Shmurda was re-arrested on contrabrand charge in Rikers Island

It looks like Bobby Shmurda just can’t catch a break. The Epic Records recording hit-maker whose real name is Ackquille Pollard appeared in Manhattan Supreme Court for his hearing in connection with his multiple conspiracy trial. Shmurda has been incarcerated since December 2014 along with Rowdy Rebel and 13 members of his GS9 crew. Shmurda and his crew are each being held on $2 million dollar bail a piece.

Unfortunately, in a twist of events, the prosecution revealed that Shmurda was re-arrested this week on first degree charges of “promoting prison contraband” which is a class D felony and a separate charge that Shmurda will have to answer to in a separate hearing. The prosecutor stated that Shmurda was charged in the Bronx Criminal Court for the offense after receiving a sharpened metal instrument while in Rikers Island. Schmurda says that he has received support from fellow Brooklyn rapper Maino whose been trying to help him get out. Shmurda also said he’s gotten support from Meek Mill, Fabolous, French Montana and Migos. During the hearing today, Judge James Burke set Shmurda’s trial date for October 5th.
