Kendrick has the whole world talking.

YNW Melly is an artist who has been going through an unfortunate situation. Overall, fans know that Melly has been incarcerated for almost six whole years. During this time, he has been investigated and put on trial for allegedly killing two of his friends. Although the first go-round was a mistrial, Melly is supposed to be retried. This has subsequently led to all sorts of delays, and no one really knows whether or not there is going to be closure, anytime soon.

Interestingly enough, Melly was name-dropped on Kendrick Lamar's new Drake diss, "Euphoria." “Yeah, Cole and Aubrey know I’m selfish, the crown is heavy/ I pray they my real friends but if not, I’m YNW Melly," Kendrick raps on the song. It's a great bar and it is probably one of the more memorable lines from the track. Having said that, it appears as though Melly was made aware of this name-drop. In fact, he made a statement to TMZ, which makes sense given the fact that Lamar's line is implying a few things.

YNW Melly Speaks

Kendrick Lamar is one of my favorite rappers so I feel honored and appalled … I’m a household name — just for the wrong shit!!!” Melly explained. It is certainly a valid way to feel given how things have shaken out here. That said, Kendrick's bar has renewed discussions around Melly's case and how some feel as though he has been mistreated. Moving forward, only time will tell whether or not Melly's trial get sped up.
