Bobby Shmurda is staying positive by staying creative.
Bobby Shmurda is making the most of his time locked up. In an interview with XXL, his mother, Leslie Pollard, revealed that he's been working on two screenplays, one about his life as a whole, and one about his experiences since he started rapping.
"He writes a lot of music," said his mother.He’s also writing a script for a movie. He said he has two movie in his head that he’s working on now."
"A lot about of what’s going on now and his early childhood and his friends," she continued. "A lot of people don’t know but, the GS9 is his music label, and the guys that are locked up with him, 90 percent of them are childhood friends since he was 3, 4 years old. He just wants to build a storyline, letting people know where they started, where they came from and how these people are and what they’re doing and what the media is trying to portray them as. He also gave us insight about who, which people he’s going to let play which characters and things of that nature."
Shmurda's mother said that her son is allowed to have a Walkman cassette player and a radio. She also said that she communicates with her son multiple times per day via FaceTime. He was transferred from Rikers to Westchester in October.
While Mrs. Pollard has been able to help her son maintain a positive outlook, the same can't be said about her own morale.
"[I feel] empty. At this point, there’s nothing that I can do. I gave it to God and I know he’s going to come through it, it’s just a matter of waiting it out. Nothing happens before it’s supposed to, so my job as a parent is to make sure he has what he needs and has what he wants to make him comfortable and just to be there for him. Make sure that I can see his face and make sure he’s okay. That’s my job and that’s what I’m going to do from here on out."
