Wiz Khalifa Sends ‘Positive Energy’ to Bobby Shmurda After Indictment
Bobby Shmurda’s indictment on drug and gun charges is the hot topic on social media. It seems that everyone has an opinion about the case -- good and bad. Fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa, who has had several run-ins with the law himself, offered words of encouragement for the incarcerated 20-year-old.
The Taylor Gang leader urged his followers not to be so critical of Shmurda and to send positive thoughts his way.
“Don't judge Bobby. He has enough people to do that,” he tweeted. “Instead pray and send positive energy for him and his situation.”
“The cycle of how they treat young entertainers repeats itself. He'll overcome this the same way I did,” he added. “I got locked up early in my career as well so I know the feeling. “No tweets. Just the energy in the universe. Put more positive out than negative.”
It’s true. Wiz was arrested in 2010, just when his song ‘Black and Yellow’ was rising up the music charts. The Pittsburgh, Pa., native was charged with a felony count of trafficking in marijuana, a felony count of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle/place for sale or storage of marijuana and one misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
All of those charges could have sent Khalifa to prison but, fortunately, he was able to work out a deal and avoid any type of incarceration.
However, Khalifa’s run-ins with the law don't compare to Shmurda's problematic legal case, which is very serious. On top of that, New York City has the toughest gun laws in the nation. So the ‘Hot N----’ rapper has a huge legal fight ahead of him. Twenty-one guns were seized during the arrest of Shmurda and 12 other GS9 crew members.
We hope that Bobby Shmurda can pull through this. He's a talented young man who was on the cusp of stardom and was about to make his mark in the rap game.
