Bobby Shmurda Talks Jail, Stabbing Rumors, Criminal Case in Billboard Interview
In his first interview since his Dec. 17 arrest, Shmurda describes his time in jail as “survival of the fittest” and that he was “thugging it out.” Nevertheless, he denied reports that he was stabbed during a fight inside. “It's nothing but rumors, man. I'm good. Everybody knows I'm good,” he said. “I'm chillin’.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the 'Hot N----' rhymer gave an update on the status of his bail package. He also accuses the DA of being bias and hating on him because of his success.
Read a few excerpts below:
Your mother and your lawyer are working hard to get you out on bail. Are you hopeful about that?
Uhhh...We're trying, but right now I think the DA and the judge and everyone in the court is being biased. It's so crazy. The favoritism, yeah. They don't have no evidence, no nothing on me for the bill to be so high. I haven't been out for a year, I haven't been around for a year. So I didn't make two million dollars! [Laughs] They gave me a bill they know I can't pay. We can pay the 10 percent. And we tried to pay the 10 percent and they told us collateral. And every time we go for bail, it's something new.
Your last hearing was Jan. 29. What were you thinking in court?
When I see the judge and the DA, I just see a bunch of people [who are] trying to take my life away for being blessed. That's what I look at when I look at them. It looks like a bunch of haters.
Do you have a message for your fans?
Yeah. Keep your head up. Everybody goes through tough times and good times. You know what, tough times don't last forever. I say, God makes his toughest battles for his strongest soldiers.
