If you haven’t heard of Bobby Shmurda, don’t feel too bad. He has only been famous for all of five minutes. His hit song “Hot N*gga” went viral after his video depicting the “Shmoney dance” was released. He is an American rapper from Brooklyn signed to Epic Records. His most famous song to date peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Court documents reveal that carelessness got him into some very big trouble.

They say that cops spotted Bobby showing off a weapon in an apartment building, and when they went to check it out, he tried to hide it in a couch. When the police located the 9mm Glock pistol, they also found a magazine that had 14 rounds. In the state of New York, that is not a good look.

He was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon, punishable by up to 15 years in prison as well as conspiracy to commit murder, and reckless endangerment. He ended up pleading guilty in 2016 to one count of third-degree conspiracy and one count of weapons possession and was sentenced to seven years in prison. This was reduced to five years due to the two years he served while awaiting trial. His attorney is hopeful that with good behavior he will be out in about 3 and a half years.

So now you know who this guy is, and we wish him the best of luck. In the meantime, check out the Shmurda dance and play his catchy tune. Bobby Shmurda was born in Florida and has one older brother. He was barely one year old when his family moved from Florida to Brooklyn, New York due to his father’s incarceration. Unfortunately Shmurda started getting into trouble at a very early age and spent 15 months in a detention center on a gun change. Shmurda began his rap career at the age of 10.
