Shmurda was arrested when he was only 20 years old in December 2014. Some of his charges being gang conspiracy and gun possession. The rapper got arrested months after signing a huge record deal with Epic Records. Who hasn’t made many comments on Bobby Shmurda as of today?
While awaiting trial, Shmurda served up to two years in prison. In 2016, he pleaded guilty according to Variety. His original prison sentence was seven years, but due to the previous two years he served while awaiting trial, he was given credit for those years. Which lowered his prison sentence down to five more years.
The rapper also racked up a couple of violations while serving his prison sentence. Some of those violations being fighting and possession of contraband. Which those violations could have influenced the decision on his parole being denied.
Although Shmurda isn’t set to be released until next year, many people are really hyped with how his career is going to go after his first day out. Especially since it’s been reported by TMZ, that his mother said that he has new music to release once out of prison, and he aspires to make a documentary about himself as well.
