New York rapper Bobby Shmurda‘s days behind bars could be behind him as early as next week according to celebrity bail bondsman Ira Judelson.
According to Judelson, who is known for helping celebrities like Ja Rule post bail, he could have the necessary bond in the coming days.
“At the end of the day, I’m their bank. I’m the one who is going to be putting up the money to secure their appearance in court,” Judelson told Bossip after attending a hearing for Shmurda and his GS9 co-defendants at Manhattan Supreme Court Thursday. “Bobby is relying on me to put up the $2 million to get him out the door, get him back to his family and get his music career back on track.” (Bossip)

Shmurda did not cut any deals when he appeared in court this week and is scheduled for another appearance in April.
Bobby Shmurda has pled not guilty to all charges today in his first hearing since being arrested Dec. 17. The 20-year-old Brooklyn MC had been indicted along with Rowdy Rebel and 13 members of their GS9 crew on 69 charges ranging from drug distribution to conspiracy to commit murder. All pled not guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court in hearings today that lasted three and a half hours. The next court date for the crew has been set for April 22. (XXL Mag)
Last week, Shmurda’s lawyer Howard Greenberg revealed his Brooklyn gun charge would vanish into thin air soon.
“Brooklyn D.A. office announced that the gun case in Brooklyn will be dismissed in about two weeks,” Greenberg confirmed. That Brooklyn case, according to court papers, alleged that Bobby fired a gun toward a crowd of people outside a barber shop. There was also another incident in which he was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia after police seized two loaded firearms and narcotics paraphernalia inside a Brooklyn residence.” (Revolt TV)
Despite buzz of Epic Records posting $2 million bail for Shmurda, Greenberg recently said his client had remained jailed during the Christmas holiday.
“There is no news. We’re just trying to put something else together now,” Greenberg said about Epic possibly posting the $2 million bail. “My guy’s rich, he’s busy. He’s always on tour. He’s supposedly leader of this crew, but he’s not charged with any violence. Use your head, it doesn’t make any sense. I’m not going to let them crucify Bobby Shmurd.” (The FADER)
