Recently, scribe-on-the-come-up Tony Centeno was granted an interview with the incarcerated Bobby Shmurda about his ongoing trial. For the time being, the Brooklyn rapper still remains behind bars with little info on what the law plans for him. He’s currently just trying to keep hope alive and his mind free.
During their convo, Bobby opened up about what he says are “dirty cops” trying to bring him down, why he rocks with Hillary Clinton, his upcoming trial and more.
Recently, new court documents say that you believe the 3 cops involved with your arrest are have a history of lying. Can you elaborate on your claim?
Yea man, I told everybody the cops that locked me up — they’re dirty. I’ve known the cops since I was 11-12 years old. They’ve been dirty for forever. They were trying to tax me for money. They tried to put guns on me. They tried to do a whole bunch of stuff.
That’s awesome. Now I don’t know if you’re in tune with the presidential election or not…
Oh no, I’m gonna say one thing! Y’all better not have Donald Trump as our president.[Laughs] We cannot have Donald Trump as president. I’m going for Hillary, [Clinton] man. Not Donald Trump.
What do you like about Hillary Clinton?
I like Hillary more because she’s into the people. You know they’ve said that women can’t run the country but I feel like she’s more independent. She’s got a strong mind state. But Donald Trump’s an asshole. I don’t care, but he’s an asshole. I definitely don’t want him as our president. [Laughs] The things that be coming out of his mouth is crazy.
I know there have been a few people who have tried to get you out. Martin Shkreli made a scene out of his attempt to post your bail. What’s your message to these people who have yet to come through for you?
Well I know this [Shkreli] situation. He can’t even bail me out because of his situation. I ain’t even get to talk to him but he can’t bail be out anyways because of his situation.
They’re going to say he got locked up for fraud. He’s not even legit enough to bail me out. But besides that, a lot of people came and tried to bail me out but they all trying to offer me shady deals like power of attorney, publishing deals… The only thing I’d give up is management.
Now, two people came through but the D.A. found something wrong and said the property was not $2 million, or wasn’t enough. It was a bunch of b*llshit. But besides that, it’s all love for trying. I give an “A” for effort.
I know the last time we spoke, you said you want to get into politics or social activism upon your release.
Yeah, after being in jail this long…if anyone knows me, I’m not one of those crazy, uptight celebrities. I talk to people. So I started learning about peoples’ cases. I’m seeing people get locked up for murder they ain’t even do.
Last time I was in court, I was with somebody who was taken away for 8 years. They gave him time served because they gave him 25-life. They just took 8 years away from somebody’s life for something he ain’t even do. They’re doing this to hundreds of people with no voice. I want to start being the people’s voice. They took this dude away from his family for 8 years.
I felt so sorry for him. He said he had two little girls outside, and they took him away from his family for 8 years. I know how that feels growing up without my father. That’s crazy.
