As reported by REVOLT, Shmurda’s conditional release date was previously bumped up to February 23, which is ten months ahead of the end of his sentence. After being denied parole by a judge, the Time Allowance Committee overturned the decision and granted Shmurda a conditional release due to his good behaviour and participation in programs while behind bars.

Two years later, the Brooklyn native pleaded guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession and was sentenced to seven years in prison.
