Ackquille Jean Pollard : Bobby Shmurda - Out

In December 2014, 14 members of GS9 were charged in a 69-count indictment, which included murder, attempted murder, drugs, weapons, and other crimes. Bobby Shmurda was declared the “driving force” behind the gang. Shmurda is out after he accepted a 7 year plea deal. "My lawyer told me we don’t want to go to court in Manhattan with these white people ..."
Bobby Shmurda faced at least 25 years on conspiracy charges for running a gang. Pollard is best known for the hit song "Hot Nigga". He also popularized a dance craze called the “Shmoney dance”. On December 17, 2014, New York City Police arrested Pollard and charged him with conspiracy to commit murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment. After pleading not guilty, he failed to post $2m bond and was incarcerated while awaiting trial.
Cops said Shmurda was the boss of GS9, the name of his label, as they dealt crack and waged a deadly battle with rival gangs for territory. Shmurda's songs and videos were "almost like a real-life document of what they were doing on the street." In "Hot Nigga", Shmurda rapped that "I been selling crack since like the fifth grade" because "Jaja taught me".
Rashid Derissant shot and killed a 19-year-old rival in 2013. He then tried to kill three others in the same incident. Shmurda also rapped about his crew's past and future murders. A gangster with ties to Shmurda was jailed for 98 years for conspiracy, murder and assault. Rashid Derissant, 24, was found guilty of gang-related charges.

During one of his court appearances, Shurmda wore a pair of $500 shoes.
