A gun charge against the rapper, born Ackquille Pollard, has been dropped, Lupé Todd, Director of Communications at Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson's office, confirmed with XXL. The alleged incident involved him firing a gun into a crowd of people near a barber shop in June 2014.
"It's just a matter of the D.A. office formally stating [the dismissal] on the record," Howard Greenberg, Shmurda's attorney, said.
While that may be good news for the "Bobby Bitch" MC, he's still not in the clear. The 20-year-old still faces a host of other charges including conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree and one count of criminally using drug paraphernalia.
It also appears that he'll still be facing the gun charge he was hit with when he arrested in New York City on December 17. He'll begin the process of fighting those charges later this week.
"The intermediate plan is if there is a superseding indictment on the 29th is to enter a plea of not guilty," Greenberg told XXL. "The long term plan is to kick some ass and take no prisoners."
