Rapper Bobby Shmurda Released From Prison

 Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda has been released from prison, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision has confirmed.


The “Hot Ni***” rapper was released from the Clinton Correctional Facility just before 8:30 local time on Tuesday morning, TMZ reported.

In a statement, NYS DOCCS said, “At approximately 8:30 this morning, Ackquille Pollard was conditionally released from Clinton Correctional Facility. Mr. Pollard will be under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on February 23, 2026.”

Bobby Shmurda, known for his viral 2014 hit “Hot N—a,” was originally scheduled to be released in December 2021; as the New York Times reported in January, he was made eligible for conditional early release on parole thanks to good behaviour during his term.

Prior to his release, Shmurda in an Instagram Story wrote: “Thank you for remaining loyal and for riding this six year sentence out with me. I love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.”

The first thing Shmurda did after being discharged was to call his mother Leslie Pollard on FaceTime to celebrate.
