Bobby Shmurda Talks $2 Million Bail, 50 Cent & More
Bobby Shmurda called into ThisIs50 recently, after being denied bail for the seventh time in January.
During the interview, the Brooklyn rapper explained why he thinks his bail is getting denied. "They ain't trying to give me the deal because they know if I come home, I'ma beat this," he said.
Shmurda is facing a number of charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment and weapons possession. His bail was originally set at $2 million, but has since had it revoked.
He's due back in court on Feb. 22.
Listen to the interview below, and read a few of the highlights:
On rumored beef with 50 Cent: "50's cool. I don't do the rap beef. Everybody that know Bobby know I don't do the rap beef. I don't got time for all that. First of all, I'm in jail. How I'ma beef with someone when I'm in jail? I don't even do the rap beef. That's not my character... 50 cool. 50 ain't never disrespect me."
On the $2 million bail: "They ain't trying to give me the deal because they know if I come home, I'ma beat this, so right now, they trying to hold me in here as long as possible. So, they're trying to hold me in for like 3 or 4 years. And then try to give me time served or something but they don't nothing on me. I'm not even supposed to still be here. I got several lawyers maintaining my case that's saying that the bail is supposed to be dropped and these charges are supposed to be dropped. The bail is not even supposed to be high due to the Emory Law Book. But they violating my constitutional rights. They violating my civil rights that they are just flushing it down the toilet for they own political reasons."
On Martin Shkreli wanting to post his bail: "I didn't get to get in contact with him. I wish I could. I heard what happened to him. That was crazy, the whole situation is crazy. I think they did that sh*t for no reason, really. Because all this time he was out and now he was talking about us and all of a sudden he got locked. That shit is crazy. I hope he works it all out and I hope he beats his case."
