Hot Boy

Bobby Shmurda

July 25th, 2014

Bobby Shmurda's been selling crack since, like, the fifth grade. He knows how to keep his business going--make the money, then put it back in. He goes hard with all his boys and the cops don't intimidate them in the least. He's the big dude on campus and no one messes with him (if they do, they get dropped). He really wants his friends to get out of jail though.
