Bobby Shmurda will finally be heading to court for his trial this summer.
During a Manhattan Supreme Court hearing on Wednesday (Apr. 22), the Brooklyn rapper was given a Jun. 25 hearing date to begin his upcoming trial, according to XXL. Fellow GS9 rapper Rowdy Rebel was given the same start date.
The rappers are two of more than a dozen people from the crew who were arrested last year. Collectively, they were hit with an array of charges, weapons and drugs, to conspiracy and murder, among others. Shmurda himself was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment.
Since the December arrest, both Shmurda, born Ackquille Pollard, and Rebel, born Chad Marshall, have been behind bars, held on $2 million bail.
“This is a show and [the prosecutors] have to justify the show,” Shmurda's lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery said after today's hearing. “At the trial we’ll see what this is really about.”
Despite his legal problems, last we heard from Bobby, it sounded like he had serious plans to follow up his breakout his "Hot N---a."
“I’ve been trying to get in contact with 50 and them for the longest for some management or something, man,” he told Hot 97 in March, just a month after telling Billboard that, "write some platinum songs" was on his to-do list.
