Bobby Shmurda came on to the scene out of nowhere with a video for the hit song, “Hot Nigga” produced by hit-maker, Jahlil Beats. Black Twitter went wild over his “Shmoney Dance” and mixed it with other hit songs and the phrase “JUST A WEEK AGO” could remind one of Dave Chappelle’s, “I’m Rick James, bitch,” the way it was mimicked and applied to many life situations. If you listened to the lyrics, Bobby Shmurda was speaking about the hard life of a crack dealer, grinding to make ends meet. It turns out that Bobby and his GS9 affiliates weren’t just rapping about the goon life. Members, including their leader Bobby Shmurda were arrested at Quad Studios last night for gun possession and drug trafficking.
Details are sketchy at the moment, but there are pictures of GS9 being taken out of the studio in midtown Manhattan. It turns out that they have been targeted in a long running investigation into a drug trafficking operation and string of shootings in New York City. Bobby Shmurda, 20, (born Ackquille Pollard) and his band mate Rowdy Rebel (born Chad Marshal) were arrested on Wednesday night along with other. Handguns were found in the studio. Bobby has two similar arrests already in his history.
What does this mean for Bobby Shmurda and GS9? Bobby recently released his debut album and “Hot Nigga (changed to ‘Hot Boy’ for radio)” was a certified hit record in the streets and beyond. Will Bobby have to sit for a minute. Will one of his associates step up and eat the charges so he can stay out and keep shining? Only time will tell.
