   Famous rapper Bobby Shmurda, most known for his songs “Shmurda Dance” and “Hot Boy”, has been released from prison after more than six years. He was released ten months early on Feb. 23 2021, instead of the initial maximum time of Dec. 11 2021, due to good behavior

   He was released from Clinton Correctional Facility, N.Y., and “will be under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on Feb. 23 2026” according to the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (NYS DOCCS) in a statement given to the Insider. It means he will be under probation in Brooklyn (Kings County) until Feb. 23, 2026.

   Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, was originally arrested in New York in December 2014, where investigators said they found crack cocaine and two handguns in the car he was riding in. They sentenced him to seven years in prison in 2016 after he pleaded guilty to weapons possession and conspiracy charges.

   At the time of Bobby Shmurda’s arrest, he had been working on several different collaborative pieces, most notably a teased collaboration with the Migos. Quavo of the Migos followed this with a tweet in 2019, adding more fuel to the fire. Quavo also picked Shmurda up from prison after his release. Pop Smoke, who was killed in 2020, also claimed to have unreleased collaborations with Shmurda. Rapper Rowdy Rebel, who has collaborated with Shmurda several times, has talked about attending the annual New York concert Summer Jam with Shmurda. Before that happens, he will be spending much-needed time with his family.
