Bobby Shmurda Released From Prison Early

After serving six years of a seven-year sentence for conspiracy and weapons possession, rapper Bobby Shmurda was released from jail on Tuesday (February 23rd)

The rise and fall of the 26-year-old, born Ackquille Jean Pollard, was fast and furious with the New York MC arrested in December 2014, just months after releasing his biggest single and becoming a national phenomenon. The artist was taken down alongside several of his GS9 crew, including rapper Rowdy Rebel, on conspiracy to murder, weapons possession and reckless endangerment charges.

Shmurda was denied parole in September 2020 and was originally ordered to serve his sentence until December 11th, 2021 and will remain on parole until 2026.

Shmurda’s pal Quavo said he was planning to pick his friend up from prison 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.” The two men have a specific bond, working on the Schmigo Gang project together prior to the arrest.

Quavo recently teased another collaboration in the vault at the end of 2019.
