GS9’s Rowdy Rebel Issues Statement From Jail
Since he, Bobby Shmurda, and the rest of the GS9 crew were indicted on a series of charges in New York earlier this month, Rowdy Rebel has been biding his time. Now, we have the first bit of communication from the other side of the partition. The Brooklyn rapper placed a phone call to his girlfriend in which he favors shoutouts over assertions of innocence or substantive reports of any sort.
Among the litany of violent incidents to which the rappers are tied is a July shooting, after which Rowdy allegedly played the Barclay Center only hours later—allegedly in the same clothes. The charges against the group as a whole can be read here. Their next court date is Jan 29, 2015.
