Bobby Shmurda fans were excited at the possibility of the rapper being home but his parole hearing got delayed. 

Complex reports it’s rescheduled to September 14, and it’s not clear why. Bobby won’t be a “free man” on that day, the Board of Parole has up to two weeks from the date of the hearing to make a decision. The latest possible date he could be released is December 11, 2021. 

He’s been locked up for six years and has big plans when he’s free. He’s been working on music behind bars, according to “Mama Shmurda,” Leslie Pollard, and will release it with his label Epic Records. Leslie also said that her son wants to mentor at-risk youth. Bobby wants to make sure the future generation doesn’t follow in his footsteps. 

He’s also planning on dropping a documentary about his life. Pollard told the TMZ she wants her son’s documentary to be used as an educational tool for troubled youth. 

The “Hot N*gga” rapper was arrested in 2014 on numerous charges which include conspiracy to commit murder and weapons and drug charges associated with GS9. Back in 2016, Bobby Shmurda plead guilty to murder conspiracy charges and accepted a 7-year deal that included time served. In an interview that same year, Bobby explained why he took a longer sentence. His answer was due to loyalty.

“I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12. They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs.”
