Bobby Shmurda Accepts Plea Deal, Will Serve 7 Years In Prison

bobby-shmurda-7-years

After debating heavily about in court about the stance of Bobby Shmurda‘s murder conspiracy case, it has come to our knowledge that the Brooklyn rapper and his team of lawyers accepted the plea deal where Shmurda will spend seven years in prison and five years probation.

According to TMZ:

Bobby Shmurda just pled guilty in his murder conspiracy case.

Shmurda, has been jailed since December 2014 in a case where more than 15 defendants were charged with various crimes, including murder, attempted murder and drug dealing.

The rapper was originally charged with conspiracy to commit murder and several weapons and drug charges associated with gangs.

According to the deal, Shmurda pled to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon. The other charges were dismissed, and he’ll get 7 years in prison and 5 years probation.

A TMZ producer was in court, and heard Shmurda’s lawyer speak with his client and other defendants, imploring them to take the deal because they’d never get a sympathetic jury and they were facing life in prison. 

Shmurda’s case became a cause celebre, where other rappers were calling for his release. 

Hopefully, Bobby will be on his best behavior during his time in prison with the hopes of being released before his seven year time is up. Much luck to him. We’re praying for him, his close family and friends. This should be a lesson well-learned for the what was a rising rap star.

Troy Ave Arrested and Charged In Deadly Irving Plaza Shooting Following ID In Surveillance Video

Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has been arrested in connection with the shooting that took place last night at New York City’s Irving Plaza during a T.I. concert. Three people were wounded with one of the wounded succumbing to his injuries.

The NY Daily News reports:

“An up and coming rapper from Brooklyn with a beef was charged Thursday with opening fire backstage at Irving Plaza during a T.I. concert, killing one and wounding two others, police sources said.

Troy Ave, of Brownsville, accidentally shot himself during the chaos in the leg, sources said. He was charged with reckless endangerment and illegal weapons possession, according to sources.

Troy, who was to perform at the show, had a beef with Maino, who had just left the stage when at least five shots rang out, sources said.

“There is clear video, very graphic video. He walks right out, women all around, and starts shooting his gun,” a source said.”

The fatal shooting victim was Ronald McPhatter an affiliate of Ave’s B$B Banga and his bodyguard. McPhatter and Ave were apparently close and at this time it is unclear why Ave shot him. The victims mother criticized the Brownsville rapper for not reaching out following her son’s death.

“He actually cared a lot about Troy Ave. My wish is that Troy Ave cared as much about my son as he cared about him. I say that because I watched how my son would always bend over backwards to help him. If he [Troy Ave] cared about my son as much as he alleged he does, I would’ve received a call from him. He didn’t call me. He didn’t call any of my other sons.”

According to Police they were waiting on ballistics report before charging Ave real name Rolland Collins with murder. Collins was arrested at NYU Langone Medical Center. Surveillance footage shows Collins running into the green room and immediately start shooting. You can watch the graphic video below at your discretion.

We send our condolences to the family of Ronald McPhatter and our prayers to the families of the other shooting victims. You can read the NY Daily News complete coverage of the incident here.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. The full video of Suge Knight‘s hit and run alleged fatal accident, the outcome is quite appalling, and very graphic. TMZ has obtained the video of Suge Knight running over 2 men, killing one. But according to Suge, he believes the video exonerates him but prosecutors feel the opposite.

Speaking of the actual video footage, Terry Carter‘s family actually asked that TMZ post the video to show what happened. The family’s lawyer, Gary Dordick, tells TMZ:

“The Carter family is pleased you are releasing the video so the public can see what actually occurred and not be forced to speculate based on third party descriptions of the video.”

TMZ blurred the portion where Terry is run over because it was just too gruesome.

TMZ reported:

Suge drove to a Tam’s Burgers in Compton where Dr. Dre was filming footage connected with the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Suge had been kicked out of another location shoot 20 minutes earlier, and he claims he went to the burger joint to make peace with Dre.

Watch the video carefully. You see Suge pull up and he is almost instantly confronted by Cle “Bone” Sloan, who did security for the film. You clearly see Bone attacking Suge through the driver’s window, when Suge suddenly throws the truck in reverse, clipping Bone with the side view mirror and knocking him down.

You also see Terry Carter — the man who ended up run over and dead — standing near Bone. Terry moves into the parking lot when Suge guns it again, hitting Bone a second time and mowing Terry down, mortally wounding him.

Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge’s lawyer claims Bone and Terry both had guns. Check out the video. As Bone lays on the ground you clearly see another man walk up, remove something from Bone and put it in his waistband. 

Law enforcement tells TMZ … they believe the video shows that Suge could have escaped after hitting Bone the first time by simply driving down the road. But Suge’s people say the group assembled near the truck was ominous and he feared if he drove past them he’d be shot.

We know Suge claims that multiple people in the crowd — including Terry Carter — were threatening to shoot him.

Just wow…

Check out the clip below:

What are your thoughts once seeing the clip?

Was Suge really trying to protect himself and panicked?
