Today (Aug. 4) is the birthday of a Brooklynite who's supposed to be a star right now. We're talking about Bobby Shmurda, who's still locked up in New York City's Rikers Island as he turns the legal age of 21.
After seven months in jail, Bobby Shmurda finally has a hero who'll rescue him from Rikers Island Correctional Facility in New York. He's not Sha Money XL or 50 Cent. He's none other than Public Enemy's Flavor Flav.
Bobby Shmurda's time behind bars is playing out like a bad movie. The 20-year-old rapper, who's already in jail, was arrested on Rikers Island in New York on June 21 after officials witnessed his girlfriend giving him a weapon during a jail visit.
Embattled rappers Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel appeared in Manhattan Supreme Criminal Court in New York on Thursday (June 25) to begin their trial on conspiracy and gun charges. However, the trial was postponed until October.
It's the most wonderful time of the year for rising hip-hop artists. XXL magazine is gearing up for their annual Freshman class cover, which the outlet uses to shine light on burgeoning rappers -- and occasionally R&B artists. Now it's time to vote on who will receive the coveted No. 10 spot.
