In recent developments, a video featuring YNW Melly in an interrogation room has surfaced, sparking speculations about his cooperation with authorities in a 2015 shooting case. Amidst his ongoing double-murder trial, unexpected support for Melly has emerged from none other than music executive Wack 100. Wack 100 voiced concerns over the irresponsible actions of the prosecutors and District Attorney (D.A.) for leaking the footage, potentially jeopardizing Melly’s safety.
Taking to Instagram, Wack 100 fearlessly expressed his thoughts, questioning the lack of attempted murder charges against the District Attorney or Police chief for releasing interrogation footage that is meant exclusively for law enforcement access within the D.A. office or court premises.
Accompanying his post was a screenshot of the alleged footage, with Wack 100 emphasizing the contradictions inherent in the situation. He highlighted how street politics, once acted upon, are used to enforce the law, yet the release of this footage could place YNW Melly in harm’s way, particularly while he remains incarcerated. Wack insinuated that this could be a deliberate tactic to undermine the rapper from the group “223s.”
Wack went on to raise concerns about law enforcement’s decision to make public a video that inevitably incites violence towards YNW Melly. He questioned the motive behind exposing Melly, considering that the ongoing case seems to be falling apart. He further pondered the legality of such actions within the boundaries defined by the law.
Wack concluded by highlighting the distinction between public records and interrogation footage. While documents are indeed part of the public record and adhere to legal norms, the accessibility of interrogation footage is a different matter.
However, XXL magazine points out that in Florida, as well as in other states across America, media and the public can request access to interrogation footage. The recently surfaced footage pertains to a 2015 case in which YNW Melly faced charges for firing a gun near a local high school. In the video, the rapper explains his actions as an act of self-defense against a student who brandished a firearm. Melly also divulged the last name of the person involved and provided details about the weapon used.
