Young Thug featuring Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel could be appearing in the artist section on your streaming service in the not-too-distant future. The YSL founder and GRAMMY Award-winning rapper took to Instagram earlier today to announce that he’d like to work with Shmurda and Rebel as a reward for their realness, loyalty and principals.

“When they get out I fasho got some for em… real n*ggas are still on earth. Rewards don’t come with keeping it real but in this case it does. Charlemagne was right for once,” Young Thug said in a recent Instagram caption. The photo of Rebel and Shmurda together was displayed underneath another statement reading, “The definition of loyalty and principles.”

Bobby Shmurda could be getting out of prison as early as this week as his parole was scheduled for mid-August per Complex reports. Shmurda has been in custody since December 2014. In September 2016, he was sentenced to seven years in prison after he plead guilty to conspiracy to murder and weapons possession. A New York City judge extended Shmurda’s sentence in 2017 after the rapper allegedly attempted to bring a “sharp metal object” into Rikers Island given to him by girlfriend.

Rowdy Rebel has been in prison for a similar timeframe stemming from the same GS9 investigation from the NYPD. Shmurda notoriously took a plea deal so that Rebel could serve less time. “I did it for Rowdy. They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12,” Shumurda told Complex in a September 2016 interview. “They said the only way they’ll give him seven is if I took seven too. So, you know, I had to take one for the dawgs.”

Rebel also has a hearing scheduled for this month and a conditional release date for December 15, 2020. He recently made an appearance on Pop Smoke’s posthumous project Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon for the song “Make It Rain,” recording his verse through a prison phone.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel’s upcoming parole hearings. In more music news, Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello is releasing his autobiography for $347 USD.
