#Future says “#FreeMelly” on the jailed rapper’s birthday

Melly is currently behind bars on two counts of first-degree murder. TMZ previously reported that the State of Florida is seeking the death penalty in the case. Melly is suspected of being responsible for the 2018 murders of Christopher "YNW Juvy" Thomas Jr. and Anthony "YNW Sakchaser" Williams. Police allege Melly shot the two men and then staged the scene to make it appear like a drive-by. Shortly after the news was announced, Melly's mom, Jamie Demons-King, took to IG to share a clip of herself listening to her son's music.  

Earlier this week, a remix to Melly's hit song "Murder On My Mind," titled "Melly On My Mind," surfaced online. The track was recorded by a man who says he's the rapper's father.
