Melly has pleaded not guilty, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Earlier this year, Melly released We All Shine.

 

Rapper YNW Melly is still very much alive in Broward County, Florida, despite a false rumor that the 20-year-old had been stabbed to death in prison. The hoax was circulated on a website that markets itself as a platform for people to commit pranks. But the article was shared widely on social media and appeared toward the top of Google search results, adding fuel to the speculation fire.

 

YNW Melly’s latest video from behind bars, “Suicidal,” pulls influences from a few popular anime—notably Samurai Champloo and Fooly Cooly. Genius spoke with the producer, Z3n to learn more about how the song and video came together. Watch the video…

 

 

NSFNews.com bills itself as a “prank website.” The outlet offers the opportunity for people to write fictional stories to “prank your family and friends” in good fun. Obviously, some people’s idea of a “prank” involves starting a death rumor about someone, because someone (it’s not clear who) wrote a story claiming that YNW Melly was stabbed in jail after encountering gang members, and that he was in “critical condition.”

Melly vs. Melvin has a difficult public-relations needle to thread, presenting a portrait of a teenager who definitely didn’t do what the prosecutors have accused him of but also, you know, totally could have. “I’m a slimeball and I’ll admit it,” he raps on the opener “Two Face,” pinning his transgressions on an alternate personality. The record’s cover quite literally depicts those two faces, one sweetly boyish and looking no older than his 20 years, the other considerably more hardened. It’s a powerful concept, evoking the dueling images that the media often uses to depict young black men and suggesting how easily their portrayals can be spun.

On the heels of Juice Wrld’s death, reports that YNW Melly was stabbed in jail began circulating but this latest story is not true and is just a hoax.

 

 

The young rapper is still awaiting trial for the two counts of first-degree murder charges stacked against him. He is facing a possible death penalty or life in prison for shooting death of friends Anthony Williams (aka YNW Sakchaser) and Christopher Thomas Jr. (aka YNW Juvy).

 

2018 official documentary asserts that Melly and Bortlen were would-be victims in the shooting, rather than its perpetrators. Melly has pleaded not guilty, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Earlier this year, Melly released We All Shine. Vulture critic Paul Thompson wrote that Melly “is better than he needs to be” and has an “otherworldly gift for pop.”

Suicidal – YNW Melly

 

[Intro]
Suicidal
Your love is suicidal
Lately I’ve been feeling suicidal
Your love is suicidal

[Pre-Chorus]
I thought that we were meant to be
You took my heart and made it bleed
I gave you all my ecstasy
I know you’ll be the death of me
Left lipstick on my Hennessy
Felt like you took my soul from me
You gave me all your ecstasy
I thought that we were meant to be

[Chorus]
Your love is suicidal
For me, your love is suicidal
To me, your love is suicidal
To me, your love is suicidal

[Refrain]
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh

[Verse]
I don’t want to lose my conscience
Drinkin’ all this Hennessy
Baby, you took control of me
And I got too many enemies
I knew you wanted to fuck him ’cause I could just tell
Check my back, now I’m, now I’m in my bag, yeah
You did me bad, you did me bad
But I said, “Fuck it,” and I ran up my bag, yeah
I’m in my bag, I’m in my bag now
But you didn’t even put it all on the line
For me, no, oh, I’m sorry
This is the end of us
It’s crazy ’cause my heart is dangerous
Felt like you took my soul from me
Like the devil got a hold on me
Everybody wishin’ bad on me
Everybody wishin’ bad on me
You taught a lesson to me that I had to learn
And I’m so sorry ’cause you let our bridges burn
I said I loved you and I wish I never did
I swear to God, I swear to God, you stupid bitch

[Pre-Chorus]
I thought that we were meant to be
You took my heart and made it bleed
I gave you all my ecstasy
I know you’ll be the death of me
Left lipstick on my Hennessy
Felt like you took my soul from me
No way, I gave you all my ecstasy
I thought that you were meant for me
I know you’ll be the death of me
Thought we were for eternity
You fucked me up, both physically
And mentally, I can’t believe

[Refrain]
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh
I’m sippin’ Hennessy-‘y-‘y, ooh

[Chorus]
Your love is suicidal
For me, your love is suicidal
To me, your love is suicidal
To me, your love is suicidal

[Outro]
You taught a lesson to me that I had to learn
And I’m so sorry ’cause you let our bridges burn
I said I loved you and I wish I never did
I swear to God, I swear to God, you stupid bitch
