Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda plans ‘intimate dinner’ with family and wants to make music again as he prepares for early prison release from seven-year sentence
Bobby Shmurda’s plans post-prison have been revealed as the rapper prepares to be released on Tuesday.
The Brooklyn-based hitmaker, who is about to be released after serving seven years for conspiracy and weapons possession charges, wants to spend time with his family and get back to making music again.
The rapper is looking forward to enjoying an ‘intimate’ meal with his family and will relax with them for a while before getting back to his passion, Bobby’s mom Leslie Pollard told TMZ.

According to the website, Pollard said the 26-year-old star will devote ‘most, if not all, of his time to creating music again’.
Shmurda, whose legal name is Ackquille Pollard, will need to regularly check-in with his parole officer.
After his release, he will be on parole until 2026.
It was revealed last month by the New York State Department of Corrections that the Living Life hitmaker would be eligible for release early.
Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in 2016 after pleading guilty to conspiracy and weapons possession charges in connection to what prosecutors said was a leading role in the GS9 gang.

GS9 is an offshoot of the Crips in the East Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn.
At the time, he had already spent two years in prison in lieu of a $2 million bond.
The rapper burst out onto the hip-hop scene with his hit single called Hot Boy in the edited version, which subsequently went as high as number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014.
The then 19-year-old followed that up by signing a seven-figure, multi-album deal with Epic Records.
Authorities arrested Shmurda in late 2014 after he left a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall, only days after he performed Hot Boy for a national television audience on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Investigators found two handguns and a small amount of crack cocaine in a car in which he was riding, authorities said.
Shmurda was denied parole in September, in part for disciplinary actions taken against him while incarcerated, and subsequently ordered to his maximum sentence until Dec. 21, 2021.
He is currently incarcerated at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, according to the Department of Corrections inmate database.
A review by the Department of Corrections later restored his credit for good behavior.
