Bobby Shmurda - Before They Were Famous

BEFORE he was on iLP FIRST, before everyone else rode the wave BEFORE Bobby Shmurda dropped his tracks
 BEFORE the Shmoney Dance would blow up on Vine & take over the internet and nightclubs throughout 2014. 
 BEFORE Bobby received mad respect from Jay Z, Beyonce, DJ Mustard, Meek Mill, Raekwon & had his work remixed by practically everyone in the industry 
 BEFORE TOM HARDY & LEO DICPARIO joked about a Bobby Shmurda reference being cut from The Revenant. 

BEFORE Bobby Shmurda would be sent to prison on conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession charges with bail set at $2 million dollars.

 Bobby Shmurda born Ackquille Pollard grew up with roots in both the North & the South which would later go on to play a role in his artistic style. Growing up in Brooklyn, young Bobby had himself a case of ADD and was constantly finding himself in trouble getting into fights and kicking it with his older brother's crew who were deeply involved in street life. This led to young Bobby himself getting in on the action. 

When he wasn't hustling on the streets he had made for himself a make shift studio in his home where he would remix his favorite tracks from artists like 50 Cent and Jay Z. But his street life would keep getting him in trouble with the law and he was sent to a correctional detention center for over a year. When he got out he put together "Hot N---" and as quickly as he was launched to fame he would find himself looked up behind bars and it looks like they are trying to throw away the key.

What’s going on guys, my name is – here for you on Before They Were Famous.
