Bobby Shmurda has been incarcerated since December 2014, the same year he broke out as a star. The Brooklyn rapper was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession.
Other members of his GS9 gang/record label were also hit with heavy sentences. Rowdy Rebel, his close friend and fellow rapper, was hit with seven years in prison but avoided 12 years as Bobby agreed to do seven years so Rowdy could get less.

According to TMZ, Bobby is already making plans for what he will do once he is finally released after almost seven years. He will reportedly be spending time with his family, have an “intimate dinner” with them, and also record new music at the studio as fans have been waiting for this for years.
