Last night, popular Florida rapper YNW Melly was arrested for the double murder of two of his friends, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy, who died of gunshot wounds last October. Police have claimed that YNW Melly, and another one of his associates, YNW Bortlen, staged the crime scene to look like a drive-by shooting, prior to Bortlen driving the two victims to the hospital where they succumbed to their wounds.
Prior to the shooting, however, one of Melly's biggest records was "Murder on my Mind," which was officially released in March of 2017, over a year before the double murder. Melly then released the official video to the track in August of 2018, two months prior to the night in question. All the same, these facts haven't stopped fans from combing through his lyrics to see if Melly might have referenced the murders in his music, while this particular song has lyrics that could be confused for a confession given the latest developments.
In the record, Melly raps: "Yellow tape around his body, it's a f****** homicide/his face is on a T-shirt and his family traumatized/I didn't even mean to shoot him, he just caught me by surprise/I reloaded my pistol, cocked it back, and shot him twice/his body dropped down to the floor and he got teardrops in his eyes/he grabbed me by my hands and said he was afraid to die/I told him it's too late, my friend, it's time to say goodbye/and he died inside my arms, blood all on my shirt."
As already noted, the song was released well before the murders of YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy, though that hasn't stopped people from speculating, as streams for the record reportedly clocked in over 5,104 views in under 30 minutes upon the news of his arrest. Currently, the music video for "Murder on my Mind" has over 88 million views.
