Video released by Mexican officials show Joaquin Guzman as he is processed after his January arrest

Mexican drug lord "El Chapo" is complaining that life behind bars is too rough.

That's according to his attorney, who spoke on the radio Tuesday.

He said El Chapo told him guards wake him up every two hours, which he said feels like torture.

Chapo said he's getting so little sleep that he "feels like a zombie."

The druglord, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, escaped from prison last year.

But he was re-arrested last month and is now under close watch.

Mexican officials said they'll eventually extradite Guzman to the U.S.
