Lil Pump Thinks YNW Melly Is Innocent
On Saturday (July 20), Pump sounded off on his Instagram Story about the "Murder on My Mind" rapper's case. "Hey, free my boy Melly. He's innocent," Jet Ski said.
Pump's statements come on the heels of Melly proclaiming his own innocence on social media. On Thursday (July 11), he appeared in court to address an update in lawyers for his upcoming trial. Later, footage of his court appearence was posted on his Instagram page along with the caption, "I’ll be home soon. I’m smiling because God is with me - Melly 🌎🙏🏾✨ #innocent #icee."
Melly is accused of murdering former associates YNW Juvy (Chris Thomas) and YNW Sakchaser (Anthony Williams) in October 2018 and trying to hide the crime along with YNW Bortlen by reporting it as a drive-by. Melly was quick to proclaim his innocence before his arrest in February 2019.
"[Unfortunately] a lot of rumors and lies are being said but no worries god is with me and my brother @ynw.bortlen and we want y’all to remember it’s a ynw Family I love you @ynwsakchaser1 and @ynwjuvy #freeus," he posted on Instagram before turning himself in.
If found guilty, he could face the death penalty.
