Both YNW Melly and YNW Bortlen were arrested in February 2019 for murder. Even though it’s been 20 months since the arrest, the court case is still moving at a snail’s pace. On the other hand, YNW Melly’s manager, 100K, said in an Instagram story not too long ago that it’s possible the rapper won’t have a contract in the next two months. The news came out soon after 100K’s new song “Rings” was released to the public. Don’t ask me anymore if I’m a rapper; leave it at that. I’m not a hater, so get some sh*t, 2022 will be awesome, and Melly will be home in two months, so you should get your act together.
Melly’s next trial will occur in March 2022, so we’ve set a date for that month. People say that the rapper shot and killed two members of YNW, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. He has been in jail for close to three years because of this.
What happened before YNW Melly was arrested?
The rapper faced two first-degree murder charges in February 2019.The charges were related to a shooting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in October 2018 that killed two people close to YNW. This happened in October of 2018.
The police say that Melly and another rapper named Cortlen Henry planned to kill Williams and Thomas Jr. so it would look like they were hurt in a drive-by shooting. Melly is said to have been a part of this plot. Reports say that Cortlen took the injured people to the hospital, where they later died. On February 13, 2019, Melly showed up.
He told people on Instagram that he would be working with the police and turning himself in. He said that he had to bury his brothers a few months ago because of the violence, and now the system wants justice. He said that even though there are a lot of lies and false accusations about him, he is not worried because God is with him and his brother.
After paying a $90,000 bail and getting out of jail in May 2021, Henry was immediately put under home arrest. He wasn’t allowed to get in touch with Melly, Melly’s girlfriend, Melly’s manager, Melly’s mother, or DrewFilmedIt, the main video director for the YNW crew. YNW Melly has been in trouble with the law before. After shooting at three people near Vero Beach High School in October 2015, YNW Melly was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a weapon and one count of discharging a firearm in public. Both of these crimes were put on YNW Melly’s record.
Jamell was given a one-year jail sentence
After that, he was put on probation. On the other hand, he was taken into custody again in 2017 for breaking the rules of his probation. He stayed in jail until March 2018, when he was finally freed. Even though the musician was in jail, he could still talk to his fans through his manager. He also made a new record to show how much he cares for his fans while they anxiously wait for his release.
