Though YNW Melly remains in Broward County Jail, awaiting his trial for the 2018 double murders of YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser, his mother and girlfriend have surprised him with a gift to keep his spirits up.

On Wednesday (Nov. 4), videos from a party that took place outside of the Florida-based rapper’s jailhouse were shared to Instagram by an exotic dancer who attended the make-shift function.” Going viral right now…. happy birthday @ynwmelly somebody leaked the footage so fuck it it’s out now!!!,” she wrote, before announcing more details about the party. “We threw him a party outside the jail #freeynwmelly #worldstarhiphop !! @kittyondemand @worldstar @worldstarhiphip @theshaderoom @theshaderoomteens.”

In the brief clip, YNW Melly’s mother is seen among women dressed in revealing one-piece outfits throwing money on the women while loud music and men, who are assumed to be connected to the “Murder on My Mind” rapper, dance.

While the young entertainer has claimed the fête to be a birthday party for the incarcerated rhymer, Melly’s birthday is in May. However, since the footage was apparently leaked according to comments on Instagram, it is possible that the party did take place during the spring.

In another post connected to the event, the same dancer confirmed Melly’s mother and girlfriend set up the party. The celebration allegedly took place on top of a building directly across from the jail Melly’s currently being detained in.

The rapper, born Jamell Demons, has a court appearance scheduled for a hearing on Jan. 28, 2021 at the Broward County Central Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. So it’s also possible the party is meant to keep his spirits high while he awaits his forthcoming trial taking place in the new year. Most recently, a new development in the case revealed that the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office in Vero Beach, Fla. has arrested Traveion Banks, 18, for an attempted murder warrant. He is being charged with attempted murder with a firearm causing great bodily harm in the shooting of 43-year-old Shelvick Henry. Henry is related to YNW Bortlen, Melly’s co-defendant in the 2018 murder case of YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser. Authorities received several anonymous tips stating that the shooting was in retaliation for Bortlen’s alleged involvement in the killings. Melly maintains his innocence in the murders of his former friends Sakchaser and Juvy, and has previously pleaded not guilty.
