Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel sound like they’re doing well behind bars in a new phone interview with This is 50. The two speak on having to combat rumors from behind bars and the status of their legal issues. Shmurda clears up that he has no beef with any rapper, including 50 Cent, and says, “I don’t even do the rap beef, that’s not my character.” And says that he’s staying positive and doing as well as he can be considering the circumstances, “They locked my body up but they can’t ever lock my mind up.”
At one point in the interview, Shmurda comments on Martin Shkreli, the pharma bro who planned to bail the rapper out of jail before he caught his own charges. Shmurda says he wishes he could have gotten in contact with Shkreli before all of his legal issues went down. On Shkreli, he says, “I hope he beats his case.” Bobby must not have heard about all of the other stuff Shkreli has been involved in lately.
Fellow GS9 member, Rowdy Rebel, spoke on his experience behind bars and said that despite all of the legal issues, he’s still healthy and doing just fine. When asked about other randoms on the outside speaking on behalf of GS9, he shoots them all down. He also clarifies that, “GS9 is not a gang, GS9 is a music group, you heard?”
Rowdy Rebel also says that he has around 100 songs that he hasn’t released yet and that he’s still been talking with his friends like Meek Mill, Fabolous, French Montana, A$AP Rocky, Migos, and Troy Ave. Shmurda has also been keeping up with fellow rappers and endorses the new G.O.O.D. Music signee, Desiigner, by saying, “He’s got the radio on smash, I fucks with son.” He also says he appreciates the love he gets from the outside and the rappers and people who continue to support him.
Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel were arrested on December 17, 2014. The two have remained locked up and Shmurda has attempted to reduce his $2 million bail several times at this point. Shmurda comments on his bail woes with, “They ain’t trying to give me the deal because they know if I come home I’mma beat this.” Shmurda, along with his GS9 crew, will go to trial that is now set for this coming May.
