Hot New Hip Hop reported on a shocking development in the case of the incarcerated rapper, Bobby Shmurda. The outlet says the 26-year-old performer will be able to get out of prison sometime in the coming month following his arrest in 2014.
As it was previously reported, Bobby Smurda was sent to prison back in 2014 which left much of the rap world screaming, “Free Bobby!” At that time, Bobby was doing very well in his career and was even at the height of it up until that point.
However, the authorities came for the rapper and he was slapped with a number of serious charges related to drugs, guns, and gang conspiracy. Bobby pled guilty and was given a seven-year sentence with December 2021 set as his release.
Hot New Hip Hop says the parole board denied him parole in September 2020 due to his behavior behind bars. According to the publication, Bobby was busted with drugs and was caught fighting in prison which squashed his chances at getting out sooner rather than later.
In other words, Bobby’s situation looked bleak, as if he wasn’t about to get out anytime soon. However, Hot New Hip Hop says Bobby is now going to get out on the 23rd of February, 2021 under the terms of what has been described as a “conditional release.”
The conditional release means Bobby will be under parole until the day his prison sentence has been reached. This means that Bobby – who was supposed to get out on the 11th of December, 2021 – will be out of prison in the coming months and then will be on parole-like-conditions until December 2021.
This wouldn’t be the first time a rapper has been let out of jail earlier than expected. As it was previously reported, Tekashi 6ix9ine – who was incarcerated on racketeering among other charges – was let out amid the coronavirus pandemic after he and his legal team claimed he was asthmatic.
Tekashi and his lawyer argued that his life was in danger if he were to be denied early release. In late 2020, Bobby’s contemporary, Rowdy Rebel, was also let out of jail.
