Rapper Ackquille Pollard best known as Bobby Shmurda, is to remain in prison till December 2021 and serve his full seven years sentence for conspiracy to murder. This is because he was denied release after his plea for possible parole with the New York state board was denied.
According to reports, Bobby Shmurda initial interview with the New York State board was mid August, but was delayed till September 15, where the bad news was broken to him and his team.
Bobby Shmurda, known for his 2014 hit song “Hot N—-,” was arrested on Dec. 24, 2014, and charged with conspiracy to murder, possession of weapons and reckless endangerment. He served two years in prison awaiting trial, and in 2016 he pleaded guilty to the charges.
A judge sentenced him to seven years in prison, but it was later reduced to five years after he received credit for the two years he served while awaiting his trial.
Months before his arrest, Bobby Shmurda signed a record deal with Epic Records after “Hot N—-” peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He was set to release his debut album with the company, but it was postponed due to his imprisonment.
In 2018, he appeared on rapper 6ix9ine’s album “Dummy Boy,” delivering his verse over a prison telephone on the track “Stoopid.” Before his arrest, Shmurda released two mixtapes, “Shmurda Shmurda” and “Shmurdaville.”
His debut EP, “Shmurda She Wrote,” was released on Nov. 14. 2014, less than two months before his arrest.
