Rapper Bobby Shmurda took a rollercoaster ride of a career before being sent to prison for six years (via BBC). The Brooklyn native had everyone doing his signature “shmoney dance” after the release of his single “Hot N *** a” in 2014. The song made him an internet sensation after his video for the single went viral. He has also been credited with bringing the hip-hop drill industry from Chicago to New York, Complex reported. His early success as an independent artist landed him a recording contract with Epic Records before his shocking incarceration by Rolling Stone.

“The day I go home and [if] I’m still signed with them, it’s strictly professional nothing more nothing less,” Bobby Shmurda Revolt said in 2016. “I’m signed to a contract, so I have things to do for them. But other than that, it’s strictly professional. So if they decide to drop me, I’ll be independent and I’ll stay independent. But other than that, I still have a contract with them.” His stance came after fans accused the label of not doing enough to help solve Shmurda’s legal problems, including paying his bail, according to Rolling Stone. But with such big wins in a short period of time, Shmurda had a few hundred thousand dollars waiting for him when he got out of jail in 2021.

Bobby Shmurda went 5x platinum upon release from prison

After spending six years in prison, Bobby Shmurda was released from Clinton Correctional Center in New York in February 2021. He was granted a celebratory release, with Quavo of The Migos picking him up on a private jet, TMZ reported. Although he is about to be paroled until February 2026, the rapper has still pursued a promising career. His success from his previous reign at the top earned him a net worth of $400,000 upon his release, via Celebrity Net Worth.

His valuation is only expected to rise when his music streams soar amid his return to civilian life. His single “Hot N *** a” was certified five times platinum on the day of its release, via Chart Data. Hot New Hip Hop has confirmed that the rapper’s 2014 hit has officially sold more than 5 million copies. Shmurda’s mother, Leslie Pollard, shared her post-prison plans with TMZ, which included an “intimate dinner” at home before getting back to making music.

“Thank you for staying true and escaping this six year sentence with me,” Shmurda said in a post on Instagram captured by The Shadow Room. “I love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.”
