According to a New York jail inmate lookup, Shmurda — born Ackquille Pollard — earned himself a conditional release date of February 23. He was previously denied parole by a judge in September 2020. Upon regaining his freedom, the “Hot N*gga” rapper’s file also states he’ll be under post-release supervision for the next five years.

Shmurda was originally arrested in late 2014 on conspiracy, drug and weapons charges for his alleged role in Brooklyn’s GS9 gang activity. Shmurda was sentenced to seven years behind bars and is currently being held inside New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility.

Rebel was released from the Ogdensburg Correction Facility in December 2020, just a couple of months ahead of his close friend and collaborator. The “Computers” rapper was one of the 14 GS9 members arrested in December 2014 by the NYPD.

Rebel has kept busy since regaining his freedom. On February 12, he teamed up with NAV for the release of “Jesse Owens.”
