New York rapper Bobby Shmurda won’t be getting out of prison early and now we know why. The New York rapper was sentenced to five years for conspiracy and weapons possession in 2016, and was recently denied parole.
Bobby Shmurda Won’t Get Out Until 2021
At his last parole hearing, Shmurda — now 26 years old — testified that he’s a changed man and that he’s become a leader instead of a follower while serving his time. The parole board, however, cited the trouble Shmurda has gotten into since he’s been locked up, including the time he got caught with a weapon behind bars.
Young Thug and Quavo’s Bobby Shmurda Support
In August 2020, Atlanta rap star Young Thug hit up his Instagram page to show his support for both Bobby and fellow hip-hop artist Rowdy Rebel. The heartfelt shout-out inspired Migos’ Quavo to also promise the rap artists could look forward to a collaboration from him upon their release.
“When they get out I fasho got some for em.. real niggas are still on earth. Rewards don’t come with keeping it real but in this case IT DOES. Charlemagne was right for once” -Young Thug’s Instagram
“My brothas Kno What’s Up Wit Me Wen They Touch SHMIGO! ??” -Quavo

In early August 2020, Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz went online with a major shout-out for Bobby. Boosie also shared his issues with people not taking time to acknowledge Shmurda through his bid.
