Bobby Shmurda has just released his first post-prison interview, commenting about his time spent inside the lockup and his career’s turning point, getting series about his art.
Interviewed by GQ, Bobby describes a moment in 2016 to be the lowest point and also his reckoning. The GS9 rapper opens up about the moment he got a letter from a fan that year and how it gave him the needed push to get back into music. Bobby narrated the whole event stating, “A six-year-old girl wrote to me; she said I was her favorite rapper… That just let me know the kids are watching me, and I have to be a role model.” He cited that he did not care too much for his music until he went to jail and saw how loyal his fans were, “I can’t name a week that I didn’t see at least 10 [pieces] of fan mail, throughout the whole bid.”
Bobbly also commented on his time in prison, stating, “going to prison immediately after blowing up made [him] appreciate just how fortunate he was to have achieved rap stardom.” In the interview, he also experienced a chat he had with the late Nipsey Hussle, talking about real estate and financial freedom. Bobby remembered the last conversation he had with Hussle just a month before his sudden passing saying, “I only had four or five conversations with cousin. His mind was different. He was saying all the things we were going to do when I got out.”
After his Popular release from Prison, Bobby Shmurda has lots of Collabs up his sleeves, with Collab with Migos for Culture III being the most notable one. Shmurda-Pop Smoke collab is also due for fans, which was never released.
