News: Bobby Shmurda Speaks From Jail

February 9th, 2015 No comments

Last week Bobby Shmurda got bad news that his $2 million bail was withdrawn and since his December arrest for charges that could potentially send him away for 25 years the Brooklyn rapper has stayed rather quiet. Over the weekend Billboard had the opportunity to speak with the GS9 rapper about life on the inside, the possibilities of making the $2 million bail, rumors and more.

There are so many rumors, like, that you got stabbed.
It’s nothing but rumors, man. I’m good. Everybody knows I’m good. I’m chilling. We over here — we over here thugging it out, man. [Laughs.]

Your mother and your lawyer are working hard to get you out on bail. Are you hopeful about that?
Uhhh… We’re trying, but right now I think the DA and the judge and everyone in the court is being biased. It’s so crazy. The favoritism, yeah. They don’t have no evidence, no nothing on me for the bill to be so high. I haven’t been out for a year, I haven’t been around for a year. So I didn’t make two million dollars! [Laughs] They gave me a bill they know I can’t pay. We can pay the 10 percent. And we tried to pay the 10 percent and they told us collateral. And every time we go for bail, it’s something new. [Note: The Special Prosecutor's Office said last week that the suretor (the person putting up collateral for Shmurda) had withdrawn. Shmurda's lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery, says the defense is now working on a more viable bail package.]

Your last hearing was Jan. 29. What were you thinking in court?
When I see the judge and the DA, I just see a bunch of people [who are] trying to take my life away for being blessed. That’s what I look at when I look at them. It looks like a bunch of haters.

See the full interview and article over at Billboard.

Since it seems we won’t be getting Tha Carter V anytime soon due to the problems with Cash Money, Lil Wayne takes matter into his own hands and announces a new project entitled The Free Weezy Album that will be arriving very soon for our listening pleasure. As if Sorry 4 The Wait 2 wasn’t enough to make up for the album delay, Weezy is ready to dish out more music while we wait to see what happens with the label situation. At least he is still putting out music for the fans.

January 29th, 2015 No comments

We are sure everyone is aware of the ongoing feud between Lil Wayne and Birdman/Cash Money. After revealing that the label owed him $8 million for his delayed album Tha Carter V, Wayne kept his promise and is taking it to the courts but the grand total he is going after is a total of $51 million.

According to the lawsuit, besides the money Weezy also wants to end the contract with Cash Money and take Young Money with him, which includes artists Drake and Nicki Minaj. It seems C5 may only be released if Birdman antes up. This could whole situation could get very interesting.
