Rap Lyrics Bill in NY State
Now, What About Georgia?

Bobby Shmurda is dancing for joy … literally, now that the New York State Senate has signed off on the “Rap Music on Trial” bill.

The new law prohibits cops and prosecutors to use rappers’ lyrics in court cases. The bill has been championed by the likes of Jay-Z, Killer Mike, Fat Joe, Kelly Rowland and several other artists.

Although the new law would not be enough for Bobby, he spent 6 years in prison for weapon possession. The topic is very personal to him. The lyrics of his big 2014 hit record “Hot Na” made him a target for law enforcement.

While Bobby is excited for things to come, he really hopes to see the rest of the country adopt similar measures … especially in Georgia, where Young Thug, Gunna and 26 other YSL members are fighting RICO gang charges.

Legal issues aside, Bobby is extremely excited — you really have to see his energy — about hip hop having a strong summer. He doubled down on what he’d previously promised during a chat with the “TMZ Hip Hop” crew.

His new visual for “They Don’t Know” is out now and his EP that’s dropping next month will feature his GS9 Records brother, Rowdy Rebel. He also has an LP due later in the summer.

Bobby famously took more prison time to lessen Rowdy’s sentence during the same RICO case … so it’s safe to say they have a huge collab tucked in the vault.
