It’s been two months since Acquille Pollard AKA Bobby Shmurda, has been in jail, and the Brooklyn rapper says he feels abandoned by his own record label, Epic records.
A part of a 101-count indictment, city prosecutors arrested Pollard for what they claim to be his role as the “driving force” and “organizing figure” behind the street gang known as GS9, an offshoot of the Crips.
He is also facing charges for gun possession.
In an interview from the detention complex, Shmurda, 20, said,
“When I got locked up, I thought they were going to come for me, but they never came.”
Epic records, who wooed Shmurda about six months ago mainly because of his viral hit, Hot Boy, has now distanced itself from the jailed rapper.
Epic has even declining pleas from music industry figures like 50 Cent, to help the rapper get out.
If released on the $2 million bail, Shmurda says,
“I’m going to try my best to go back on the deal…If not, I’ll give them their music and bounce.”
