We now know why Bobby Shmurda attempted to sneak a shank into jail. Bobby needed the contraband for protection. Bobby was the victim of a near-stabbing attack at Downstate Prison in Brooklyn after the Bloods gang tried to ambush him, Bossip reports.
The inmate attempted to sneak Bobby from behind during mealtime. Bobby’s quick reflexes allowed him to narrowly escape.
“These are low lives,” Allen DeWane, the family’s spokesman, told BOSSIP. “They think they can score brownie points if they get a star.”
Bobby has since been transferred to Clinton Correctional Facility where he is in protective custody. He’ll remain in PC for the remainder of his sentence.
“Clinton has a special program for inmates in protective custody,” Bobby said.
Bobby’s problems continue to mount. He will be serving more time in prison after he pleaded guilty to an attempt to bring a shank into jail, Bossip reports.
Bobby appeared in court on Thursday, Feb. 2 where accepted a plea deal that will extend his stay in prison by an additional 1.3 to four years. Bobby faced up to seven years for promoting prison contraband.
Bobby is currently serving seven years in prison after pleading guilty in September to charges of 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession, according to Billboard.
Prison guards allegedly saw Bobby’s girlfriend Kimberly Rosseau take a “home-made knife” out of her bra and pass it to him.
Shmurda’s perjury charges reportedly came after prosecutors say the “Hot N*gga” rapper lied to a grand jury about it.
Shmurda’s mother, Leslie Pollard, told Bossip she is going to her son emotionally and mentally ready for the prison time.
“Everything was very unfortunate,” she said. “Now, we’re building up his strength to do the actual time.”
