As the case against Bobby Shmurda, Rowdy Rebel and several others remain ongoing, REVOLT sat with Larry Marshall, father to Rowdy Rebel, for an in depth chat about the legal drama impacting his family.
The Brooklyn rapper, born Chad Marshall, has been behind bars since December 2014. While he typically stays away from the cameras, Rowdy’s father broke out of that shell to lament on the absence of his two sons (Chad and Remy "Fetti" Marshall) and explain just what is really happening behind the scenes.
"These kids have no records," said Marshall to REVOLT. "We'll see what's going on."
In the revealing sit-down, Larry talks raising both of his sons, their path to music, and the trial that has since rocked his family. But after speaking with Mr. Marshall, several questions were raised. If this case is as open-shut case like many publications are painting it, why were the judges changed? Why is this a narcotics case? But perhaps the toughest question of them all might be for the lawyers — why are they allowing their clients to sit behind bars for so long? With over two years already held in jail, Rowdy Rebel and brother "Fetti" are currently set for jury selection in September.
Watch what Larry Marshall had to say about all the above in the clip below.
