Original story: Bobby Shmurda and members of his GS9 clique were reportedly arrested earlier today (Dec. 17) at Quad Studios in New York City after numerous weapons were found and seized from the location, according to a Karen Civil source. The Brooklyn native, born Ackquille Pollard, was taken into custody along with Epic Records executive Sha Money XL—who signed the "Hot N***a" rapper to the label back in July.
This wouldn't be Shmurda's first run in with the law. Back in June, Bobby Shmurda was arrested in Brooklyn for gun possession. Little information has been disclosed about the incident. Bobby Shmurda had one hell of a year with hit singles and an infectious dance that had every celebrity and their mother attempting to get their "Shmoney" on.
XXL has reached out to Epic Records but they have no comment at this time. A search for records of his arrest is also unavailable at the moment, but we will keep you posted as the story develops.
