Bobby Shmurda Says ‘My Spirit Is Always Gonna Be Up’ While Talking About His Days In Prison

Bobby Shmurda Says ‘My Spirit Is Always Gonna Be Up’ While Talking About His Days In Prison

New York rapper Bobby Shmurda has been released from prison a week ago and the rapper sat down with GQ to detail his days behind the bars in a recent interview.

Bobby Shmurda was released about a week ago after 6 years in prison. He was sentenced to 7 years in prison in 2014 for gun possession and some gang activities.

After spending time with his family right out of jail, Bobby is thought to have his next plan to release ‘First Day Out.’ Also, in an interview with GQ, Bobby revealed why his spirit is always gonna be up.

Here’s what Bobby said:

“My spirit’s always gon’ be up. I used to sleep next to people who had 40 to life. People who’ve been in there for 30 years and haven’t laughed—I’d have them crying all day. When you got good energy, no matter where you at, you can bring a smile to someone’s face.”

This wasn’t Bobby’s first prison experience. He was in juvenile detention two years before his viral song Hot N*gga. He continued and explained how he knows to survive.

“I’m not saying jail is not going to break anybody. But usually, jail shit I don’t really care about. Even though I’m locked up all the time, I still live good in jail. Since [I was] 12. You get the best treatment in jail when you get a job.

Wanna shower five times a week instead of three? Get a job. Eat better? Get a job. More phone time? Get a job. But they kept firing my ass when they realized I was just doing it to stay on the phone.”
