Bobby Shmurda was formally sentenced to today (Oct. 19). After accepting a plea deal, the Brooklyn rapper will be serving seven years in prison.
Last month, the “Hot Ni**a” rapper plead guilty to conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon charges.
According to NBC New York, on Wednesday (Oct. 19) Shmurda told the judge he actually wanted to withdraw his guilty plea, but the request was denied.
Billboard reports that Shmurda told the judge, “”I was forced to take this sentence, I did not want to take this sentence. I was forced by my attorney to take this plea.”
Reportedly, Shmurda could have got an even lighter sentence if he ratter out fellow GS9 rapper Rowdy Rebel, which he refused to do.
The only silver lining here is that Shmurda should be getting credit for the time he served. He was unable to raise bail and has been incarcerated for about two years while he awaited trial.
Considering if he gets good behavior, he may be out in three and a half years. Either way, it seems like the up and coming Brooklyn rapper caught a raw deal.
