It feels like it’s been forever since rapper Bobby Shmurda’s breakout viral hit record, ‘Hot N*gga’, a track that Shmurda both owe’s his career to but which also may indirectly cost the New York-native seven years of his life. In order to avoid a trial, Shmurda and co-defendants, Chad Marshall and Nicholas McCoy, have accepted a plea deal from prosecution today.
Under the deal, Shmurda has pled guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession, and will serve a 7 year sentence.
