Rapper Bobby Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, was released from jail on Tuesday, February 23 after completing six years of a seven-year sentence for conspiracy and weapons possession.

According to a statement from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, "At approximately 8:30 this morning, Ackquille Pollard was conditionally released from Clinton Correctional Facility. Mr. Pollard will be under community supervision in Kings County until he completes his sentence on February 23, 2026."

Shmurda's friend Quavo said he was planning to pick his friend up from prison.

"I'm going to get my guy," the Migos frontman told Billboard before Shmurda's release. "I'm personally gonna go pick up Bobby Shmurda. I'm bout to go get him. I'm gonna let him show you how I'm gonna pick him up, yessir."

Shmurda was originally arrested in December 2014 alongside several of his GS9 crew, including rapper Rowdy Rebel, on conspiracy to murder, weapons possession and reckless endangerment charges.

Shmurda took a plea deal for 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession charges, which resulted in the seven-year sentence.

The rapper was denied parole in September 2020 and was originally ordered to serve his maximum sentence, which would have kept him incarcerated until December 11, 2021. Meanwhile, he will remain on parole until 2026.
