Brooklyn rapper, Ackquille Pollard, popularly known as Bobby Shmurda, has been denied parole from the New York State prison last week.
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 15th. Following that interview, Pollard was denied release. Pollard was given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021.
The 26-year-old rapper has been serving time since December 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 that he was forced to take the sentence.
“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 fuck everything up. I got two years, 2020″.
