Rapper Bobby Shmurda Released From Prison After Six Years

745ng | February 23, 2021

Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Jean Pollard) has been released from prison, according to a statement from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. “At approximately 8:30 this morning, Ackquille Pollard was conditionally released from Clinton Correctional Facility. Mr. Pollard will be under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on February 23, 2026,” the statement reads.

The rapper, whose career was on the rise at the time of his incarceration, was originally scheduled to be released in December 2021 but became eligible for conditional early release on parole due to good behavior.

 

Shmurda wrote on Instagram shortly before his release: “Thank you for remaining loyal and for riding this six year sentence out with me. I love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.”

The rapper, known for his 2014 hit song “Hot N—-,” was arrested on Dec. 24, 2014, and charged with conspiracy to murder, possession of weapons and reckless endangerment. He served two years in prison awaiting trial, and in 2016 he pleaded guilty to the charges. A judge sentenced him to seven years in prison, but it was later reduced to five years after he received credit for the two years he served while awaiting his trial.

Months before his arrest, Shmurda signed a record deal with Epic Records after “Hot N—-” peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He was set to release his debut album with the company, but it was postponed due to his imprisonment.

In 2018, he appeared on rapper 6ix9ine’s album “Dummy Boy,” delivering his verse over a prison telephone on the track “Stoopid.” Before his arrest, Shmurda released two mixtapes, “Shmurda Shmurda” and “Shmurdaville.” His debut EP, “Shmurda She Wrote,” was released on Nov. 14. 2014, less than two months before his arrest.

A video has also been shared via Instagram, which shows Bobby on video call after his release. “#BobbyShmurda is officially home from prison 🙏🏽🙏🏽”
