Check out these new photos
Photos of Bobby Shmurda and his GS9 compatriot Rowdy Rebel have made their way on to the internet. The rappers have spent the last three years in prison after the “Hot N***a” rapper accepted a 5-year plea deal to avoid the possibility of Rebel receiving a life sentence.
Boosie Badazz―who served 8 years in prison―posted the photo of a much more swole Shmurda to his Instagram with a message of hope for the still-very-young rapper…
Bobby and Rebel were rounded up in an operation that also snagged 14 other members of his GS9 collective. Shmurda was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession. Though he accepted a plea deal, the one-time viral rapper has maintained his innocence on all the charges leveled against him.
“A witness came and said they didn’t recognize anybody. They got cops lying on the stand, he said in a 2016 interview with XXL. “They dismissed my case in Brooklyn and brought it back to Manhattan. So we got the grand jury from Manhattan and I’m trying to get the grand jury from Brooklyn because the cop testified twice and told two stories, but the judge keeps denying the motion. They just violating our rights, and then I look at them like how you want people to follow the law and y’all not even following y’all own laws?”
Bobby added that he thinks the case was motivated by his fame.
“They’re just doing this because I’m Bobby Shmurda and this is supposed to be a political case and all types of crazy sh*t,” he said. “I want people to pay attention because I want them to say what evidence they have on me. I want them to put it out there because there’s no evidence whatsoever. They don’t have me conspiring to murder nobody, no guns, no fingerprints, none of my DNA is on the guns. This sh*t is crazy.”
Three Years Later
His mother agreed that her son was being made an example of for political reasons. She says the high-profile nature of his rap career caused the courts to be harsher on him than they would have to an everyday citizen.
“I’m feeling like I’m in limbo,” she told XXL. “I just don’t know what’s going on and, sadly enough, I feel like my son is being mistreated. I feel like you have probable cause to lock them up, they’re innocent until proven guilty but I just wish that they would treat him like Ackquille Pollard [and not Bobby Shmurda]. I just feel like it’s a Bobby Shmurda cause, and that’s not fair. Then, I have only two sons and both of them are involved so it’s very strenuous.”
