Shmurda’s dance moves have caused some controversy but Cardi jumped in to shut down the conversation.

After being granted release from prison, Bobby Shmurda has been living his best life. Both he and best friend Rowdy Rebel served years behind bars, and Shmurda was at the beginning of a promising career when he was locked up. His “Hot N*gga” single became a viral success, but it seems that the notoriety made him and his team a target for the authorities.

Since his release, Shmurda has shared several singles and has uploaded photos and videos showing that he’s having a great time, but the rapper has faced criticisms over the way he dances or how he expresses himself. Recently, Cardi B jumped into the conversation to defend her fellow New York artist.
