American rapper Ackquille Jean Pollard who goes by the stage name Bobby Shmurda has been released from prison after six years.
According to a statement from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, the rapper was released today, 23 February 2021.
“At approximately 8:30 this morning, Ackquille Pollard was conditionally released from Clinton Correctional Facility. Mr. Pollard will be under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on February 23, 2026.”
The rapper was originally set for release in December 2021 but was set free on parole earlier than that due to good behavior. The rapper has rejoined some of his industry counterparts and is reportedly looking to change his rap moniker to “Biggy Schmurda.”
Shortly before his release, Shmurda wrote a note to thank his fans for being there for him. According to Variety, Bobby wrote: “Thank you for remaining loyal and for riding this six year sentence out with me. I love you all and look forward to seeing you soon.”
