“They don’t like the fact that I made it out the neighborhood,” Shmurda says. “They don’t like the fact that I’m a young black kid.”
For the second time in two weeks, Bobby Shmurda called into Hot 97 to speak with the radio station’s morning show, “Ebro in the Morning.”
This time around, they were able to complete their conversation with Bobby without interruption.
During the eight-minute phone call, Rowdy Rebel spoke to the morning show hosts first.
Rowdy was unable to give a concrete date on when he and Shmurda will be released, but he did offer his opinion or whether his label, Epic Records, should front the $2 million bail set for both GS9 members.
“No doubt, they ready to make $20 million, $40 million off of us,” Rowdy says on-air. “Epic has been supporting us. It’s really Sony [the parent company]. They’re lying saying they really can’t do nothing. It’s really Sony.”
Bobby tells Ebro, Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg that the only Hip Hop-affiliated support he’s received has been from Slowbucks founder Sup and Meek Mill.
“Sup from Slobucks came and tried to check me,” Bobby says. “He tried to get me out but the insurer that he had wasn’t good. That’s it right now. Meek Mill just sent me some mail. I’m trying to get his address right now to send back.”
Since being incarcerated, Bobby also revealed that he’s been trying to get in contact with 50 Cent for “some management.”
Towards the end of the conversation, Bobby proclaims that he’s behind bars because of “bias and racism.”
“I come from a nasty neighborhood where cops don’t like the people from where I’m from,” he says. “They’ve been after me for a whole long time for nothing. I didn’t even do nothing, just because of the neighborhood I come from. It’s nasty.
“They don’t like the fact that I made it out the neighborhood,” he continues. “They don’t like the fact that I’m a young black kid. It’s crazy it’s bias and racism right now. If you go to that court room and sit in that court room and see what’s going on, it’s racism and bias going on.”
