YNW Melly has been charged with killing his YNW crew members Sakchaser and Juvy. He is also a suspect in the slaying of a cop.
There's a theory that Melly is a schizophrenic who's been done in by his violent alternate personality Melvin.
YNW has spoken on Melvin in interviews, on social media, and in the lyrics of his hit "Murder On My Mind".
YNW Melly is actually a bipolar schizophrenic and his other personality (Melvin) is the one who actually killed his friends pic.twitter.com/7XVTT1bT8o— chinks (@NotChinks) February 18, 2019
At another interview with Power 105.1 Melly talks more about having multiple personalities, which he claims are 6, and gives a break down on half of them. pic.twitter.com/tZ6ML7kI7M— chinks (@NotChinks) February 18, 2019
While talking to Montreality he gives more insight on Melvin and how he is. Melly thinks Melvin could be dangerous and says he needs to stop letting Melvin out pic.twitter.com/tDuEhiIAaX— chinks (@NotChinks) February 18, 2019
The titles to Mellys last 2 projects are actually messages from Melvin to Melly and the rest of the world.— chinks (@NotChinks) February 19, 2019

My theory is that Sakchaser and Juvy may have done something to Melly and Melvin didn't like it. Melvin may have convinced himself that they were out to get him and his only way to get rid of them was to take over Melly and do it himself.— chinks (@NotChinks) February 19, 2019
Melly turned himself in because he realized what Melvin did and the guilt was too hard on him. In the caption he's somewhat vague since he knows he didn't do it himself because he thinks of Melvin as a whole other person. pic.twitter.com/9X0HF1eTE1— chinks (@NotChinks) February 19, 2019
"Melvin, I only let him out at night time. When the night hits, he really comes. Melvin is like, once you play with Melly, Melvin just don't like that, Melvin is on your ass. No cap. He don't play. Don't f with him. He know who he love but he got that fire inside him," Melly said of Melvin.
What do you think about that theory?
There's another theory that Melly sold his soul to the devil in exchange for success. And it temporarily worked. While we wouldn't usually entertain such nonsense, the guy advancing the theory accurately suggested Melly snuffed out Sakchaser and Juvy one month before he was charged with the crimes.
