Rowdy Rebel Released From Prison
Rowdy Rebel has been released from Collins Correctional Facility. The Brooklyn rapper had been incarcerated since 2016 when he agreed to plead guilty to one count of third-degree conspiracy and one count of weapons possession. He’ll be under community supervision until December 15, 2025 at the latest.
Rowdy Rebel burst onto the scene as part of Bobby Shmurda’s GS9 collective. The group broke out in 2014 with “Shmoney Dance” and “Hot N—a.” Rowdy Rebel and Bobby Shmurda signed deals with Epic Records, who released the rappers’ collaborative “Computers.” In December 2014, the rappers and other GS9 members were arrested and accused of operating a violent street gang.
Bobby Shmurda was recently denied parole; his sentence is scheduled to end in December 2021. This past June, Rowdy Rebel featured on the late Pop Smoke’s “Make It Rain.”
