YNW Bortlen Says They're About To 'Shock the World' In Court

YNW Bortlen is awaiting trial next month with YNW Melly as they are both up against the death penalty.

He posted a picture from court and wrote "Bouta Shock the world." He did not add any other details about what is going to be so shocking.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty as they claim "the capital felony was committed for pecuniary gain, the capital felony was especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel, the capital felony was a homicide and was committed in a cold, calculated, and premeditated manner without any pretense of moral or legal justification."

YNW Bortlen and YNW Melly will stand trial on March 7, 2022 for double murder.

The rapper is being held after he was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in February 2019 for allegedly shooting YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. 

Months ago YNY Melly shared with fans that he had his privileges revoked for three months after posting to Instagram.
