YNW Melly's father, Donte "tha Gift" Taylor, dropped an emotional song defending the rapper who is locked up in Florida on double murder charges.

In the song, Donte said Melly didn't kill his friend. He regrets not being there for most of his son's childhood. "It was out of my hands," he said.

The song comes days after Melly's mother cried while listening to Melly's music on Instagram Live.

Donte was barely 14 when he fathered Melly with the rapper's unwed teenage mom. Melly's mother was only 14 when she gave birth to him 19 years ago.

Melly faces the death penalty for the murders of his childhood friends, aspiring rappers Anthony "YNW Sakchaser" Williams, 21, and Christopher "YNW Juvy" Thomas, Jr., 19, in Fort Lauderdale on October 26, 2018.

Another aspiring rapper Cortlen Henry, aka YNW Bortlen, is also in jail awaiting trial in the case.

Police say the two rappers staged a drive-by shooting and concocted an alibi placing themselves as witnesses to the drive-by shooting. Surveillance footage shows Melly exiting the back seat of the vehicle where the victims were shot.

Melly is best known for his track "Mixed Personalities", featuring Kanye West, and his single "Murder On My Mind" which garnered over 200 million streams and was certified platinum.

    Child abandoners really are the lowest and sorriest poor excuses for human beings. Child abandonment is a choice unless a father doesn't know about the child. Reckoning is upon all the child abandoners. What a loser this unfortunate child's father is.

  • mzwhang90210
  • dru and neil

    I’m so confused by all this. Why did the rapper stage a double murder to begin with? Why do they all have the same name? Is his father just now trying to be a hands on parent, because it appears to be too late.

  • dru and neil

    It definitely is a choice and they should be ashamed of themselves stepping into the picture, after the kids are grown with money.

  • dru and neil

    But when your kid is facing death row, it’s a little late to be a hands on dad.

  • dru and neil

    He’s lying...instead of being a man and just saying he was too young and immature to be a dad, he’s blaming it on someone else. I’ve made mistakes with my son and owned every single last one, but people can’t do that for some reason.

  • Solstice

    LMAO!!!???

  • Solstice

    Right!! (In my Mariah Carey voice) I don’t know him/her ??

  • Wreckognize Game

    Exactly. He couldn’t find a way to reach him by phone, letter, email, social media or a door knock back then. Now that this young man is infamous and locked up you got something to say and can reach him while you are out here? I wish he would go sit down somewhere. Hopefully he goes and sits in visitation and talks to his son directly, be supportive and keeps it off the inter webs.

    Agreed! And women who lay with and procreate with child abandoners are lowlives too. If I weren't married, I would never get in a relationship with child abandoner. To think, there are women and employers who hide men from child support. Real lowlives.
