Bobby Shmurda’s friends and fans are celebrating after the Brooklyn native returned home on Tuesday (Feb. 23) following a six-year stint in prison. The 26-year-old left the New York Clinton Correctional Facility in a private jet this morning with Quavo and was welcomed back by Offset, Rowdy Rebel, Fetty Luciano and more.
Rebel, who was released from prison at the end of last year, reacted to his friend’s return on Instagram. “The trio is back [to]gether” he captioned a photo of himself, Shmurda and Luciano on his Story.
In a post, Chris Brown also responded to the good news, writing, “Shmurda home king of New York shit!! Big Blood but I salute a real LOC.”
On Twitter, Meek Mill celebrated Shmurda’s return, writing, “Bobby back… we needed that.”
After his release, Shmurda FaceTimed his mother, Leslie Pollard. The joyful conversation was reposted by the 2Cool2Blog Instagram page.
“Oh my goodness, look at my baby! How are you?” Pollard can be heard yelling to Shmurda. “What’s up baby boy? I miss you!”
“I’m coming to see you ma!” Shmurda responds.
Speaking with TMZ on Monday (Feb. 22), Pollard said she planned an intimate family dinner for her son’s arrival. After he’s reconnected with friends and relatives, she said, the rapper is looking forward to getting back into the studio.
On Instagram, Pollard shared her FaceTime conversation with Shmurda and reacted to her son’s release.
“There are no words to explain the JOY in my [heart],” she wrote. “God knows the way I Love my boys and I thank him for bringing them both back to me in one piece the same way they left. I am so overwhelmed and in [six] years [two] months and [five] days and 5.5 [hours] I finally feel like myself again. God is so good and we are truly BLESSED!!!!”
