Each year, breakout artists with viral singles has become more and more common. But, for the first time, one of these type artists has come from New York City. It’s Bobby Shmurda, from Brooklyn. His career blew up on the strength of his “Hot Nigga” single, which sees daily remixes from major artists.
Bobby Shmurda was quickly signed to Epic Records by Sha Money XL, who talked about this with Hip Hop Vibe last week. After helping build G-Unit Records and the careers of such names as 50 Cent, 2 Chainz, and Game, Sha Money XL knows a thing or two about stars. He said that when he met Bobby Shmurda, he had “it.”
Because of his newfound celebrity status, Bobby Shmurda is often seen everywhere. He recently ran into some other people with history with Sha Money XL in the club. The G-Unit clique, sans 50 Cent and Kidd Kidd was there. They took a photo with Bobby Shmurda that he put on Instagram and now he’s just looking for 50.
