Bobby Shmurda Phones In From Prison
Bobby Shmurda updates us on how he’s handling prison life in new phone interview with ThisIs50. The 22-year old ‘Hot Nigga’ who was arrested in 2014 on conspiracy and weapons charges says he expects to be out from prison in 2020. “I got two years left,” said Shmurda. “2020, I’m coming out and fucking everything up.”
While Bobby can’t currently unfuck the situation he finds himself in .. he wants the new generation of rappers to learn from his mistakes and stay out of jail.
He also touched on his alleged beef with Tekashi 6ix9ine. “It ain’t no beef, no problems,” he said. “I’ve been hearing a whole bunch of crazy shit. … First of all, I seen all the colors in the hair and all that crazy shit, I started laughing.”
DeMar DeRozan Says Goodbye To Toronto
Following an apology from Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri, DeMar has now officially bid farewell to the city he once called home. The two-time Kia Defensive player of the year took to Instagram to share a goodbye message to Toronto.
DeRozan was traded to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday (July 11) after reportedly being assured by the Raptors that he was a huge part of the team’s future. DeMar responded to the news of his trade on his Instagram story with displeasure saying, “Be told one thing & the outcome another. Ain’t no loyalty in this game. Sell you out for a quick bit of nothing … Soon you’ll understand … Don’t disturb.”
DeRozan clearly feels he was stabbed in the back by his family and he has every right to feel that way. Raptors president, Masai Ujiri during a press conference held on Friday, July 20 acknowledges there was a miscommunication on his part,
to leave it at that … I think maybe my mistake is talking about what we expected from him going forward. DeMar has done so much for this organization. When you’re in my position you always have to be open in what you can do. Both of us had a conversation, and me and DeMar know what that conversation was. Maybe I could have handled it better. That’s what I’m apologizing for.”
Despite owning up to his mistakes, Ujiri insists Kawhi Leonard was too good an offer to pass on. “We have been doing this for how many years? You can’t keep doing the same thing over and over,” he said. “At this point, we got to the level where this opportunity came to us, and we had to jump on it.”
