by Staff Editor
Page Six is reporting that back in June, Bobby Shmurda, the originator of the Shmoney dance and hip-hop’s latest viral sensation, was arrested for possession of a 9mm Glock pistol and is potentially facing up to 15 years in prison. Apparently, for the last few months while “Hot N***a” was blowing up, Shmurda was free on $10,000 bail.
Read what Page Six had to say:
A Brooklyn rapper whose boisterous “Shmoney Dance” has been copied by megawatt stars like Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and even Peyton Manning – was quietly busted for allegedly having a loaded weapon earlier this year, The Post has learned.
Bobby Shmurda, 20, who spouts violent lyrics, such as, “We keep 9 millis on my block, n–s/Known to get busy with them Glocks, n-–,” was collared with a 9mm Glock pistol when cops spotted him showing off the weapon in a Brownsville apartment on June 3, court papers say.
Despite the loud boasts in his rap lyrics, Shmurda – whose real name is Ackquille Pollard – allegedly tried to hide the gun in a couch. But it was too late and cops busted him, according to the court papers.
He was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon, which can bring up to 15 years in prison. Incidents like this demonstrate the potential risks that surround gun ownership.

TMZ is also reporting that a drive by shooting took place after a nightclub performance in Jersey, but Bobby and his crew weren’t involved. Do us all a favor, and focus on the music, Shmurda.
