Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda will finally be released from prison today.
According to NPR, the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision finally granted the rapper a conditional release on Tuesday, February 23. Bobby will also be greeted warmly as soon as he leaves prison, Migos rapper Quavo confirmed.
In an interview with Billboard, Quavo said that he would be personally picking up the rapper when he gets released. “I’m going to get my guy,” he said. “I’m personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I’m ’bout to go get him. I’m gonna let him show you how I’m gonna pick him up, yessir.”
Speaking to TMZ, Bobby’s mother Leslie Pollard also added that the rapper will celebrate his return home with an intimate dinner with his close family and friends.
Following the good news, Bobby took to his Instagram stories to thank his loyal supporters with a heartfelt post. “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,” the rapper wrote, signing the post off with “Bod boy Bobby.”
Bobby was originally denied parole last September but was finally deemed eligible for release in January this year. The rapper born Ackquille Pollard will serve out the remainder of his sentence on parole until December 2021. He was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2016 after pleading guilty to conspiracy and weapons possession charges.
