Bobby Made the Killers Dance

Bobby smiled and said, “Everywhere,” when asked if he had danced in jail. I made killers dance. Everyone has to dance with everyone. We’ll play all kinds of music, like Spanish, pop, and Jamaican. I do everything except rock and country. I just don’t like country and rock that much. Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, jazz, I like.”

Shmurda also told Variety that he felt defeated at times while he was in jail. “Every time I fought with police, that’s when I felt like I lost. I didn’t feel defeated, but, well, I guess I was,” he said. “Because I used to be on some “fuck everything” stuff when I fought the police. When I make a mistake, I want to hurt someone. Yes, I felt like a loser back then.”

Bobby also agreed that jail wasn’t always a bad place to be. He remembers laughing with people every now and then and smoking pot when he “ain’t got nothing else to do.” He also talked about his time in the psych ward when he was 16 years old.

“From 2nd grade through 16th, I took exams. AD/HD My West Indian mom wouldn’t let them give me medications. He needs to shut up. I began using pot thereafter, which was odd but helped. When I smoke pot, I’m like this. Without pot.

Ahhh! Tasmanian. Since I was 16 or 17, I’ve avoided psychiatric hospitals. Because security wouldn’t let me go, I set the place on fire. I couldn’t leave juvenile imprisonment. Motherfuckers. When the needle came out, I stayed quiet. Sorry!
