Following the release of his breakthrough single “Hot N*gga” in 2014, Bobby quickly gained recognition as a trailblazer in the realm of Brooklyn Drill Music. However, his promising superstardom came to an abrupt halt when he faced legal repercussions. The rapper’s legal trouble resulted in his conviction on charges of third-degree conspiracy and weapons possession.
In September 2016, Bobby entered into a plea deal, admitting to conspiracy to possess weapons and possession of a weapon charges, linked to his association with the GS9 gang. Initially facing a seven-year sentence, he received credit for two years served prior to the final judgment.
During his time behind bars, Bobby accumulated a total of 11 infractions, including makeshift weapons, drug possession, and physical altercations. However, he eventually regained his freedom and was released from prison in February 2021.
