Shmurda Said "Think Of The Children!!!"

Bobby Shmurda's time in prison appears to have completely shifted his views on rap, as he is now claiming that the genre is "dangerous" for the youth

Bobby Shmurda has made some major changes to his life ever since he got out of prison in 2021, seven years after his jump to fame thanks to the likes of tracks like "Hot N*gga" and "Schmoney Dance". Nowadays, however, the Miami rapper appears to have stepped away from rap in general, providing his reasoning in an interview with The Danza Project podcast.

"These kids are following you guys, and you’re rapping about these f*cking lifestyles…and it’s very dangerous to the communities [because] these little kids [really] think that [it’s] going on, and you did not even live [any] [of] [it]," Shmurda argued.

Continuing: "Rap is supposed to be telling muthafuckas to go from negative to positive, coming from poverty to go to riches…and how to stay in that and how to change. That’s the shit that I want to hear. I wanna hear about living life."

Check out the clip of the podcast here:

Shmurda claims that he has been instead listening to reggae as of late, and has only been willing to listen to rap while in the club.

While some may take offense to Shmurda's position against rap, one could interpret his reasoning as him not being against the genre overall, but rather the trajectory he believes it's taken, and he simply would prefer that a new trend in the genre/industry would take place.

Still, some may listen to Shmurda's words and feel some sense of betrayal given his own contributions to rap, as well as perhaps feel his argument to be somewhat of an echo of sentiments preached by those opposing NWA and the rap genre's general burst in popularity during the 1980s and 90s.

Regardless, Shmurda has certainly making drastic changes to his life for the sake of betterment, and so long as he content with himself, perhaps that is all that matters.
