Bobby Shmurda has been in jail for 448 days without trial. And he won’t get his next day in court until May 11.
He’s been pretty vocal about the unfairness of his treatment — in particular his $2 million bail that the judge refuses to reduce.
Bobby’s mom Leslie Pollard echoed many of her boys complaints in a new interview with XXL.
In addition to railing against the legal system, she commented on what rappers have reached out to her 21 year old son, who was arrested on drugs and guns charges in December of 2014.
“Me, myself, I’ve been in contact with 50 [Cent]. I’ve been in contact with, always in contact with Ebro [Darden of Hot 97] from the radio station. He’s great support from Hot 97. I’ve been in touch recently with Ace General, he’s one of the actors in Money & Violence. Ackquille has been in contact with Meek Mill, he’s been in contact with Maino. I think he spoke to Fabolous. He’s spoken to quite a few people, but me, myself, those are the three I’ve been in contact with.”
Pollard went on to say that she “kinda of lost contact” with 50.
She also said her son is working on new music while in prison, and is writing a movie script.
“He loves music but [movies are something] he was always interested in transitioning to. He loves the whole Will Smith thing,” she explained “That’s something he’s very interested in, acting. I don’t know, have you ever met Ackquille before? He’s very animated and comical.”
