Bobby Shmurda takes aim at the "Rats" on his new single.

Bobby Shmurda’s standing on business with his latest release, “Rats.”

Shmurda unveiled a brand new single today that takes aim at the snitches in the world. His new song takes aim at those who’ve failed to stay loyal and abide by the code while also showcasing another side of Bobby. The rapper stretches his vocals out throughout the record to emphasize the pain in his voice, which is rather refreshing in comparison to his previous efforts recently. 

Bobby shared a snippet of the single a few weeks ago, which led many to believe that he was taking aim at Gunna. Since the ATL rapper copped an Alford Plea in his case, while confirming that YSL is a gang, he’s faced an immense amount of backlash. The timeliness of the record indicates that he’s dissing Gunna, though Bobby never confirmed the news. However, the opening bars undoubtedly reflected a similar situation to Gunna’s.

“Heard snitchin’ all on your friends/ Took a plea deal, left the streets real/ but left your dawg in that pen,” he raps.

Bobby Shmurda’s continued to unveil new music over the last few months. Though it took a minute for his comeback track, he released the BodBoy EP summer of 2022 and also indicated that his long-awaited debut album would drop independently. So far, he hasn’t updated fans on the debut project but he teamed up with LouGotCash in October for their joint project, SHMURDAGOTCASH.

Quotable Lyrics
That pain don't ever end
What they played back in that courtroom
Keep playing back in his head, n***a
What all y'all n***as said
What all y'all n***as did
