Rowdy Rebel’s Prison Release

Rebel spent nearly five years behind bars. However, he finally tasted freedom this week after getting released from Collins Correctional Facility.

The Brooklyn rapper had been incarcerated since 2016 when he agreed to plead guilty to one count of third-degree conspiracy and one count of weapons possession. He’ll be under community supervision until December 15, 2025 at the latest. Rowdy Rebel burst onto the scene as part of Bobby Shmurda’s GS9 collective. The group broke out in 2014 with “Shmoney Dance” and “Hot N—a.” Rowdy Rebel and Bobby Shmurda signed deals with Epic Records, who released the rappers’ collaborative “Computers.” In December 2014, the rappers and other GS9 members were arrested and accused of operating a violent street gang.

One year from now, he will be released from federal prison. He’s been behind bars since 2014 when he was charged with conspiracy to murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment; Shmurda pleaded guilty in 2016 and received time served for the two years he spent awaiting trial but was denied parole earlier this year.
