YNW Melly recently told one Hip-Hop blogger that he will be home from jail this year. According to DJ Akademiks who says he spoke to the currently incarcerated rapper, Melly said “I’m coming home 2020.”
The “Murder on My Mind” rapper is currently locked up on double homicide charges in Florida. According to police, Melly allegedly shot and killed two of his former friends while his affiliate YNW Bortlen attempted to stage the shooting as a drive-by.
Melly was arrested in February 2019, and plead not guilty in March 2019. Investigators claim they have more than enough evidence that places the rapper at the scene of the murder. Soon after Melly’s not guilty plea, the prosecution moved to seek the death penalty.
Melly’s career was on the rise before he was incarcerated, but it seems to have taken new leaps and bounds after he was the subject of the murder investigation. The “Murder on My Mind” single reached RIAA Gold status while Melly was behind bars.
YNW Bortlen who allegedly staged the murder was released on bond and house arrest on May 23. Melly was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 while in jail but was denied release.
