Bobby Shmurda has been released after serving six years in prison. The US rapper, real name Ackquille Pollard, was arrested in 2014. He later took a plea deal and was sentenced to seven years in prison on weapons and conspiracy charges. Migos' Quavo told Billboard he would be picking the rapper up from New York's Clinton Correctional Facility. Scroll below for more details!
On Monday, an Instagram story was shared from Bobby Shmurda's account thanking fans for 'remaining loyal' and 'riding out' the sentence with him. 'I love you all and look forward to seeing you soon,' it read.
When asked about picking him up, Migos rapper Quavo stated,
'I'm going to get my guy.'
Bobby Shmurda became one of the most exciting new names in hip-hop after he rose to fame when a number of his songs went viral. He told 1Xtra's DJ Semtex at the time that he was 'speechless' about the success of his track 'Hot Boy'.
Fans will remember Migos teasing a collaborative album with Bobby Shmurda before his arrest. In 2019, Quavo tweeted about the project, hinting that it could be released soon. But TMZ report that Bobby Shmurda won't be in the studio straight away - and will be spending time with his family first.
Rapper Rowdy Rebel recently spoke about their plans for the future. 'We definitely gon' show up to Summer Jam,' he said about the annual New York concert.
'I normally wouldn't speak on my brother's behalf, but I know my brother ain't gonna miss Summer Jam. Some things are just mandatory.'
Pop Smoke, who was killed last year, had also said he had unreleased music with Bobby Shmurda.
