Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda is reportedly going to have time to think behind bars after pleading not guilty to multiple criminal charges Thursday (January 29) in New York.
According to reports, Shmurda did not cut any deals and is scheduled to return to court 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)
Greenberg also dismissed rumors about Bobby getting into a recent jail altercation.
“Bullsh*t,” Greenberg told REVOLT about the circulating rumor. “Saw him yesterday (January 20) in court. He looked fantastic.” (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)
