Rapper Bobby Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Jean Pollard) was released from jail on Tuesday (February 23rd) after doing six years of a seven-year sentence for conspiracy and weapons possession.
The rise and fall of the 26-year-old was quick, seeing that New York MC was originally arrested back in December 2014, just months after dropping his biggest track – becoming a national phenomenon. He was taken down alongside several of his GS9 crew, including rapper Rowdy Rebel, on conspiracy to murder, weapons possession and reckless endangerment charges.
The rapper was denied parole in September 2020 and was originally ordered to serve his sentence until December 11th, 2021. Now, he is out and will remain on parole until 2026.
Shmurda’s pal Quavo said he was planning to pick his friend up on Tuesday, “I’m going to get my guy,” the Migos frontman told Billboard before Shmurda’s release. “I’m personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I’m bout to go get him. I’m gonna let him show you how I’m gonna pick him up, yessir.” They have a specific bond, seeing that the two had been working on a project together prior to the arrest, titled Shmigo Gang. Quavo further teased another collaboration in the vault at the end of 2019. See what the group was working on below.
