After months of speculation, Bobby Shmurda is set to be released from prison on Tuesday.
The “Shmoney Dance” rapper was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2016 after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy and weapons possession charges as part of a plea deal. At the time, he had already spent two years in prison in lieu of a $2 million bond.
His arrest in December 2014 was part of a major police takedown of his neighborhood crew, GS9. Shmurda alleged in court the day of the sentencing that his attorney, Alex Spiro, “forced” him to take the plea deal, but the judge declined to have the case adjourned.
However, in January, law enforcement sources said the Department of Corrections bumped up his release from New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility to Feb. 23, which is 10 months early than his previously scheduled release, after evaluating his “behavior and participation in prison programs.”
Shmurda, real name Ackquille Jean Pollard, will have to meet regularly with his parole officer as he’ll reportedly be on parole until 2026.
The “Hot Boy” rapper reportedly wants to just spend some quality time with family and eat good food. Shmurda’s mother, Leslie Pollard, told TMZ the 26-year-old wants to enjoy an “intimate dinner” and then get back to his first passion: music.
Leslie says she’s counting down the hours until her son’s release. Bobby’s also excited, to say the least. He posted a message on social media to his fans thanking them for their support.

Rumor has it Bobby may already be out, despite reports of a Tuesday release date. Migos rapper Quavo has already announced he’ll be picking Shmurda up from prison. “I’m going to get my guy,” Quavo told Billboard. “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.”
