Doggie Diamonds recently sat down with Kenneth Alexander, attorney to Bobby Shmurda, who updated listeners on his case for the young rapper and cleared up some rumors.
Kenneth spoke on being upset with Sony Music because they refuse to take care of his client’s $2 million bail. “They didn’t want to come in and make a bail for this young man,” he said. “They wanted to capitalize on the energy that he had, but they wanted no parts of getting him out.”
The above claims are to be expected from Shmurda’s attorney, but Montgomery was nevertheless eloquent as he discussed what he believed to be the exploitation of his client. “It is my opinion that Ackquille Pollard aka Bobby Shmurda was made an example of,” Montgomery said. “He represents a certain energy that is everywhere in this American space, I think even four corners of the Earth where you have black men who have very little resources and opportunity and they’re taking advantage of what is available to them. I think he was made an example. Whenever you have a prosecutor send out pressers before they make an arrest and a perp walk, then there’s something else going on.”
Alexander also says that being imprisoned has worn on Shmurda. “The toll that it takes on you mentally, physically, intellectually, spiritually so what I say to people also is, you gotta survive in jail,” Montgomery says to Doggie Diamonds. “I’m not in there doing that time with him but he is a survivor and he understand where he is at. It’s unfortunate but he is a fighter and I don’t mean a physical fighter. I’m talking ’bout he has a fighting spirit and he’s doing his best as he possibly can.”
