The Baton Rouge rapper explained that his incarcerated friend lost his phone privileges so the two haven’t spoken to one another since 2022.
“Yeah. I had to because they kept tagging my name and stuff on Twitter,” Fredo said when asked it he’s kept up with the trial. As for how he felt about the hung jury, he added: “I felt bad because I know a lot of people who have been in a situation like that, waiting years and years and years… I just felt bad for him because I know he’s ready to get it over with.”
Bang continued, “We ain’t even talked in a minute, because they stripped him of all his phone privileges, and stuff. He can’t even use the phone. So it’s been a very long time since I talked to him.”
During the first trial, Fredo Bang made headlines when he refused to answer any questions during a pre-trial conference.
Melly is accused of killing two fellow rappers, Christopher “Juvy” Thomas Jr and Anthony “Sakchaser” Williams, who were shot inside a Jeep driven by their friend, Cortland “YNW Bortlen” Henry. Prosecutors say he then tried to cover up his alleged crimes by trying to make it look like a drive-by.
Florida prosecutors are also planning to introduce his lyrics into evidence. If found guilty, he could face the death penalty.
