Bobby Shmurda is Coming Home And Ready to Hit the Studio

In 2016, Miami born rapper, Bobby Shmurda was sentenced to 7 years in prison on weapons possession charges (So much for the Second Amendment).  Now, after serving 7 years (he’s been locked up since 2014), its looking like he’s coming home… sooner than we thought. 

In records shared by Complex, the rapper has reportedly been granted conditional release from New York's Clinton Correctional Facility on Feb. 23, 2021. His current release date is set for Dec. 11, 2021.

The decision was made by the Time Allowance Committee, consisting of prison staff, which restored his previously lost "good time" off his maximum sentence. If released, Shmurda will be under parole supervision but any bad behavior could nullify his early conditional release. He will serve the remainder of his sentence under community supervision until his Dec. 11, 2021, maximum expiration date.

The 26-year-old rapper signed a deal with Epic Records after his song "Hot Nigga" peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014. His debut EP, Shmurda She Wrote, was released on November 10, 2014. And he’s been serving time since December 2014, when he was initially charged with conspiracy to murder, weapons possession and reckless endangerment. 

He was sentenced to seven years in prison after accepting a deal to plead guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession. He was denied parole in September 2020.

According to Shmurda's mom, Leslie Pollard, once her son is released, he's ready to hit the recording studio and work on his music again. Let's just make sure he does it with a mask on and leaves the strap at home.
