250,000. "I get into a fight with another inmate and this officer jumps in to inflict harm on himself and capitalize on my status as a local celebrity," he said. "I have also heard officers tell me that the CO has been back to FDC and bragging that he will her [sic] a quarter million from me."

On October 29th I was laced with an unknown substance here in Miami, FDC. That substance gave me an out of body experience and had me feeling like I was possessed and dying slowly. Upon this experience i managed to go to the CO’s office to seek medical Attention (As shown on surveillance cameras). I was denied ! This left me in a state of paranoia. Shortly after I got into an altercation with an innate. This same CO who denied me medical attention, proceeded to pepper spray me which instantly impaired my vision and I was oblivious to who was punching and grabbing me repeatedly in the face. Even after I was on the floor they continued to strike me and deploy more people. I was summoning for them to stop while gasping for my breath. This near death experience felt like dogs were tearing at my skin while they were grabbing and beating me while I was under the influence of this unknown substance that mysteriously hasn’t popped up in my Urine analysis and mysteriously the inmate I was fighting with went home the next day. I was beaten so brutally that I had to be taken to the Box in a wheelchair. I have been here for 45 days without commissary, hygiene stressed out and on psych meds. Having to mourn the loss of my brother Juice World behind the doors. Prior to this there were a few inmates who intentionally beat up ... An officer and no charges were filed. Meanwhile I get into a fight with another inmate and this officer jumps in to inflict harm on himself and capitalize on my status as a local celebrity ... I had officers tell me that the CO was ok that night and that he is trying to go this route. Because he self checked himself in the hospital. I have also heard officers tell me that the CO has been back to FDC and bragging that he will get a quarter million from me. I want to shed this light on police brutality and the tactics they use to cover their behinds. #JUSTICEFORKODAK
