Rap and jail time have had a close relationship ever since the Fat Boys rhymed about doing time for holding up a pizza place.

Unfortunately, prison bids have stymied many promising careers over rap music's history. For every Tupac "out on bail, fresh outta jail, California dreamin'" there's five rap stars whose careers never recovered after doing time.

After recent arrests in connection with gun and drug charges, Bobby Shmurda and several members of his GS9 collective may find themselves wandering down this same path, if they're not careful (and it could very well be unavoidable judging the seriousness of the charges).

HNHH hopes the "Hot Boy" hitmaker doesn't end up in the same boat as these once rising stars....
