In a recent interview with Variety, Bobby Shmurda discussed his time in prison. As part of the conversation, the Brooklyn rapper claimed some officers turned a blind eye to his smoking weed and oral sex behind bars.
Bobby Shmurda’s experience in prison:
In response to a question about the craziest moments in prison, he replied, “I don’t know if it’s the riots or the sex on the visits. I got oral sex, didn’t get sex sex. I’m too big to be doing all that other shit, ya understand”?
In addition, he said, “Some of the officers wouldn’t care, they’d be like [shrug]. Some would be like, ‘Ackquille Pollard! Chill, hold it down, son! What the fuck you doing? This girl right here, both of y’all get the fuck out”!
At 16, Shmurda attempted to burn down a psychiatric ward after security wouldn’t let him leave. Comparatively, he said prison was better, since “you smoke weed, get head on visits and shit, you good”.
During his six years behind bars, Bobby Shmurda admitted he felt defeated at times when he was fighting officers.
“All the times when I was fighting police, that’s when I felt defeated,” Shmurda said. “I didn’t feel defeated… well, defeated, yeah. Because when I fight police, I used to be on some ‘fuck everything’ shit. When someone makes me errrr, I want to hurt somebody. Those days, yeah, I felt defeated”.
Shmurda added, “Usually, I’d laugh with them. People who come up to my hole, [if] they’d fuck with me, I’d be laughing at them. ‘Shut your miserable ass up, get out of here. You crazy'”.
Shmurda got the vibes going:
As well as keeping up with his dance moves inside, Bobby Shmurda had convicted murderers dancing to a variety of different genres during his time in prison.
“I made killers dance,” he added. “I make everybody dance with everybody. I’ll play all types of music: Spanish music, pop music, Jamaican music. I do everything but country and rock. I can’t really get into country and rock too much. Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz, I like everything”.
