Bobby Shmurda is currently serving a six- to seven-year sentence stemming from various murder conspiracy charges in late 2014. Now, the Brooklyn rapper has reportedly received some good news regarding his potential freedom: According to TMZ, the "Hot N---a" artist will be eligible for a parole hearing in August 2020 with a possible discharge date later that year.

The new parole date comes as a result of the 23-year-old being credited with 685 days of time served when he was initially arrested and jailed in December 2014 through his eventual 2016 sentencing. With that information, Shmurda could walk out of Upstate New York's Clinton Correctional Facility in December 2020 if granted parole.

None of this will matter, however, if the "Shmoney Dance" rapper keeps up his behavior behind bars. Bobby has been hit with 11 violations so far during his prison tenure, including possession of drugs, fighting and being caught with a shank, to which he pleaded guilty in 2017. The parole board cites behavioral issues when affording an inmate's freedom.
