Bobby Shmurda’s legal woes continue. The “Hot Boy” has lost another bid to receive bail ahead of his drug-dealing and weapons-possession trial.

According to Page Six, Shmurda’s new lawyer Alex Spiro appeared in court on Monday and asked for his client to be released until his trial on Feb. 22. Shmurda has been incarcerated since his arrest in December, when the judge set his bail at $2 million.

Special Narcotics Prosecutor Nigel Farinha argued that he was a flight risk because of his out-of-state connections in Florida, as well as his net worth of half-a-million dollars. The judge agreed, so Shmurda will remain in jail until his trial.

The 21-year-old rapper and multiple members of his GS9 crew were originally arrested in connection with suspected murder of a rival, as well as shooting firearms recklessly. He has been denied bail four times already, and was reportedly given extra charges after his girlfriend tried to sneak a shank to him behind bars.

Shmurda faces up to 25 years in prison for conspiracy, reckless endangerment, and gun possession.

In an interview with “Ebro in the Morning” in February, he denied reports that he was in possession of an arsenal of weapons. “That shit is not true,” said Shmurda. “The cops been out for me for forever, man. They been trying to slay me for forever, but they never catch me with nothing.”



  1. It’s a damn shame that he has been locked up all this time. It’s no secret that he was dealing illegal drugs and moving guns. That’s how he is able to afford all that radio time. It cost alot to get to where he at, and now the legal system has one of our soldiers locked just because he making major money. That is so horrible and this entire situation is proof that we live in a country that does everything possible to keep young black men locked up. Numbers don’t lie, and we are in a trap. Same goes for Gucci Main and Offset of Migos. This is so horrible and the time is now for us as a people to stand up and say no more to all this misery and enslavement of our generation. Self defense sometimes means taking precautions to eliminate the enemy before they are able to keep no swaggin.
