Future Wishes YNW Melly a Happy Birthday and Calls for Release

A Gundam holding a gun, damn!

Future took to Instagram live video to wish YNW Melly a happy birthday. The We All Shine rapper, who just turned 20, was born Jamell Maurice Demons on May 1, 1999.


Melly is currently behind bars on two counts of first-degree homicide. TMZ previously reported that the State of Florida is seeking the death penalty in the case. Melly is suspected of being accountable for the 2018 murders of Christopher “YNW Juvy” Thomas Jr. and Anthony “YNW Sakchaser” Williams. Police stated that Melly shot the two men and then staged the scene to make it appear like a drive-by. Right after the news was announced, Melly’s mother (Jamie Demons-King) took to IG to share a video of herself listening to her son’s music.

In the video, Future called for the release of Melly. “Aye, free my little brother, ” Future said.
