Murder On My Mind: The “Secret” Ohio Origins of YNW Melly. Is He Really from Gifford, Florida?

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

After recently watching the Official YNW Melly Documentary on the official YNW Melly YouTube channel, we at Put It Out There TV noticed that some of YNW Melly’s history seemed to be left out of the very interesting documentary, which has already surpassed 1 million views on YouTube. While watching the YNW Melly Documentary, we learned that YNW Melly’s mother, according to our very reliable sources, was born, “Jamie Demons”. Jamie Demons became pregnant with Jamell Maurice Demons (YNW MELLY) at the tender age of 14 years old. What we found to be peculiar is that Melly’s father was not mentioned in any shape, form or fashion. Respectfully asking, is this paternal history being kept a secret or is YNW Melly, the YSL recording artist born Jamell Maurice Demons, a product of immaculate conception? We’ll let you guys be the judge of that after you watch the YNW Melly Documentary below. If you’ve already seen it, then skip to the paragraph below the video.

The official YNW MELLY Documentary

Somewhere near the 3-minute point of the YNW Melly documentary, YNW Melly‘s mother, Jamie Demons – King, states that she got “pregnant at 14 years old and gave birth to Melly in her 9th-grade year of high school. She failed to mention the name of that Florida high school. Was the high school even located in the Gifford Territory of the Florida State Republic at all (hint)? We’ll get to that later. Another thing that stands out to us is that we, unfortunately, don’t hear Melly’s mother mention anything about Melly’s biological father. For obvious reasons, we feel this doesn’t do any justice to YNW Melly‘s story. This way of story-telling seems to perpetuate the negative stereotype that so-called black men are “absentee fathers” who take no part in their children’s lives. On top of that, we are sure YNW Melly’s fans would love to know where YNW Melly gets his knack for music from, and that his biological father who was born and raised in the same small city as Melly’s mother, is a very talented singer with a beautiful singing voice (more on him later).


The way Melly’s mother spoke about herself, she sure left that question to be asked since she didn’t willingly tell us. The way she spoke, those with the untrained ear would simply assume that Jamie Demons – King was in fact born and raised in Florida and that Florida is where YNW Melly (Jamell Maurice Demons) was conceived when this is the furthest thing from the truth. We still are confused as to why YNW Melly’s mother would leave out those facts, especially since she had already advised the viewers that she was living in Briarwood apartments with her mother while pregnant with YNW Melly. We’re assuming that the divulging of that piece of information may have possibly lead to the interviewer inquiring about YNW Melly’s seemingly mysterious biological father. Maybe that’s apart of the new marketing scheme for Hip-Hop artists these days. In order to build up more mystery around them, they’re marketed to appear to be rich and successful independent artists when they’re not, and now, they’re marketed as being rich and successful without their fathers in their lives, as if it is “cool” to have that non-existent biological father who has never taken part in your life. Eh…. maybe we’re just being a tad too anal, but we like to call such a copy write the “Jesus Presskit”.


Before we go further, we want to make it very clear that we aren’t accusing anyone of any conspiracies or of purposely trying to hide something that would cause YNW Melly’s fans to look at him in a negative light. As a media outlet, we are simply taking advantage of the opportunity to utilize one of our confidential sources to create some quality content built around YNW Melly. With that being said, it has been brought to our attention that YNW Melly’s mother, Jamie Demons – King, is originally Jamie Demons of Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio. Jamie was raised in Elyria, Ohio up until she became pregnant with Jamell Maurice Demons, a.k.a. YNW Melly. YNW Melly was in fact conceived on the South side of Elyria, Ohio. Jamie Demons attended Elyria Westwood Jr. High School and for a short time, went on to attend Elyria High School, getting pregnant with Melly and THEN moving to Florida while carrying YNW Melly.


Watch as YNW Melly evades the direct question about his mother and father!


As far as Melly’s biological father, we’ve been made aware that he would rather stay out of the spotlight, especially with the news of YNW Melly being indicted on two homicide charges related to him being alleged to have murdered his two best friends, YNW Juvy and YNW Sak Chaser, both of who appeared in the “Melly” documentary. We can tell you this though; YNW Melly’s father was born and raised on the South side of Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio. He attended the Elyria (Benjamin) Franklin Elementary School, Elyria Westwood Jr. High School, and the Elyria High School. With that being said, we’ll leave the rest of the genealogy research up to you guys. But believe us when we say that YNW Melly was Taylor-made in Elyria, Ohio.
