YNW Melly is petitioning the court to be released from prison early due to the coronavirus pandemic -- but fellow rapper Boosie Badazz is doubtful that the judge will allow him to walk free.
"When you silent, if you not working for them, if you silent, they will deteriorate your health. They will do anything." Boosie adds that the fact that Melly has not been cooperative with the authorities, he's guaranteed to have a hard time behind bars.
Melly tested positive for COVID-19 behind bars and his attorney says that the rapper is "dying" in jail. Earlier this week, it was revealed that he is being treated for the virus with Tylenol and Gatorade.
"Supplemental motion was filed today detailing the jail having Mr. Demons share a cell with another COVID19 positive inmate. This is not recommended by any medical physician. The jails and prisons are not prepared to handle this crisis. Rules on alcohol based hand sanitizer and wipes must be lifted at a bare min. Inmates are passing trays, jail phones and shared items that are not sanitized when passed between inmates," his attorney wrote via Instagram two weeks ago.
Melly and his cellmate have since been separated.
