(AllHipHop News) When Bobby Shmurda was arrested in 2014, members of the “Hot N*gga” rapper’s crew were taken into custody as well. One of those GS9 associates was Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall.

Some fans and other artists expressed concern that neither Shmurda nor Rowdy were bailed out by Epic Records which signed the Brooklyn natives last year. Epic Chairman/CEO L.A. Reid recently stated during an interview that he does not believe the label is responsible for artist’s legal matters.
Rowdy Rebel spoke with Revolt by phone from jail, and the performer credited as the lead artist on the YouTube hit “Shmoney Dance” spoke about Epic Records.
“I didn’t expect Epic to get us out, because at the end of the day we’re not the best of friends, they just signed us to their company,” said Rowdy. “They don’t feel the pain that my family and friends feel, but on the business side, they did invest in us. They don’t really owe us nothing.”
Even though Rowdy is still incarcerated and awaiting trial, he revealed plans to release a mixtape in the near future. The project is titled Schmoney Keeps Calling.
