Instead of having his long-standing case go to court, Bobby Shmurda recently took a plea deal for a seven-year prison sentence, with charges of 4th-degree murder conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession.
The Brooklyn rapper revealed to Complex that he did it for his fellow GS9 crew member Rowdy Rebel.
“I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12. They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven, too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs,” he said.
In 2014, the two stars, along with other members of the GS9 crew, were charged with conspiracy, gun, and drug violations. Despite having time served, Bobby believes he would’ve had a better chance fighting the case out on bail.
“If we made bail I would’ve beat the case. We look guilty in these orange jumpsuits. If you put Al Sharpton in an orange jumpsuit and accuse him of having a gun, he’s going to be found guilty. They just look at our skin color, and look at where we’re from. I didn’t get caught with anything on me and the cops lied, saying they seen me with a gun in my hand,” he explained.
Despite being in jail, Rowdy and Bobby have remained up to date on the hottest rappers in New York with Rowdy saying, “We wish them the best. Shout out to Young M.A, Desiigner, A Boogie, all of these guys. I respect their game, I respect their movement, I respect what they’re doing for their family and friends.”
