Bobby Shmurda is celebrating Thanksgiving outside prison walls for the first time since 2014 … and doing so by giving back to those less fortunate.
The rapper was in Brooklyn Wednesday night to help distribute 300 turkeys at the Marlboro Houses, an area with residents in desperate need of assistance. We’re told Bobby spent several hours there, chatting it up and taking pics with volunteers and those who came through for groceries.
Following the bird giveaway, Bobby made his way to an outreach program in Ridgewood in Queens to talk with troubled teens. Bobby, joined by Rowdy Rebel, talked to the kids about their experiences in prison and just how important it is to stay out of trouble.
As for how the whole night came to be, we’re told Bobby and his team first reached out to Maurice Ballard, who runs a nonprofit called Game of Life.
Bobby was first taken into custody in December 2014, but copped a plea deal in 2016 to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon. He got credit for around 2 years of time served before the sentence.
Shmurda was released in February of 2021, but will be under parole supervision for the next 5 years until Feb. 23, 2026.
