Born on August 4, 1994, Bobby Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, is a famous rapper from the United States. He and another rapper, Rowdy Rebel, are known for starting Brooklyn drill music, a type of rap. Bobby became really famous in 2014 because of his song “Hot Nigga,” which was one of the top songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
This hit song helped him get a music deal with Epic Records. In November 2014, he released his first short album, called “Shmurda She Wrote.”
But in December 2014, police in New York City arrested Bobby and some of his friends from the GS9 music group. They were accused of planning violence, having illegal weapons, and being dangerously reckless.

Bobby Shmurda Early Life
Ackquille Pollard, who is also known as Bobby Shmurda, was born in Miami, Florida. His mom is African-American, and his dad is from Jamaica. His mom moved to East Flatbush in New York from Florida after his dad went to jail.
While living in Brooklyn, Pollard had some problems with the law. He spent fifteen months in a detention center because he didn’t follow the rules of his probation, and he was once arrested for having a g*n, but those charges were dropped later.
In 2014, the police said that Pollard was the leader of a group called “GS9.” This group often fought with other gangs, was involved in sh00tings and murders, and sold d*ugs in the area from Kings Highway to East Flatbush.
Bobby Shmurda Criminal Conviction
Bobby Shmurda, a rapper, got into serious legal trouble in 2014. On June 3, he was caught with a g*n and arrested. Police said he tried to hide it on a couch when they came to check. He was released after paying $10,000.
Later, on December 17, he was arrested again. This time for being part of a gang and having d*ugs and g*ns. He said he was not guilty, but his bail was set at $2 million. The police had been watching his gang because they were involved in murders and sh00tings.
Shmurda was a key member of a gang known as GS9. They sold d*ugs and fought with other gangs. He could have been in jail for 8 to 25 years for this.
The head of the NYPD unit, James Essig, said Shmurda’s music and videos showed what his gang was doing. In one song, “Hot Nigga,” he talked about selling d*ugs since he was young and about his gang’s violent actions. Although he said in interviews that his lyrics were about his real life, a court decided that song lyrics can’t be used in trial unless they are directly linked to a crime.
While in jail, Shmurda was in a fight that may have been part of a gang rivalry. He and his ex-girlfriend were caught trying to bring a knife into the jail. They were charged with bringing in illegal items and having a weapon, which could add seven more years to his sentence. Shmurda went to court for these new charges and the earlier ones. He and his ex-girlfriend said they were not guilty of the new charges, but Shmurda still faced up to 25 years for the d*ug and g*n charges.
