Things have been looking bleak for Bobby Shmurda since his December arrest, and there's still no good news coming his way. Earlier reports indicated that he would be released on $2 million bail any day now, but that has changed.
The Brooklyn rapper, born Ackquille Pollard, has been in police custody since Dec. 17, facing multiple charges -- including conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree and one count of criminally using drug paraphernalia -- and The New York Times confirms that his bail offer has been withdrawn.
“It’s our understanding that the suretor has withdrawn and that no hearing is currently scheduled,” said Kati Cornell, a spokeswoman for New York City's office of the special narcotics prosecutor.
Shmurda's lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery, said he is currently working on a new strategy to get the "Hot N----a" rapper out of jail, after his "management associates" decided against posting the bail money.
“We’re trying to do a new bond application and are in the process in the figuring that out,” Montgomery said. “We’re hoping to get it done within the next week.”
“Bobby is not claimed to have shot anyone, he has no drug dealer weight on him. It’s simply a gun case and some phone conversations."
