Lil Baby Shouts Out YNW Melly on New Song: Listen
While YNW Melly sits behind bars awaiting his trial, Lil Baby seems to express his support for the imprisoned rapper.
A snippet of Baby's unreleased song appeared in a video uploaded to Instagram on Monday (May 7). In the video, the Quality Control rapper spits a verse from the untitled song, which features a bar that references Melly and his morbid single "Murder On My Mind."
"Got murder on my mind like my lil nigga Melly," Baby raps.
Lil Baby is the latest rapper to offer support for YNW Melly, who's currently sitting behind bars facing double murder charges. Future is another prominent act who wants Melly to be set free. Last week (May 1), Future Hendrix hit up his Instagram Story to wish Melly a happy birthday and to advocate for his freedom.
"Free my lil brother Melly," Future wrote in his story.
Along with Future, other artists like Lil Durk and Kodak Black have also voiced their support for the Florida rapper.
YNW Melly was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for allegedly shooting and killing his associates, YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser, and making their deaths appear as if they were victims of a drive-by shooting. Last month, Melly was informed that the state of Florida will be seeking the death penalty against him.
Lil Baby has yet to confirm the song title or when we'll be able to hear the full CDQ version. For now, listen to a snippet from the song referencing Melly below.
