Since his return to freedom, Bobby Shmurda has been slowly but surely making his way back to the forefront musically. Following his return to wax on Eladio Carrión, J Balvin, and Daddy Yankee’s “Tata (Remix),” last month saw the Brooklyn star drop off the comeback single “No Time For Sleep,” which fans hope marked the first step towards a new album campaign. Today (Oct. 28), Shmurda continues to build momentum with “Cartier Lens,” which sees him continuing the real life subject matter that he’s become well-known for:
“Get M’s, nigga, fuck you think it’s Bobby B, I’m off the the pens, nigga, gotta thank God first ‘fore I kiss my hands, nigga, had to crawl first ‘fore I touched a band, nigga, yeah, I parked up, four niggas bent, nigga…”
Back in February, Shmurda was released from prison following a seven-year prison sentence for a variety of charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment. As previously reported by REVOLT, Shmurda recently spoke on his feelings post-release during a visit to “Desus and Mero”:
“Honestly, it’s mixed emotions … Some days is work, and some days it’s like, ‘Man, I’m home.’ You know when you can’t believe you’re home?
When you come home, you gotta see everything and what’s what. What’s this? What’s that? That’s what’s really been going on. I’m trying to see what’s this and what’s that before you move cause being in jail just made me smarter. I used to move off a lot of impulse.”
During that same interview, Shmurda also confirmed that plenty of music was coming — including his and his crew’s Shmigo Gang project with Migos. That body work shouldn’t come as a surprise, given that Quavo himself retrieved his close crony from Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York.
Press play on “Splash.” Hopefully, the output from Bobby Shmurda will continue to increase as we move further into the colder months.
