YFN Lucci Is Denied Bond In Felony Murder Case

By on January 15, 2021

– YFN Lucci appeared virtually at his first-appearance hearing in Fulton County Magistrate Court on Thursday (January 14). The 29-year-old rapper, born Rayshawn Bennett, was taken into custody earlier this week on multiple charges for his alleged role in the murder of 28-year-old James Adams.

According to the arrest warrant obtained by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Lucci was allegedly behind the wheel of the vehicle used in the drive-by that claimed one of his passengers’ life.

On the night of December 10, 2020, Lucci and “three other criminal street gang members” reportedly drove to an area “dominated by a rival gang” while two people in the car opened fire with assault-style rifles. Adams was struck in the head by return gunfire and later succumbed to his injuries at Grady Hospital.

In a video recording obtained by investigators, Adams reportedly said, “We’re fitting to fuck this city up, man!” right before the shooting.

The warrant claims Lucci drove to the 900 block of Dimmock Street about 5:15 p.m. local time and pulled onto a shoulder. Adams and 23-year-old Ra’von Boyd, who was seated in the front seat, then started spraying bullets.

Another victim, 32-year-old victim Kevin Wright, was struck in the abdomen and dropped off at a nearby fire station seeking medical assistance — he survived.
