10 Lyrics Proving We All Saw Bobby Shmurda's Gun Charge Coming
Not even Bobby Shmurda could've expected how much he was going to blow up when he dropped "Hot N*gga."
After taking over the whole rap game with just one song this summer, it seemed the sky was going to be the limit for the Brooklyn product.
That was, of course, before he and his GS9 crew were arrested for possessing "numerous" weapons while in the studio earlier this week.
They now face a very serious indictment dealing with New York's strict gun laws, but this wasn't an isolated attempt to take down the up-and-coming rapper.
It turns out this was all part of an ongoing investigation by the NYPD to take down one of the most dangerous street gangs in Brooklyn.
Bobby Shmurda is truly about that life and, unfortunately, that life is already catching up to him. At just 20 years old, he's seen the pinnacle of success and sadly, he might've seen the last of it, too.
These 10 lines from his hit song are incriminating enough:
"And Chewy, I'm some hot n*gga"
"Chewy" is one of Bobby's nicknames. In fact, "Chewy Shmurda" is what the NYPD identified his street name as. Off the bat, he claims to be a "hot n*gga," which means he is popular for either his ratchet or illegal activities.
"We keep them nine millis on my block, n*gga"
Bobby Shmurda and GS9 hail from East Flatbush, Brooklyn. He says everyone there is strapped with a 9 millimeter, which would match the NYPD's report.

"Monte keep it on him, he done dropped n*ggas"
Monte is one of Bobby Shmurda's GS9 boys featured in the music video.
Like Shmurda says everyone else in East Flatbush does, Monte keeps a burner on him. The lyrics point to the fact that he may have used it to kill someone around the time the song was recorded.
"Running through these checks 'til I pass out"
Bobby Shmurda has seen a lot of success and made a lot of money in a short period of time.
Unfortunately, this line may have foreshadowed a recent incident when he wasn't getting all of his money from performances, and he vented about it on his Instagram account.
"I been selling crack since like the fifth grade"
In one of the most controversial lines of the song, Bobby admitted to selling crack cocaine when he was just in fifth grade. He told Complex,
Yeah. I was running with older guys, my brother and [his friends]. So by the time they was doing stuff, I was doing stuff. So they was in like 9th grade.
"Jaja taught me flip them packs and how to maintain. Get that money back and spend it on the same thing"
Bobby says someone by the name of Jaja first got him into the crack-selling game.
Packs usually refer to pounds of drugs, which he would immediately get more of once he made his sales.
"That's what got my daddy locked up in the dog pound"
Bobby Shmurda spent his childhood between Brooklyn and Florida, where his dad is currently locked up. The young rapper said,
My daddy locked up down South. Basically, if he wasn't locked up I would have been a Florida kid. When my daddy got locked up, my moms moved up here. But my grandparents still there, my uncles still down there, so I be flying back and forth. I'm kind of a mixture [of North and South].
"GS9, I go so hard, But GS up for my gun squad"
GS9 is not only the name of the notorious Brooklyn street gang, but Bobby's current record label. And yes, they have guns.
"And bitch if it's a problem we gon' gun brawl. Shots popping out the AR"
If things ever got too poppin' with Bobby's crew and a rival force, he says he'd have no problem engaging in a shootout.
Furthermore, he also admits in these lyrics that people in his gang have AR-15s, one of the deadliest assault rifles in the world.
"Mitch caught a body 'bout a week ago, week ago"
In the most emphatic line of the entire song, Bobby refers to his homie, Mitch, who he claims killed someone about a week ago.
