Bobby Shmurda Says Deal With Epic Records Is Officially Over

Bobby Shmurda is no longer apart of the Epic Records family after pressuring the company for his release according to a report on Complex.

He was a huge hit when he ended up in prison and fans expected his return back to society would garner a huge comeback. His music is still played from back then with the single “Hot N***a”  in clubs and radio. This had people with expectations of getting another banger on the way, but this has not been the case. 
Instead he has received backlash for his newfound dance moves that have been criticized for being a bit feminine.  One of the main reasons why he hasn’t put out a project yet is because of his deal with Epic Records. Last month he told his followers that the label was holding him back and refusing to release him from the label.
“I got a 70 year old lady running my label and I love her dearly but doesn’t want to let me go at alllllllll,” he wrote. “No matter what I do I’ve been sign to them since I was 19 I did six years in jail trying to get off this label before I came home you name one person in the industry a lable [sic] keeps sign in jail for six years???? … Yeah IK IK I made them more millions than they ever gave me!!! Just let me gooo.”


The rapper previously expressed his desire to leave the label just as he inked a management deal with Roc Nation. However, it seems like the label problems are no longer present. The rapper took to Instagram announcing that he’s officially signed off on his release papers.

“Attention!!!! To all Shmurda fans aka the Shmurdas. I just sign my release papers also jus made ah milly today,” he wrote. “I can’t wait to drop s/o my n***a @Trulife ahh ahh ahh my n***a I’m shooting my 1st independence video today called Getting Em Back we celebrating all week in kods pop out nd Monday starlets.”
