"I've been trying to get in contact with 50 and them for the longest for some management or something, man," Shmurda told New York's Hot 97's "Ebro in the Morning" on Thursday.
Shmurda became a certified rap star in 2014 after his hit single "Hot N---a" grew from a viral Internet hit to an established rap radio anthem. In July, Bobby was signed to Epic Records, thanks to former G-Unit executive Sha Money XL.
Things slowed down considerably for Shmurda after his December 2014 arrest. He's currently facing multiple charges -- including conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree and one count of criminally using drug paraphernalia -- and is being held on a $2 million bail, which he hasn't been able to afford.
Fif has repeatedly said that he likes Shmurda's music, but to actually get into business with Bobby is something else entirely.
