Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda has finally broken his silence from jail after having a publicized bail revoked earlier in the week.
After denying rumors about being stabbed and talking about fellow inmates showing support, Shmurda spoke on his bail woes.
“Uhhh… We’re trying, but right now I think the DA and the judge and everyone in the court is being biased. It’s so crazy. The favoritism, yeah. They don’t have no evidence, no nothing on me for the bill to be so high. I haven’t been out for a year, I haven’t been around for a year. So I didn’t make two million dollars! [Laughs] They gave me a bill they know I can’t pay. We can pay the 10 percent. And we tried to pay the 10 percent and they told us collateral. And every time we go for bail, it’s something new.” (Billboard)

Shmurda also talked about what music stars have kept in touch.
“When I see the judge and the DA, I just see a bunch of people [who are] trying to take my life away for being blessed. That’s what I look at when I look at them. It looks like a bunch of haters. … I talked to Meek [Mill]. I talked to French [Montana]. I talked to Migos. I stay in contact with people. … [To my fans], keep your head up. Everybody goes through tough times and good times. You know what, tough times don’t last forever. I say, God makes his toughest battles for his strongest soldiers.” (Billboard)
Reports this week revealed Shmurda would have to remain in jail until his next hearing in April.
A $2 million bail package application posted Friday on behalf of the 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper, who is facing an array of gang conspiracy charges, was pulled on Wednesday, the office of the special narcotics prosecutor for New York City said. “It’s our understanding that the suretor has withdrawn and that no hearing is currently scheduled,” said Kati Cornell, a spokeswoman for the office.

Recent reports claimed Shmurda’s bail would be reviewed by the city.
Bobby Shmurda, the spark-plug Brooklyn rapper, has posted $2 million bail after spending more than six weeks in jail on gun and drug charges related to allegations of a gang conspiracy, his attorney said on Friday. The city will now have up to 72 hours to review the bail package, which was arranged with the help of Ira Judelson, a bail bondsman known for his high-profile clients, including the rappers Ja Rule and DMX.
