Rapper Bobby Shmurda will remain in prison for the remainder of his sentence until December 11, 2021, the end of his seven-year sentence, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

When he got in front of the Parole Board in September, Shmurda claimed he was a changed man that was no longer impulsive and could walk away from a fight unlike in the past.

Despite his pleas, it appears that Shmurda did not impress the board, which pointed towards his many violations while incarcerated over the last six years.

“Following his Sept. 15, 2020 interview with the Board of Parole, Ackquille Pollard was denied release and given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021,” a spokesperson from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told Complex in September.

According to TMZ, the rapper claimed that he is a man who now makes calculated decisions and is no longer prone to violence.

Shmurda also outlined his plans upon leaving, saying he wanted to resume his career in the entertainment industry while also embarking on projects to help young people in crime ridden communities.

Shmurda also said that he now sees himself as a “leader” rather than a follower. Additionally, he wants to get a high school G.E.D. once he walks out of prison.

The rapper has been in jail since December 2014 in a case where more than 15 defendants were charged with various crimes, including murder, attempted murder and drug dealing.

The rapper was originally charged with conspiracy to commit murder and several weapons and drug charges associated with gangs.

According to the plea deal he took, Shmurda agreed to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon charges. The other charges were dismissed, and he was sentenced to seven years in prison and five years probation.
