Mel Murda, Nine Trey boss and former Byrd Gang rapper, was sentenced today to 11 years and three months for his role in the RICO case made famous by Tekashi 6ix9ine's involvement. 

During the sentencing, Judge Engelmayer made clear that a conversation Murda [Jamel Jones] had with Jim Jones in which they spoke on "super violating" 6ix9ine weighed heavily on his decision to give Murda 135 months.

 

Murda's sentence was within Federal guidelines but his lawyer had asked Engelmayer for 78 months. The Inner City Press -- which covered the proceedings closely -- called the sentence "harsh" in light of the reduced sentenced Ro Murda got and the time served 6ix9ine is expected to receive.

Jim Jones was never charged in the case.
