American rapper, Ackquille Jean Pollard, known professionally as Bobby Shmurda, has released a new song “Trap Is A Sport.”
Considered a pioneer of Brooklyn drill music, Shmurda rose to international fame in 2014 when his song “Hot Nigga” peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of the single led to Shmurda signing a deal with Epic Records. His debut EP, Shmurda She Wrote, was released on November 10, 2014.
Shmurda’s debut studio album with Epic Records was scheduled for release in 2016 and was going to be produced by Jahlil Beats. It was postponed, however, due to his imprisonment.
In February 2017, Shmurda freestyled for rapper Meek Mill and claimed that he was still writing music while in prison. The following year, Shmurda featured on fellow rapper 6ix9ine’s single “Stoopid”, phoning in his verses over the prison telephone. The single peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Shmurda made his first concert performance appearance since being released from prison at Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, Florida on Friday, July 23, 2021.
On September 3, 2021, Shmurda released his first single since his release from jail “No Time for Sleep (freestyle)”.
