27th February 2021

BOBBY Shmurda has been welcomed home from prison by Chris Brown who has described the rapper as the "King of New York".

But after being released from jail after almost seven years, the 26-year-old's first call was to his mom who he spoke to in an emotional video chat.


Shmurda was released from the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York 10 months early yesterday and was picked up by his friends in a private jet.

While on the plane, he FaceTimed his mom Leslie Pollard telling her "I'm coming to see you ma."

In a clip of the call, she shrieks: "Oh my goodness, look at my baby.

"I miss you and I cannot wait to kiss you. I love you. You look good."

The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision database updated Shmurda's custody status to "released" just before 8.30am ET on Tuesday morning.

Upon hearing the news, fellow artist Chris Brown posted on his Instagram story: "SHMUDA HOME KING OF NEW YORK S**T!! BIG BLOOD BUT I SALUTE A REAL LOC."

Shmurda, lesser known as Ackquille Pollard, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of weapons in September 2016, and accepted a seven-year prison sentence. 

In 2017, Shmurda pleaded guilty to promoting prison contraband and was sentenced to four years in prison, which he served concurrently. 

Shmurda was denied parole in September due to multiple violations including alleged fighting and drug possession while incarcerated.

A video, uploaded prior to his release, showed his friends on a private jet reportedly on their way to pick him up from jail.

Footage from the private jet also appeared to show rapper Quavo, who is part of trio Migos, on board.

Quavo previously confirmed he would be going to pick up Shmurda from jail in an interview with Billboard.

"I'm going to get my guy," Quavo said. "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."

The rapper also wants to return to music when he is set free, with his mom saying he will devote most, if not all, of his time to releasing music.

He will reportedly also have to regularly check in with his parole officer when he leaves, reports TMZ.

Shmurda will continue seeing his officer until February 23 2026, according to the outlet.
