Bobby Shmurda’s attorney says the government is out to get him

shmurda

Attorney Howard Greenberg thinks his client, rapper Bobby Shmurda, is being railroaded.

Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, was arrested along with members of his GS9 crew, on Dec.17, and charged with a number of crimes including conspiracy to commit second degree murder and conspiracy to commit second degree assault.

Reports shortly after the arrest said that Shmurda’s record company, Epic Records, would pay the “Hot Boy” rapper’s two million dollar bail but thus far that hasn’t happened and Shmurda spent Christmas on RIkers Island.

Greenberg tells the Fader that Shmurda’s charges fail to make sense and the government is hell bent on bringing him down:

The government hates rap and the government hates rappers. They construct a narrative and add rationalizations to make it seem true. They recruit guiltless and loveless people to whom truth is meaningless and convince them to say what they want to say. These people are jealous of a brother on the way up. My guy’s rich, he’s busy. He’s always on tour. He’s supposedly leader of this crew, but he’s not charged with any violence. Use your head, it doesn’t make any sense. I’m not going to let them crucify Bobby Shmurda

According to the authorities, the GS9 crew was the subject of a two year investigation resulting in the arrest of Shmurda and 14 others.

If convicted Bobby Shmurda is facing 8 to 25 years.

      This is complete bullshit though, both C Murder and Bobby Shmurda(hmm coincidence?) are both ghetto niggers who rap about violence. Smhurda wasn’t even going to last another year as his one hit wonder song was garbage anyway. There is more money in the music industry than you would understand and not all of the big players are white americans who want to hold blacks down. “White” people made Dr Dre the highest paid Musician when they bought the “Beats” company from him. Irrational shit like this is why blacks keep failing over and over, always gotta blame someone else.

          Are you even speaking english? I can barely respond because your grammar is so bad it makes my head hurt trying to decipher what you are saying. Cash Money isn’t even that big. Also what chinese? I thought Apple bought beats? That’s White Americans. Jeez, this is my point, learn english before you go off blaming other people. Also Cash Money is a cancerous artist eating Nigg*r machine that rips its artist off.

      Sweetie, if you are still living the stuff you rap about, you are out to get yourself. He got arrested a few months ago on a gun charge. Any smart person would know to tread carefully once you’re on their radar. He also needs a new attorney, because any professional lawyer shouldn’t be making statements of this caliber if he has any hope of exonerating his client. Their job is the catch you, your job is to not get caught.
