Bobby Shmurda, Sha Money XL and members of GS9 were apparently arrested at Quad Studios last night.
Add another gun-related news story to Quad Studios' already-infamousÂ history. The NYC-based recording spot, famous for being the site of the first (non-fatal) 2Pac shooting in 1994, just played host to the police again last night, as Bobby Shmurda and undisclosed members of his GS9 crew were reportedly arrested there.
Karen CivilÂ reports that police confiscated "numerous weapons" from the studio, but it's unclear what exact charges Shmurda and Co. are being brought in on. Sha Money XL, theÂ EVP of Urban A&R at Epic Records who signed Shmurda earlier this year, was also reportedly arrested.
Remember, Shmurda was previously arrested for gun possession in June, so if that's what the charge is again, he could be facing a hefty punishment.
[Update: Video From Arrest Surfaces]
Later in the day, we've got a few updates on the arrests. First off, Wondering SoundÂ got a quote from the "director of public informationÂ in the office of the cityâs special narcotics prosecutor" on the incident. Although she didn't get into the specifics of the charges, she said "These arrests were the result of a long-term investigation.Â My office has a sealed indictment against a number of individuals. The investigation did involve a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking."
Secondly, video of Rowdy Rebel being led away in handcuffs outside of the studio has surfaced. Watch the clip below.
