American rapper Ackquille Jean Pollard, popularly known as Bobby Shmurda, is finally being released from prison. Fans of the rapper are losing their minds.
Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2016 after pleading guilty to conspiracy and possession of weapons. He was arrested alongside his friend and fellow rapper, Rowdy Rebel, who was released last month.
In September 2020, he suffered a setback after a judge denied him parole. He was, instead, given a new maximum sentence expiration date on December 11, 2021.
Last month, Bobby Shmurda was granted conditional release from the Department of Corrections, which is now set to take place on February 23, 2021.
Bobby Shmurda also returned to Instagram. He shared a clip from the opening scene of Christopher Walken's "King Of New York" with the following caption:
"How the f*ck y'all forgot about me?"
