Bobby Shmurda has delivered his first post-prison interview, speaking about his experience behindbars and the turning point of when he decided to take his music career seriously.

In the interview with GQ, Bobby describes a moment in 2016 to be the lowest point and also his reckoning. The GS9 rapper highlights the moment he received a letter from a fan that year and how it gave him the nudge he needed to get back into music, “A six-year-old girl wrote to me; she said I was her favorite rapper… That just let me know the kids are watching me, and I have to be a role model.” He cited that he did not care too much for his music until he went to jail and saw how loyal his fans were, “I can’t name a week that I didn’t see at least 10 [pieces] of fan mail, throughout the whole bid.”

Bobby continues to discuss how “going to prison immediately after blowing up made [him] appreciate just how fortunate he was to have achieved rap stardom.” Elsewhere in the interview, he shared a conversation he had with the late Nipsey Hussle, discussing real estate and financial freedom. Bobby alluded to the last conversation he had with Hussle just a month before his sudden passing saying, “I only had four or five conversations with cousin. His mind was different. He was saying all the things we were going to do when I got out.”

The rapper was supposed to get out in December 2021 but was instead granted conditional release on February 23. He is now under parole supervision and is expected to serve out the rest of his sentence under community supervision.

Upon his release, Bobby has hinted at a few upcoming music collabs; Quavo has mentioned getting a feature from him for Migos‘ highly anticipated Culture III album. Shmurda reassures fans in the interview that he “has something cooking” despite never releasing the Shmurda-Pop Smoke collab.

Though there may not be a new album on the horizon, fans can expect new projects brewing from Bobby Shmurda.

In case you missed it, Pop Smoke posthumously delivered the Boogie soundtrack cut “AP”.
