Bobby Shmurda isn’t free quite yet, but has reportedly posted $2 million bail after spending the last six weeks behind bars on charges ranging from gun to drug offenses, reports the New York Times.
The city now has up to 72 hours to review the bail package, which was put up by “management associates” of the rapper, providing property as the collateral. Epic Records, his record label, did not post his bail, despite previous reports that said they would do so.
Shmurda (real name: Ackquille Pollard) has been jailed since mid-December, when he and a dozen other members of his GS9 crew were arrested as part of a 100-count indictment that alleges the collective was a gang involved in everything from drug trafficking to murder.
“There is no question that Ackquille Pollard is the driving force behind the GS9 gang and the organizing figure within this conspiracy,” Nigel Farina, a prosecutor, said, according the Times.
Shmurda was arraigned on Thursday (Jan. 29), where 32 additional counts were brought forth against GS9. He and 14 others pleaded not guilty to all charges… and requests to lower their bail ammount were denied.
The rapper is being held at the Manhattan Detention Complex, but is expected to be released as soon as Monday (Feb. 2).
