Bobby Shmurda was denied parole despite high hopes he would be granted, TMZ reported.

According to law enforcement sources, no reason has been given for the denial, but he will most likely serve his entire sentence behind bars. His expected release date is now December 2021. 

Last month, as the Brooklyn rapper’s mother Leslie Pollard awaited his parole hearing, she expressed her beliefs that he would be granted parole. “We [are] very confident that things will go well and as always we know God will see us through— he always does,” she said at the time. She’d also announced the rapper’s plans to release new music if the parole hearing went well.

Shmurda has been in police custody since he was arrested on gang conspiracy and gun and drug charges in 2014. Two years later, he pleaded guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and five years of probation.

Since his arrest, he’s been denied bail on numerous occasions and racked up charges after he tried to smuggle a “sharp metal object” into Rikers Island while awaiting trial.

Pollard has maintained her son was good man despite his portrayal in the media.

“No matter what person they try to portray Ackquille (Bobby Shmurda) to be… they try to make him out to be a monster, but anybody that knows him knows it’s just not that,” she previously told REVOLT. “The only thing I can do is pray it off. He can’t stay in there forever. He didn’t kill anybody.”

Shmurda also spoke to REVOLT and revealed his plans to combat injustices after his experience in jail.

“When I get home, I ain’t even gonna lie, I’ve been thinking about getting into politics and everything because this thing gotta stop. I’m ready to get into social injustice and start protesting,” he said. “I’m about to really be getting in tune with [this] because it’s crazy what the system is doing and how its not even following its own laws.”

“I’m gonna be doing a lot of things like acting, rapping, politics everything. I’m getting into a lot of stuff when I get home.”
