BOBBY SHMURDA TO REMAIN IN PRISON UNTIL 2021
Bobby Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, reportedly had a meeting with the parole board last week and it did not go well. The ‘Hot N—–” rapper’s release was denied and he is expected to serve the rest of the maximum sentence until December 11, 2021. The upsetting decision was probably made due to Schmurda receiving 11 violations during his time in prison, including drug possession, fighting, and using a shank as a weapon. Reportedly Bobby’s mother is very upset not only because she misses her son but she says he is ready to release new music and was planning to release a documentary soon. Looks like that will all have to wait until 2021.
Back in 2016, Bobby Shmurda copped a plea deal for conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon. His other charges which included conspiracy to murder was dropped from the case.
