Bobby Shmurda Explains ‘Selling Crack Since The 5th Grade’ Line In ‘Hot N*gga’



Bobby Shmurda can owe his fast rise success to his “Hot N*gga” music video and, of course, the infamous “Shmoney Dance.”

But one of Shmurda’s lines that stuck out on the track was “I been selling crack since the fifth grade.”



It is certainly a cause for alarm when a 10-year-old kid is selling drugs at an early age. But it is also a reality for many youths living in an economically deprived urban environment.

Shmurda, who hails from East Flatbush, Brooklyn, explained the line in question during an interview with Village Voice.

“…I was never chilling with kids my age,” the 20-year-old Brooklynite said. “I was chilling with older kids. In school, I was always bad. I was either in the suspension room or with the deans and them and they was talking to me all day. I was one of those kids. When I leave school, I was hanging with the older dudes. I was hardheaded. A lot of people tried to tell me to stay out of it, but I wanted to do it myself. It was fun money. Like, I could go buy $100 of weed, shoes, without asking nobody.”

Shmurda said catching a charge was a wake-up call for him. Now, he focuses on music as his main hustle. Shmurda recently signed a recording contract with Epic Records. There is certainly no reason for him to go back to the streets.
