The Weirdest Moments in Jail
Bobby Shmurda served six years in prison for conspiracy to murder and possession of firearms before being freed more than a year ago. In 2014, the rapper, whose actual name is Ackquille Pollard, was given a six-year term for possessing guns and conspiring to murder. At the moment, the globe was being rocked by his wildly popular track “Hot N—a.”
The Brooklyn-based rapper sat down with “Variety” and described some of the wackiest things he did while inside bars to give readers a glimpse into his experience in the system. He vacillated between “the riots or the s*x on the visits,” the latter of which he claimed was only oral s*x, when asked what stood out to him the most.
Shmurda replied, “I mean, sometimes.” About being caught by the guards, he added, “some of them wouldn’t care, they’d be like [shrugs]. Some would be like [in deep voice], ‘Ackquille Pollard! Chill, hold it down, son! What the f*ck are you doing?! This girl right here, both of y’all get the fuck out!’”
Bobby Shmurda is upfront about staying away from s*x. He said on Twitter in November that he required *ex treatment and demanded to be stopped. The rapper claimed in an interview the following month that he began practicing celibacy for “like a month” after getting a new phone and discarding his old one.
Bobby Made the Killers Dance
Bobby smiled and said, Everywhere. I made killers dance. I make everybody dance with everybody. ’ll play all types of music: Spanish music, pop music, Jamaican music. I do everything but country and rock. I can’t really get into country and rock too much. Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, jazz, I like.”
Shmurda confessed to Variety that he occasionally felt defeated in incarcerated. “All the times when I was fighting police, that’s when I felt defeated. I didn’t feel defeated… well, defeated, yeah,” he recalled. “Because when I fight police, I used to be on some ‘fuck everything’ shit. When someone makes me errrr, I want to hurt somebody. Those days, yeah, I felt defeated.”
Bobby confessed that not all times were awful in prison. He recalled using marijuana since he “ain’t got nothing better to do” and occasionally laughing with others. Additionally, he discussed his stay in the psychiatric institution when he was 16 years old. He stated:
“I was going to the doctor and evaluations from second grade until I was 16. ADHD, ADD. They tried to put me on pills but my mom’s West Indian, so they not with none of that shit. “ He needs an ass whooping, sit him down.” After that, I started smoking weed — it’s crazy, but it calmed me down. When I smoke weed, I’m like this. [Sits still.] If I don’t smoke weed.
I’m like “AHHH!” Tasmanian [devil]. The last time I’ve been to the psych ward was 16 or 17. I tried to burn the place down because security didn’t want to let me out. I was in juvenile and they wouldn’t let me out. These were some big motherfuckers. Every time the needle came out, I shut the fuck up. “I’m sorry!”
Bobby Maintained His Career
Six years in prison is a very long time and inevitably leads to failure. However, Bobby Shmurda’s situation has been unique. If we set aside his witty claims about serving time in gala jail, it’s important to notice that the rapper was able to maintain his profession. For instance, after his release, he finished his contract with Epic Records and entered the studio right away.
Since then, he has released the singles “No Time to Sleep,” “Shmoney,” “They Don’t Know,” and most recently, “Gettin’ Em Back”; he also has a new EP and full-length album planned.
In terms of his commercial success, Bobby Shmurda is regarded as the father of Brooklyn drill music. His single “Hot Nigga,” which peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, catapulted him to international recognition in 2014. Shmurda was freed in Kings County, New York, in February 2021 under the supervision of neighbors. He will be on parole until February 23, 2026, when his whole sentence will expire.
Currently, Bobby Shmurda has more than 5.7 million Instagram followers. If you didn’t already know, Bobby’s father has been imprisoned since before Bobby was even born. Shmurda stated, “We’re just praying to hear some good news.” Currently, Shmurda is focused on supporting his father as he attempts to appeal his 120-year sentence for “some shit he ain’t do.” He has been disabled for 27 years, ever since I was born.
