Ackquille J. Pollard more famously known as Bobby Shmurda was released from the Clinton Correctional Facility this morning at 8:30am.

Shmurda was charged back in 2014 for multiple crimes including: murder, attempted murder and drug dealing. During his 6 year bid, he racked up 11 violations which in the long run got his request for parole, to be denied back in 2020.

The rapper’s most recent release date announced was scheduled for December 2021. He was permitted an early release following a review by the Time Allowance Committee. Shmurda demonstrated good behavior and participated in prison programs following his streak of bad behavior.

Shmurda will be under parole supervision for another five years, ending on February 23, 2026.

Of course his first order of business was to call his mom. Family and friends including rap superstar Quavo who picked him up on a jet to come home warmly welcome the rapper home. Welcome Home Bobby! We can’t wait for that new music. But until then… Aht Aht Aht!

Fans will get to have some fun again with the Claws star for the first few episodes until Cannon is COVID free and back to 100% healthy.
