Who Is Mel Murda? New Details On Bloods Leader Who Asked Followers To Take Out Tekashi 6ix9ine

If you're going to play stupid games, it's safe to say you're going to win stupid prizes. And for Tekashi 6ix9ine, it's safe to say he played the stupidest game of all when he went toe-to-toe with one of the leaders of the Bloods gang. Even though he's going away for a little while (11 years, to be exact), you'd best believe that when he gets out, it's a wrap for Tekashi 6ix9ine, because the streets never forget. Who is Mel Murda, a/k/a Jamel Jones, and what's his connection to Tekashi 6ix9ine?

These days, Tekashi 6ix9ine is more known for his propensity to snitch on everybody and their mothers than he is for his music (which is all for the better, because his music is straight-up basura de mierda). Supposedly, 6ix9ine (real name: Daniel Hernandez) is going into the witness protection program thanks to his recent testimony, in which he, amongst other things, accused Cardi B of being in a gang. Other reports suggest that 6ix9ine is hemming and hawing about entering witness protection, which would be the height of stupidity if he ultimately ends up not taking up the Federal government on the offer, because if there's one thing that the streets never do, it's forget. And given that Mel Murda had all his business put out there by the Human Rainbow Skittles Bag (I mean, Tekashi 6ix9ine), it's safe to say that Mel will make sure that Mr. Hernandez is not long for this Earth. 

Play stupid games, win ... you know the rest. 

Anyway, here's what we know about Mel Murda, the leader of the Bloods gang who threatened Tekashi 6ix9ine.

1. He's considered "The Godfather" of the Bloods. 

According to NME, Jamel Jones (who is, of course, better known as Mel Murda) is not necessarily considered a "leader" of the Bloods gang, so much as he's considered "The Godfather." One of the reasons the U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Bermanto referred to Mel Murda as a "godfather" is because all the other high-ranking leaders in the Bloods are either dead or incarcerated. 

2. Mel Murda was sentenced in New York. 

"Judge Paul Engelmayer handed down the decision on Thursday (October 16) during a hearing at Manhattan’s Thurgood Marshall Courthouse. Upon completion of his sentence, Mel will also have five years of probation and have to pay $10,000 in forfeiture," reads a report for HipHopDX, who added that Mel Murda was also a part of rapper Jim Jones' Byrdgang and appears on a lot of Dipset tracks.

3. Prior to this dust-up with Tekashi 6ix9ine, he had no criminal offenses on his record. 

According to The New York Daily News, Mel Murda wasn't convicted of any crime, violent or otherwise. However, Judge Paul Engelmayer said that he was concerned about Mel's threat to Tekashi 6ix9ine's life. He compared Mel Murda to Henry II's comment about Thomas Becket, in which four knights misunderstood the order against him and ended up killing him. Engelmayer said that even the insinuation of violence by someone like Mel Murda could lead to his target's death, whether intended or otherwise. 

4. Mel Murda previously pleaded guilty to racketeering charges related to the Nine Trey Bloods. 

"Mel, 39, pleaded guilty back in April to racketeering and narcotics offenses. The former was for being a part of Nine Trey, and the latter was for transporting heroin and fentanyl on two occasions. One of them was when Mel sold heroin to an undercover NYPD officer on Nov. 15, 2018. That buy, set up by cooperating witness Kristian Cruz and for which Mel was paid $10,000, was filmed. Mel was arrested four days later," reported Complex Magazine

5. Mel Murda made the threat against Tekashi 6ix9ine to rapper Jim Jones. 

According to Hip Hop Wired, rapper Jim Jones — best known for appearing on Love & Hip Hop and who is a founding member of The Diplomats (better known as Dipset) — was on the other end of the line when Mel Murda said that Tekashi 6ix9ine should be "super-violated." It was later revealed that Jim Jones was the previously unnamed "Individual 1" in Tekashi 6ix9ine's testimony to the Federal government. 

6. But what was he really saying? 

For what it's worth, to "violate" someone in the hip hop world doesn't necessarily mean "go kill him." To "violate" someone means to do anything from take their chain to beat them up. It doesn't necessarily mean "kill them." On the other hand, maybe Tekashi 6ix9ine has a reason to be concerned. 

7. His assets are being seized

In addition to his 11-year sentence, All Hip Hop reports the Feds are actively attempting to seize $10,000 from Mel Murda, money they claim are proceeds from a drug deal Murda was involved with.
