Shmurda has been locked up on conspiracy and drug charges since late last year, and he was denied bail in October. His family is working hard to post the $2 million bond amount. An aunt reportedly put up several properties as collateral.
Lawyers for Shmurda compiled a 200-page document detailing where all of the bond money will come from. They’re reportedly confident the request will be approved.
Shmurda’s family has been working with Ira Judelson, a New York City bondsman well known to celebrity and other high-profile cases. Judelson has handled bonds for Lil Wayne, Plaxico Burress, and disgraced former French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn, whose $6 million bond was among the largest in New York’s history.
When reached for a statement, Shmurda's attorney Alex Spiro told BET.com, "I cannot comment at this point."
