Melly, born Jamell Demons, stands accused of shooting his friends multiple times and staging a crime scene to look like a drive-by shooting. The incident conjures a haunting image: two gruesome deaths shrouded in mystery, thought to be the result of senseless violence, but upon closer examination, perhaps the result of something more sinister. It's unknown what kind of gun was used to kill Williams and Thomas Jr. The visual begins with a chain-heavy Melly cradling a man covered in blood and surrounded by yellow tape while two children look on next to a police officer. Melly appears several times in various scenarios in the video: bound by a straitjacket, wearing a large snake draped around his shoulders, and, for the majority of the time, pointing guns at the camera. The theme, it should be noted, is not new in hip-hop — nor is rapping about illicit activities.
