Published April 19th

Bobby Shmurda has been in jail for a while now wondering the fate of not only his rap career but his life in general.

Things may have him a little more worried now as two members of his GS9 crew have been convicted of murder. According to a press release from the Special Narcotics Prosecutor’s Office in New York City, Rashid Derissant and Alex Crandon were found guilty for the February 2013 murder of a 19-year-old rival gang member in Brooklyn.

The two were convicted on a slew of charges including Second Degree Murder, Conspiracy to Commit Murder, Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Attempted Assault.

“As indicated by their verdict, the jurors in this trial heard evidence describing a cold blooded murder, wild gunplay and a terrifying disregard for the safety of innocent bystanders as the defendants tried to violently settle scores with rivals in New York City and beyond,” Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget G. Brennan said in a statement.

Bobby Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, is still awaiting his own trial. He was arrested in December 2014 for Conspiracy and other weapons and drug charges, and has been denied bond seven different times. His arrest was in connection with other members of his GS9 gang.
