YNW Melly Receives Punishments For Jail Video - But Has No Regrets

YNW Melly released his new album Just a Moment of Slime from

behind bars on Friday (August 13), but his limited promo options

didn’t come without punishments.

The Florida rapper took to Instagram on Tuesday (August 17) to

reveal a prison officer at Broward County Jail had confiscated his

Gucci clothes and removed access to video visitation for around

three months. All of this is a result of promoting his latest project

through an Instagram video, but he doesn’t have any regrets.


“To all my fans i love y’all and truly appreciate y’all,” YNW Melly

said. “the broward county main jail lieutenant had confiscated my

gucci shoes and my gucci sock / headband due to the promotion

video i posted for my album in just a matter of slime last Friday

and they have took my video visitation privileges for 90 days so i

cannot interact with my family and fans through video visit.”


He added, “but the risk was worth it we went #1. they can take my

YNW Melly was arrested and charged with two counts of first-

degree murder in February 2019 for allegedly shooting two

members of his crew, YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy,

with prosecutors seeking the death penalty.

Just a Moment of Slime is stacked with features from Lil Baby,

Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Kodak Black, Queen

Naija, Lil Tjay, Kevin Gates and Tee Grizzley. The project serves as

the follow-up to his debut album Melly vs. Melvin, which was

released in November 2019.


According to sources, YNW Melly worked on the album for eight

months over the phone with sound engineers, but recorded his

own verses before entering prison. The title of the album comes

from Melly being unable to get a trial date due to the COVID-19

pandemic shutting down courts. The status of his hearing is

unknown at this time.
