Bobby Shmurda has pleaded not guilty to charges claiming he's a member of a New York City street gang, responsible for shootings and drug trafficking.

According to the AP, the 20-year-old rapper (real name: Ackquille Pollard) was arraigned Thursday (Dec. 18) and held on $2 million bail.

Shmurda was arrested early Wednesday (Dec. 17), along with several others from his GS9 crew, as part of a 100-count indictment, which includes murder, attempted murder, assault, conspiracy, reckless endangerment and gun possession charges.

They were picked up at Quad City Studios, located near Radio City Music Hall, during which police found two handguns and a small amount of crack cocaine in the vehicle he was riding in.

If convicted, Shmurda faces a maximum sentence of 8 to 25 years in prison.
