Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda (real name Ackquille Pollard) was denied parole from New York State prison last week, LailasNews has learned.
He is set to remain behind bars until the end of next year.
New York State’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision said that the rapper, had an interview with the Board of Parole on September 15. Following that interview, Pollard was denied release. Pollard was “given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021,” the Corrections Department said.
The “Hot N—a” rapper has been serving time since Dec. 2014, when he was initially charged with conspiracy to murder, weapons possession and reckless endangerment.
He was sentenced to seven years in prison after accepting a deal to plead guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession.
The Manhattan Supreme Court sentencing was characterized by drama, with Pollard reportedly saying,
“I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence. I was forced by my attorney to take this plea.”
Back in 2018, Shmurda dialed into This is 50 for a phone interview where he spoke about his possible release in 2020.
“When I get out, we’re going to f— everything up. I got two years, 2020,” the 26-year-old rapper said at the time. “You know how that sh– goes. I like to see real n—as doing their thing with more constructive sh–. I hope a lot of motherf—ers learn from me.”
