Fans suffered one of the biggest Hip Hop scares of a this generation after rumors surfaced that Bobby Shmurda was stabbed to death by his cellmate at Rikers Island. Huzlers can be credited for putting the story out there. It must be noted Huzlers bills itself as the “most notorious urban satirical entertainment website with the most shocking headlines and articles.” Bobby was alive and well when he spoke to Billboard in a recent interview. He addressed rumors of his alleged shanking.
“It’s nothing but rumors, man,” he told Billboard. I’m good. Everybody knows I’m good. I’m chilling. We over here — we over here thugging it out, man. [Laughs].”
Bobby’s life is still threatened at this point in his career. The 20-year-old Brooklyn native is facing up to 40 years in prison on charges of conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia.
Bobby has attempted to regain his freedom by posting bail but to no avail.
Bobby Shmurda’s attorney Kenneth Montgomery announced Friday, Jan. 30 his client posted $2 million bail. But that bail package has since been withdrawn, according to the New York Times.
“It’s our understanding that the suretor has withdrawn and that no hearing is currently scheduled,” Katie Cornell, a spokeswoman for the office of the special narcotics prosecutor for New York City, told the NY Times.
Montgomery told the Times him and Bobby’s management were trying to put together a “new bond application.”
“We’re hoping to get it done within the next week,” he said.
Bobby and his attorney Kenneth Montgomery initally tapped the services of celebrity bail bondsman Ira Judelson to arrange his release. NYC reportedly had up to 72 hours review the bail package.
“If the city is playing fair, there will be no need for a hearing,” Montgomery said, according to the NY Times.
Bobby now has to sit in jail until his upcoming April 22 court hearing.
“When I see the judge and the DA, I just see a bunch of people [who are] trying to take my life away for being blessed,” Bobby told Billboard. “That’s what I look at when I look at them. It looks like a bunch of haters.”
Bobby Shmurda and GS9 were arrested Dec. 17 after a recording session at Quad Studio. Their arrests follow a long-term investigation by the NYPD for their suspected involvement in gang-related shootings and drug trafficking in NYC, according to the New York Daily News. Police reportedly seized 21 guns during their investigation, 10 of them during the crew’s highly publicized arrests.
