YNW Melly’s mother shares the rapper’s heartfelt letter from prison

YNW Melly‘s mother has let the rapper’s fans in on a heartfelt Christmas moment with her incarcerated son in a recent Instagram post.

Jamie King took to his page on Tuesday (January 17) to share a handwritten letter from Melly, who was overjoyed at a surprise appearance from his family outside prison.

“Hey mom, damn you made my night my whole month,” Melly wrote with hearts. “So glad I saw you all. I hope you’ll see me. I know you did it right when you screamed ‘I SEE HIM’ they made you go.” [annoyed face] I’m so glad I saw you mom! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Tell Grandma & Silas that I love them and appreciate them so much. It was good to see them too.

“Dang B Slime still looked high down there lol,” he continued. “You looked so small, I jumped up and down when you saw me. I saw your smile from up here! Look at the whole prison! Even though they tried to make it the worst, you still found a way to make it the BEST. I love you, I’ll give you the world, Pluto and Mars when I get out. What do you want the most, too? Lol.”

The post also included a photo of Melly’s family outside holding signs wishing him a Merry Christmas.

“I will always be here to make your darkest nights bright, even if I have to bring the light to your son,” his mother captioned the post. “I love you @ynwmelly so much my 1st born.”

This is not the first time his family has “visited” Melly in this way. In 2020, his mother and girlfriend threw a party for him outside the prison in Fort Lauderdale, Florida – complete with strippers, luxury cars, dollar bills and lots of twerking.

Melly has been behind bars since February 2019, when he was arrested in Miramar, Florida for the October 2018 double murder of fellow artists YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. Another man, 20-year-old Cortlen Henry, was also taken into custody and charged with murder in the case.

Last month, Melly spoke out about the harsh conditions he has reportedly faced during his nearly three years there, claiming he has been threatened and abused by prison staff.

“As of this moment today, I am officially in fear for my life,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “A new captain named Hubert and XO Jenkins have taken over the prison for two weeks now and have handed out even harsher punishments to me than the previous ones. Since December 1st I have been moved and housed in a unit that holds 24 inmates at once .

“I am the only inmate housed in the vacant unit, with no telephone privilege, no television and no access to a newspaper,” Melly added. “They watch my every move on camera and make sure I don’t use the phone to tell the world how I’m mistreated, discriminated against, physically threatened, harassed. When I get out of my cell for 1 hour a day, every other inmate has to in the adjacent dormitories back to their cells I am subjected to cruel and unusual treatment by the deputies and senior staff of the Broward Sheriffs Office.

He continued, “I’ve been threatened by deputies, lieutenants and sergeants saying ‘they’re going to hide me from the world’ and threatening to ‘beat my ass every day and if I tell my lawyers they’re going to lie and say, that I kill them first’. Words from Sergeant Anthony Kidd and Lt. Jean Baptiste I have literally been hidden from the world so I have no choice but to believe that the next step is to half kill them, like they do to other inmates almost daily here at the main Broward County facility.”

In a follow-up post, YNW Melly expanded that his phone privileges had been revoked, explaining that he is not even allowed to contact family members during the holiday.

“I can’t call my family or lawyers to notify them if I’ve been beaten or harassed,” he wrote under the second post. “They say my phone privileges have been taken permanently due to all the violations over the past seven months. THAT’S A LIE! They took my phone privileges indefinitely out of my 1″ violation to use another inserted pin to talk on the phone when I’m not allowed to use the phone.”

That was decided by a Florida appeals court in November YNW Melly could still face the death penalty in the double homicide case, if he is convicted after the idea had previously been taken off the table. He has maintained his innocence to the charges and remains without an official trial date after it was again delayed in July.
