Despite his seven-year sentence, Shmurda has stayed culturally significant. While before his incarceration, he didn’t release much music, Bobby quickly became one of New York’s most promising rappers, injecting new energy into the music at the time. He got acquainted to the super group Migos and teased their collaborative mixtape, ShMigo, which was never released. There is a new expectation that the album will actually come because Quavo will be there to pick him up when Bobby gets released from prison tomorrow,
“I’m going to get my guy,” Huncho said. “I’m personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I’m bout to go get him. I’m gonna let him show you how I’m gonna pick him up, yessir.”-said Quavo in an exclusive new interview with Billboard

In December 2014, Shmurda, along with some of his GS9 fellow members, was arrested, including rapper Rowdy Rebel on murder plot, gun possession and faultless extinction charges. He eventually entered into a plea agreement for a seven year term on charges of a 4th grade conspiracy and 2nd degree unlawful gun possession. In September 2020 too, the rapper “Hot N*gga” was denied parole.
