"Murder suspect demands Drake and Akademiks testify at XXXTENTACION trial."

XXXTentacion, a rapper, was murdered in Florida in 2018 at 20.

Dedrick Williams, the suspect in the murder, has pleaded not guilty and has called on several high-profile people to testify in the case, including rappers Joe Budden, 6ix9ine, Quavo, Takeoff, and Drake.

Williams' attorney has mentioned explicitly that the testimony of Drake is "material" to the case due to the documented beef between the two rappers that began in 2017.

Williams and his legal team also believe that Drake may have referenced the murder in one of his songs.

DJ Akademiks is also being requested to testify in the trial due to his alleged comments about the case while streaming.

Williams' attorney believes a court order will be necessary to ensure Akademiks' participation in a deposition.

It is still being determined if Drake and Akademiks will be required to testify in the trial.

The trial is ongoing, and no further updates have been provided.
