Bobby Shmurda and various GS9 crew members were arrested by NYPD Wednesday night, December 17th, while recording at Quad studios in near Radio City Music Hall. At the time, it was unclear just how serious (and how many) charges there were against the burgeoning rapper and his affiliates but now details have surfaced around the arrests,
After the group’s arraignment, the full list of charges was released, and it did not look good for the phenom rapper who’s being investigated for involvement in murders, drug trafficking, and other gang-related incidents. Apparently the charges were accumulated after “a long-term investigation,” which is never a good sign.
Bobby Shmurda’s lawyer has maintained his innocence (as did the rest of the crew), saying, “Does it make sense that he would resort to committing crimes when he has the world in the palm of his hand? It’s ridiculous.” Nonetheless, how this will affect him or his rap career remains unknown… until the indictment.
The indictment is expected to be unsealed next Thursday morning in Manhattan Supreme Court. The arrests were the result of a longterm probe by the NYPD’s Brooklyn Violence Reduction Task Force.
