Bobby Shmurda Explains the Deal He Took for Rowdy Rebel To Get Less Prison Time Bobby Shmurda recently spoke to Maino on his podcast, Kitchen Talk. Bobby told Maino he struck a deal with prosecutors to spend extra time in jail so Rowdy Rebel would get a lighter sentence. Rowdy had a 12 year sentence reduced to 6 years. Bobby struck the deal because he said they tried to use Rowdy against him. Bobby said he could have been home as early as 2017 or 2018.
