Bobby Shmurda is making big moves and has inked a new management deal with Roc Nation as he gets back in the music industry to work on his debut album.
The New York rapper, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, was released from jail in February after serving six of his seven-year sentence for conspiracy and weapons possession. While free, he is still under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on February 23, 2026.
The rapper is working on music with a number of the best and hottest artists currently, among them Swae Lee, DaBaby, and Migos, among others.
He shared his excitement online, noting the challenges his career faced.
“We’re going to be dancing 24/7,” Shmurda said. “When I dance, it’s to show you that I came through the struggle, but I overcame it and we’re still overcoming it.”
There were speculations about Roc Nation having signed Shmurda in June after he shared several videos of himself posing at the company’s office.
Bobby Shmurda has also attended several other events, including one 4th of July event attended by Jay-Z.
Since his release, he hasn’t put out music, but he’s set to perform at Summer Jam in New York and Made in America Festival in Philadelphia in the fall.
Meanwhile, the rapper has been added to Roc Nation’s artist lineup on its website. A write-up of the artist says, “He’s a multiplatinum hip-hop artist that hails from Brooklyn, New York who recently expanded his global reach with his collaborations with Latin heavyweights J. Balvin, Daddy Yankee, and Eladio Carrion on “TATA.”
The rapper first shot to fame in 2014 following the release of his Billboard hit single “Hot N*gga,” which peaked at No. 6 on the Hot 100 chart and gained him fame after the song went viral with his “Shmoney Dance”.
