Bobby Shmurda took to his social media to vent about the rapper-to-producer business. He blames it on greed.
Since his release from prison, Bobby Shmurda’s album has been highly-anticipated. Yesterday he took to social media to express his frustrations and explained why his album is stalled. He cited overcharging from producers as the biggest current obstacle for his album release. He stated on a live video shared on Facebook:
“These producers is giving me the hardest time right now, I never seen no sh*t like this before. I remember these — it can’t be that bad outside, my n*gga. I done made over half a million for the year, can’t be that bad outside. I’m trying to drop my project, but these n*gga is asking me clearances and these f*ckin’ producers are asking for some crazy sh*t. I don’t know what rumors is going around, they think, ‘Oh Bobby just droppin’ bags, this, that, whatever.’ Givin’ no n*ggas $10,000, $8,000 for no f*ckin’ producer.”
On social media, fans were split on agreeing with Bobby about producers being greedy with prices for beats. On Twitter one user identified as @OGxTP felt that artists like Schmurda make it hard for producers in hip hop. He tweeted:
“That Bobby Shmurda shit is exactly why producers be skeptical to work with independent artists.”
Another user on Twitter identified as @C75Live had an interesting solution that could be mutually beneficial for rappers and producers. He tweeted:
“So Bobby Shmurda can’t find beats cos they’re too expensive? I know a gang of producers that will make fire for a fraction of 10k.”
Dude just sounds unwilling to do legwork and doesn’t know how the business works ”
Hopefully, all parties involved can find some common ground so Bobby can give fans what they’ve been waiting for.
Bobby Shmurda’s Dancing
Seeing Bobby Schmurda angrily ranting about being overcharged by producers is a major shift from how he is usually depicted on social media.
Since his release, he has sparked a dance revolution for rappers and fans; recently he started a Tik Tok challenge that was co-signed by fellow NYC rapper Cardi B.
Since his release in February 2021, Bobby Shmurda has been bullied online for what some deem questionable dance moves. The hip gyrations have people wondering what happened to the Brooklyn rapper, but one of his NYC rap friends is defending him.
Cardi B took to her Twitter to remind fans not to disrespect Bobby Shmurda and his dance moves. According to Cardi, Bobby never changed in prison whenever she visited a friend and heard stories about the rapper:
“Y’all really be trying Bobby cause he be dancing and no lie when I used to do visits in Rikers, Bobby & Rowdy were always in OBC solitary confinement cause they was really getting it rockin. Them boys ain’t punked out in jail really stood on their shit unlike a lot of rappers,” Cardi said.
