Bobby Shmurda was set for conditional release from Clinton Correctional Facility in New York early on Tuesday morning. Shmurda’s official sentence ends Feb. 23, 2026, and until then he will be under community supervision, USA Today reports.
Shmurda, born Ackquille Pollard, told Billboard that he was going to be picked up by rapper Quavo, who also told the publication about his plans.
"I'm going to get my guy," said Quavo. "I'm personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I'm bout to go get him. I'm gonna let him show you how I'm gonna pick him up, yessir."
Shmurda posted a thank you to his fans in an Instagram story on Monday for "remaining loyal."
"I love you all and look forward to seeing you all soon," he said. He also archived all of his Instagram posts and shared a clip from the film Kings of New York, the only thing on his page for now.
The rapper was arrested in 2014 on gang conspiracy and drug and gun charges, right after a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. When his car was searched, officers found two handguns and some crack cocaine.
Though he originally plead not guilty to all charges, according to Complex, in 2016, Shmurda and co-defendant Nicholas McCoy plead guilty to fourth-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and second-degree criminal weapons possession. Shmurda says he did it to help his friend Rowdy Rebel.
"I did it for Rowdy," said Shmurda at the time. "They offered me five [years] and offered Rowdy 12. They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven, too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawg."
