Bobby Shmurda Pleads Not Guilty To Gun & Drug Charges

Published: Thursday 18th Dec 2014 by David


Hip Hop newbie Bobby Shmurda may have seen his career come to an untimely demise today, seemingly cut short as he faces the heavy hand of law following claims he is part of a street gang behind several shootings linked to a drugs turf war.

Bad news for the ‘Hot‘ new rapper below…

Best known for the smash hit single ‘Hot Boy’, Shmurda was named in an indictment charging he and more than 15 others linked to him with crimes that range from murder to drug dealing.

Yesterday morning, he was arrested for conspiracy, reckless endangerment and gun possession after leaving a  recording studio in midtown Manhattan, accused of firing a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop earlier this year.

His plea? Not guilty, held on $2 million bail at a hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan as his attorney slammed the legal drama with:

Does it make sense that he would resort to committing crimes when he has the world in the palm of his hand? It’s ridiculous.

Billboard adds:

The evidence includes several recorded phone conversations, including some between Pollard and gang members serving time on Rikers Island, the indictment says. The gang used code words, referring to firearms as “tone” and “socks,” narcotics as “crills,” and shootings as “sun tan,” it says.

During a conversation on April 28, Pollard bragged, “I am two socks Bobby right now,” the indictment says.

A “Hot Boy” video posted on YouTube in August has been viewed tens of millions of times, and Pollard performed the song for a national television audience this month on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“My music is straight facts,” Pollard recently told New York magazine. “There are a lot of gangsters in my ‘hood.”

Pollard’s criminal history included two arrests for gun and drug possession, authorities said.

    I knew it wouldn’t end well for this one hit wonder when I saw that YouTube video of him acting like a c*** and dancing on tables for LA Reid and other execs. Dummy.

    To be Young, Gifted and Black…

    Did they arrest that fiiiiine light skin guy just behind him on the pic? What’s his name? Dang, with a face like that, the guy should be a model or an actor on the CW.

    This young boys should know by now, when you get mainstream for rapping about catching bodies, it’s all eyes on you until you’re busted. Don’t get fooled by Drake, Rihanna and other squeaky clean mainstream acts.

    Dej Loaf, watch yourself girl or you’re next.
