Artist Spotlight : Bobby Shmurda

Ackquille Jean Pollard (born August 4, 1994), known by his stage name Bobby Shmurda, is a rapper from Brooklyn, signed to Epic Records. He is best known for his song "Hot Nigga", (released in July 2014) a song that debuted the "Shmoney dance," which went viral after the release of the music video. The song peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, with the song being remixed and performed by numerous other artists including Lil' Kim, French Montana, Sean Mon Thomas, Juicy J, and Gunplay. On December 17, 2014, he was arrested by New York City Police, who alleged that he was the ringleader of a Crips gang known as GS9, the same as his label, which shot indiscriminately into public crowds and is rumored to have murdered a member of a rival gang. Pollard has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, multiple weapons possession, and reckless endangerment as part of a 15-person, 69-count indictment that included his brother Javese and fellow GS9 label-mate Rowdy Rebel. Shmurda pled not guilty.
