Rapper Bobby Shmurda (26) is finally a free man. The Hot Boy hitmaker, real name Ackquille Pollard, was released on Tuesday from New York’s infamous Clinton Correctional Facility.
His release comes ten months earlier than expected. Shmurda will be under parole supervision for the next 5 years until 23 February 2026, TMZ reported.
The rapper got his conditional release date bumped up by the prison’s Time Allowance Committee, which made the call after reviewing his behavior and his participation in prison programs.
It is evident he wasn’t much of a troublemaker in prison.
Bobby was arrested in December 2014 and initially sentenced to 6 to 7 years in prison after he made a plea deal in September 2016 to charges of weapon possession. He was given credit for around two years of time served before official sentencing.
While in prison Bobby could not really stay out of trouble as he racked up 11 violations, which included drug possession, having a shank and was involved in physical fights as well.
However, it seems he gave it much thought and decided to turn his life around and be a good boy which scored him the much needed early release.
