Bobby Shmurda announced a new EP was on the way this summer, but it seems that plans for new Shmurda music are once again derailed.

Shmurda dropped a minute-long clip on Instagram on his side of the rapper vs. producer relationship. The Brooklyn rapper trashes producers for their greed and up charging him for beats. He once again states that he is trying to release new music, but producers are overcharging him. Shmurda explains that producers are sending beats that already feature multiple voices over it. While he can certainly afford it, Bobby expresses that he isn’t paying for production already used by other artists.

He commented, “I’m trying to drop my project but these n***** is asking me clearances, and these f*cking producers is asking for some crazy sh*t. I don’t know what rumors is going around they think that Bobby is just dropping bags this that whatever.”

A quick watch of the video shows just how livid Shmurda is.

Bobby Shmurda vs. Epic Records

After Bobby Shmurda went viral with the single Hot N****, Epic Records quickly signed the Brooklyn drill artist. He reached No. 6 on the top charts with the single, along with successful remixes. From there, his debut studio album was scheduled for a 2016 release.

However, Shmurda received a six-year prison sentence and the album was postponed. His prison release came in February 2021, with fans desperate for new Shmurda tracks.

A year later in February 2022, Shmurda took to Instagram, voicing his displeasure with Epic Records. He commented on how the album was ready to drop and that the company was purposefully prolonging his career. In the post, he called for his release from the company. Epic Records granted his request, with fans now anticipating his independent album release.

Bobby has teased a new EP dropping soon, along with a studio album rumored to feature the likes of Quavo and Rowdy Rebel.
