EXCLUSIVE: "Godfather" Of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods Asks Judge For Mercy In Letter After Tekashi 6ix9ine Testimony

Mel Murda was once an artist signed to Diplomat Records who ran with rapper Jim Jones and now he is asking a judge for leniency after Tekashi 6ix9ine snitched against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

(AllHipHop News) Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods' alleged "Godfather" Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones is asking a judge to take it easy on him when he is sentenced later this month.

In April of 2019, Mel Murda pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of participating in a narcotics distribution conspiracy for selling a kilogram of fentanyl.

He is one of a dozen men accused of sparking a wave of violence around New York City in a RICO case against Tekashi 6ix9ine and the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

6ix9ine took the stand during an eight-day trial to testify against his former associates, which resulted in the convictions of fellow Nine Trey gang members Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and Anthony "Harv" Ellison.

Mack is awaiting sentencing for dealing drugs, while Ellison will be sent to prison for kidnapping 6ix9ine during an internal dispute over the rapper's career.

Mel Murda's lawyer Scott Leemon asked presiding Judge Paul Engelmayer to stay within sentencing guidelines, and give his client 78 months in prison since his infractions were non-violent.

In a lengthy letter to the court which can be found below, Mel Murda explained how he was released from prison in 2005 and was attempting to turn his life around.

In 2006 he entered into a recording contract with Diplomat Records as a part of Jim Jones's group Byrd Gang and that is when he fell back into his old ways.

"Although music provided Jamel with a legitimate means of supporting himself, it also kept him in contact with elements of New York City’s gang culture. It was this continued association with gang members that led to his conviction in this case," Mel Murda's lawyer Scott Leemon said.

In a heartfelt letter, Mel Murda, 39, pleaded for Judge Engelmayer to take it easy on him for the sake of his two children, when he is formally sentenced on October 17th, 2019.

Here is Mel Murda's letter to Judge Engelmayer in full:

I hope this letter reaches you and you are in good health and spirits. As for me, I am just sitting at MDC thinking about a lot of poor choices I've made in life.

When I think back, a lot of my issues started when I was a young kid just trying to belong.

Coming up as a kid, I did not really have a positive role model in my life.

I found myself as a very angry teenager because of the things I experienced and the things I saw at home behind closed doors.

I took to the streets heavy at the age of fourteen. A lot of my friends suffered the same way I did, or worse, so we became each other's comfort blankets.

The older guys in my neighborhood that embraced us were thugs off the corner and they were involved in illegal activities like drugs and violence.

But at least they seemed to care about our well being. Or so we thought at the time. In reality, I can see now, that they were really just molding us to become young criminals because they knew we really had nobody and we were gullible young kids looking to fit in and to find father figures.

We looked to these guys for the love we were missing. That is when the United Blood Nation came into my life at fifteen years of age. Between my anger and loyalty to the game, I made a lot of bad decisions trying not to let the gang down.

By the time I was eighteen going on nineteen years old, my childhood sweetheart, Dawn Gillespie, gave birth to my beautiful daughter That's when I realized I wanted more for myself, my child, and for my heart: Dawn. But the streets still had a hold on me.

I was at war in my own head. I wanted to fall back from the gang life and do the right thing by my family, but I felt like I was somehow being wrong to my gang family, because at that point, I really believed they had been there for me when I had no one.

What I did was try to distance myself as much as possible. I started working in the music industry. I got signed to Diplomat Records when I was twenty-four years old and things were looking up for me. I found myself staying away from negativity but I was becoming very popular and with that life came a lot of envy, money, and women.

This all caused me to lose Dawn because of my own cheating and inability to be home because of the demands of touring and life in the industry.

I found myself become depressed and falling back on my old ways, going back to the streetsbbecause I was not happy. I had lost my earlier life even though I now had money and fame. I felt like something was missing. A lot of dormant anger from my childhood came back to the surface.

When I tried to return to the game, they were mostly only concerned with my present reputation and what I could do for them financially, and it was at that point that I realized that their love was never genuine. They gave me a position of authority because of who I was and my age.

During that time, in my mind, I decided that I was done with the streets but I still tried to keep ties with some of the guys I knew from the gang.

I know that was where I went wrong. My real family, I now realized, was my mother, Dawn, my aunts, and my brother. I got back together with Dawn and she gave me a baby boy named - my pride and joy. I realized I have to break the cycle because I don't want my son or daughter going through what I did.

I want the best for them.

I know I should have woken up and realized this earlier, especially when I was shot five times and my loved ones almost lost me. Now I find myself caught up in this case and this is the first time I'm in real serious trouble.

But, I can promise you that it will be my last. I am not a part of the violence in my case, and this federal arrest has been a real wake-up call for me.

I sincerely apologize for all my actions and I take full responsibility. I ask for leniency and a second chance to return to my children as soon as possible. I want to return to my family and right all my wrongs so I can be there for them. They need me and I definitely need them.

It is a must that I break the cycle.

It is killing me that I'm not there for my children and my loved ones. I am completely done with the streets. I plan to change my environment, as well as the company that I keep.

To me, right now, the most important company to keep is that of my family and my children. Please allow me to return to them as soon as possible. I don't need a whole lot of time to fix myself. I need counseling and for you to believe in me, and see that I'm not the monster they paint me to be.

Please understand that I'm human, and I ask you for a second chance.

Respectfully submitted,

Jamel Jones

Here is my public opinion, if this is the way people are thinking in is era.

  1. Do people need to know the difference between what a snitch is? Tekashi 6ix9ine NO snitch, he did right. A real gangster back then or a mobster wouldn't backstab there own. The code of the street has terminated in this era. From the top of the White House to the embodiment, there is no code. Tekashi 6ix9ine had a plan from day one, (a formula) to increase Revenue on social media. We were born and raised in the hood of Brooklyn, like everyone, is about making money and taking care of their families. He helps out other members in the blood to gain profits, at the same time, he feeds them, gave them clothing, put some money in their pockets, shares the glory, just having fun, was the deal. Tekashi 6ix9ine made a deal with the son of the devil, call it as you which, Tekashi gamble and roll the dice. The consequence, he was robbed, kidnap, beat-up, tortured. Tekashi sacrifices his own life to deal with the bullshit he didn't have to. His family threatened before, not after. He wasn't even a blood member, technically speaking. It was a deal made by both Shotti and Tekashi, using social media, which was Tekashi idea, they ran with it. After finding out the truth, the torment caused by his people, How would anyone feel, sabotage betrayal. People don't understand, everything Tekashi said and done was exposed on YouTube Instagram. He had nothing to hide because it was all staged. The mind of Tekashi. And the world we live in today's society, the new FBI, CIA, and NSA is facebook, Instagram, youtube social media. Make you wonder if the election 2016 rigged from the beginning. A white nationalist at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The biggest scandal in the USA. Still, happen. Everyone is comparing Tekashi, a snitch when his objection was not to follow or decriminalize himself further. I ask this question, what would you do? Serve time for something you didn't plan, participated, and almost got killed for it? Where is the logic in all this? The line was cross, and they cross it. The price they paid was naive and ignorant. If your down with gang members, there rules. The rules are broken, (breach of contract) No code of conduct street or otherwise. Plan now (survival of the fitness)

Mel, you already got your second chance when you were released from prison in 2005 as you explained, so this would be a 3rd chance. You don't think that this Judge knows your history. You did not turn your life around the last time. You went back into gang life. You recently kidnapped a man and beat him up and lord know what else you have done that you didn't get caught for. Now you are asking for leniency for your actions once again. Sorry bro, but you need to do the time for the crime. It will be the Judge's fault that you get less time. Don't use your family as an excuse to get out sooner, that is not what being a man is. Contemplate and think about all the people you hurt throughout your life and when you get out do something good and move to another state away from gang life. You had 2 chances already. You can't just kidnap people and beat them up so bad that he has to be hospitalized.

Hey the comments made about Jones plea for mercy I think is valid. I ain't saying what he did was right, but I understand where he at right now in his life. I've been incarcerated over 20 years of my life in and out prisons and jails since I was 13, ran the streets since I was about 5, I'm 39 now just got out in 2-9-19 my point is before you say show Jones no mercy, cause to keep it real everyone has done wrong. like Jones say he is only human. like i said i ain't saying what he was or what he did was right what I'm saying that society has it twisted to judge a man by his past and say that is who he is and always will be, but the truth is the past doesn't define a person cause its history he or she can't do nothing about it what really define a person is in the moment we are in today now cause the choices we make right now will dictate the next second that is moving forward, cause when we judge a person by their past we only keep them in the gutter, I'm homeless because of my past because of my choices of my past i paid my dues and I'm shown no mercy cause of my past, but today I'm changing people's opinion about who I was cause I ain't out there on the grind hustling. I'm working busting my butt off and reaching out to the problems of society and now people are saying that ain't you no more because of the choices I'm making today what I'm saying Jones letter is valid Jones has the potential to do good cause of his history he has an influence over the culture of the streets and all that comes with it the streets will listen to the streets a hard life only make diamonds. I want the judge to show Jones mercy cause i think he can do alot of good with the right influences so don't judge a person for what you see but look within that person.

I can't believe how many "people" here are all like "Oh it sounds legit", "Judge should have mercy", blah blah blah. Literally zero of the animals involved deserve freedom AT ALL. They should line them all up and gun them down, toss the useless corpses in a ditch.

Hell, set fire to ALL the ghettos. "Sometimes the streets are all they know"... What a stupid nigger thing to say. Useless fuckin' porch monkey, welfare recipient, criminal parasites. Lincoln freed the slaves, but I bet he would've just exterminated you all if he knew that THIS was the end result. Fuckin' subhuman useless garbage slime.

I think he sincere in his apology but I think he would go back to the streets cause he the leader, they gunna bring him back in or ax him for leaving. Some people don't know how the game works. He gunna go out only one way, with his life, that's the gang motto.

That's exactly what he should have done. He went to trial, didn't snitch and asked for a light sentence. Sounds very reasonable to me. Two felonies. Three years locked up. $180k annually for the last 20 years. Legit!

Everyone deserves 2nd chances regardless; everyone thinks it’s crazy for God to leave 5000 for just 1 lost soul until u are the 1 lost and asking to be found. I pray he gets the 2nd chance he’s asking for and if he does get it he has the strength to follow through; couse it’s a cruel world for a sinner trying to do better.. I really Hope God lightens this guys sentence so he can see Gods Listening.

Everyone is sorry, once they get caught. Gotta love the picture of six nine holding the rifle. Nothing says hard core like a 22 caliber rifle with a walmart red dot and laser on it. My 6 year old shoots one one of those. .... probably better than he does.

Everyone so hard, I don’t wish jail on no one, long as he ain’t rat, he can try to ask the judge to let give him a lot of time, he’s a product of his environment, some time you just don’t know nothing but the street life, I pray he get less time, FREE MEL MURDA,

This was actually a very well worded statement. But let's be real for a second. He said he was in the street, and looked up at these gang members as father figures and role models. So your telling me that a person that rapes women, robs beats up people, and sells drugs is your role models. OMG. Just wow. Also I think it's kinda funny, that these gang members wanna act cool, and tough but then they could get jail time. They wanna ask "for mercy " like bro come on. Here a lesson for you less fortunate people of this society. Don't join gangs. It ethier going to get you killed or In jail. Cause nothing good can come from doing crimes, especially with group of people.

I served 25 straight joints('93-2018), always standing on my own two. One thing any real nigga knows is that with your mouth you can be anybody. You can even pop and have a rep that rings bells. But when it's time to face reality and those football numbers, that's when the world watches to wait and see if you're really built like that. Stand up Bro! That's all I can say to you.

It's garduation day. They caught that number. Part of the deal when you get shit so dicked up. That's the game. Tighten up your shit next time. If ever you get one flinging around a key of fentanyl during a drug epedemic like its an 8th of girl scout cookies necause its cool you got your weed card. Probably talking out of turn in the club and on the phone. No such thing as a half way crook is some real shit these so called crews need to redefine themselves with. The biggest virtue of a gangater is shuting the fuck up and laying low. Welcome to your new reality. That's the deal you made with yourself with in the beggining. Right???

Sounds like its legitimate. People know the risk when they do drugs. Its not unfamiliar. Its all a matter of choice. Just like it was a choice to sell which they also know the risk. In poverty, you choose to take risk or eat syrup bread. Its not his fault he became apart of what was most influential to him. You become a product of your environment- science fact. Changing and understanding different environmental point of views requires counseling. Those that are willing are able to change. Its not up to you hypocrites to decide his fate. Choices are limited everywhere. The government is at fault for every individual behind bars anyway for not providing subpar standards across the entire country instead offering suburbs to some and projects to others. What the fuck do you think is going to happen with such a division im this country? Some will have and some will want to have while not having but see no way to obtain what they feel they deserve = crime. The government feels no remorse for this. Counseling should be in every poverty driven area to help children understand other environmental perspectives. Its unfortunate but just like someone died yesterday from drugs, another will die today, and another will die tomorrow. If the government wants to see a change in drug offenders they know what to so. Counseling to kids where a lot of the distribution originates. At least then, with the children knowing the consequences early i would feel comfortable with the sentencing. As of right now its totally inhumane. Parents are at fault for children making bad decisions for not teaching them well but government is at fault for parents not knowing any better. Its a never ending cycle that will not end bc the government is to busy intervening in foreign affairs rather than fix their problems right here at home. Understand what it means when they say God bless America. We need it.
