After spending little over five and a half years in prison as part of a plea deal in which he reluctantly pled guilty to a pair of weapons chargesBobby Shmurda was reportedly eligible for release on Tuesday, the same day as his 26th birthday.

However, Complex shared that Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Jean Pollard, will participate in a parole hearing in New York during the week of August 17. If all goes well, there's a strong chance he'll be released. If not, the latest he'll get out is December 2021.

Longtime fans have been nothing short of ecstatic about his potential freedom, helping his name trend for almost an entire day. Many joked about the return of the fitted cap he seemingly tossed into the stratosphere in the video for his breakout hit "Hot N***a."

You also can't forget about Shmurda and his GS9 associates previewing "Bobby B***h" in the studio, unofficially marking the beginning of the snippet era, as well as his legendary performance of his verse from Rowdy Rebel's "Computers" for his label Epic Records.

Another reason Shmurda is being celebrated is due to his loyalty to Rowdy Rebel. He took seven years on his plea deal instead of five to knock Rowdy's sentence down from 12 years to seven as well. Too real!

"I [took the plea deal] for Rowdy," he said in a 2016 interview with Complex. "They offered me five and offered Rowdy 12. 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."

Ironically, one of Shmurda's most recent features was on 6ix9ine's 2018 track "STOOPID." There hasn't been much info surrounding plans for new music, but the public appetite is undeniable.
