New York Magazine has a long and interesting piece on Bobby Shmurda.
It talks about his upbringing and the problems that his sudden rise to fame caused even before he was arrested along with members of his GS9 crew on weapons and drugs charges.
It's a good read, and toward the end of the article Shmurda proclaims his innocence.
"I’m innocent,” Ackquille [Shmurda] Pollard says. "I’ll explain it to all of them. I’m just a young black kid coming from a nasty neighborhood. I made it out, and a lot of people don’t want to see that.” "It was so crazy with the police,” he continued, referencing his $2 million bail. "There’s people with ten murders that got $500,000 bail, and I’m not even on an attempted murder."Given the behavior of his record company and the opinion of "experts," we've been led to believe that Shmurda is in a world of legal trouble. Do you think there's a chance he really is innocent, and will be able to prove it in a court of law?
