US rapper Bobby Shmurda, born Ackquille Pollard, was released from prison on Tuesday, February 24, after six years behind bars.
He was arrested back in 2014 on weapons and conspiracy charges and sentenced to seven years after taking a plea deal.
Migos rapper Quavo had earlier revealed that he was to pick Shmurda from New York’s Clinton Correction Facility and true to his word, he did.
In a video shared by Quavo on Instagram, Shmurda could be seen alighting a private jet clad in all black with a mask in the same colour.
The 26-year-old rapper was also holding a black briefcase in his left hand and this made many believe that he had transitioned back into his rapper lifestyle.
“Did six and didn’t switch. Welcome home! @realbobbyshurdags9,” Quavo wrote on Instagram alongside the video.
Migos were working on a joint album with Shmurda before his arrest and the album now appears to be back on track.
Shmurda was released a year early on good behaviour and participating in prison programs.
His most recent post on Instagram showed him at a party at home next to four children and he captioned the post: “My God babies.”
Shmurda early success
The young rapper became a hit after many of his songs, including Shmoney Dance, went viral on social media.
His debut hit, Hot Boy, garnered nearly 700 million views on Youtube.
Shmurda was on his way to becoming a legend in the game and will be hoping to get back to his best as soon as he can.
It is still yet a mystery when he will release new music, but one thing is for sure, he is definitely back to living large.
Some months ago, Legit.ng reported that Bobby Shmurda joined fans to jubilate following rumours that he might be released from prison.
The star’s fans thought that his parole hearing would take place on Tuesday, August 4, 2020. – The rapper’s mother, Leslie Pollard, confirmed that the hearing was rescheduled.
