He says he'll have his day in court ... where he can tell his side of the story.
Silento insists he has a constitutional right to a reasonable bond in his felony murder case ... insisting he's not a flight risk.
The "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" rapper filed legal docs in DeKalb County, GA requesting the court set his bond at $25k. In docs, obtained by TMZ, Silento says he's “not an extraordinary bail risk and will not jeopardize the safety of the community if released on bail.”
