Rapper Bobby Shmurda is released from jail and celebrates by getting a Swiss-made fake Rolex Sky-Dweller
Rapper Bobby Shmurda wasted no time after being released from a six-year prison stint to make sure that his wrist game was back on point. What did he first put on? An iced-out Swiss movement replica Rolex Sky-Dweller, of course.
Bobby Shmurda, born Ackquille Jean Pollard, was jailed more than half a decade ago with several other members of the gang GS9 for weapons possession and conspiracy to commit murder. The sentence was handed down in 2014 just as Bobby’s hip-hop career took off with the smash hit Hot Ni**a, which peaked at No.6 in the Billboard Hottest 100 list.
He was released at the end of February this year to the excitement of the hip-hop community, and was immediately greeted by rapper Quavo, who arranged a celebration in his honour. As reported by GQ, who clinched the first interview with Bobby Shmurda on his first day out of jail, he was greeted with racks of designer clothing, a barber and a new chain gifted by fellow rapper, Rowdy Rebel. But that wasn’t all.
He was also presented with a Rolex Sky-Dweller fake with champagne dial that appears to be fully set with aftermarket diamonds. The copy watch was reported not to fit his wrist immediately thanks to all of the muscle bulk Bobby gained while in prison.
Bobby’s original release date was scheduled for later this year, but good behaviour during his incarceration won him conditional early release. Despite all his new acquisitions, he enjoyed his first night of freedom in responsible fashion. At a club that evening, Bobby pointedly turned down offers of alcohol and stuck to juice instead, explaining that he was still on parole.
