Bobby Shmurda has now quit Epic Records after he complained that he doesn’t have control over his own music. He seems to be quite satisfied with his decision.
Bobby had talked about his frustration earlier on social media and on March 24th. The rapper took to his Instagram story to announce that he has now left Epic Records.
On his Instagram story, Bobby mentioned that he was able to release signed papers with the label and he can drop music whenever he wants. He also mentioned that he made $1 million that day.
“Attention to alll Shmurda fans aka The Shmurdas,” Bobby wrote on his Instagram story. “I just sign my release papers also jus made ah milly today I can’t wait to drop s/o my n-gga @trulife ahh ahh ahh my n-gga I’m shooting my 1st independence video today called getting em back we celebrating all week in KODS pop out nd Monday Starlets.”
In December 2021, Bobby had revealed some of his issues with the label. According to him, Bobby had zero control over his music and that is why he has been very slow with processing his music.
“I ain’t been in charge of my music since I was 19 years old and I just turned 27 and honestly idk when shit dropping,” he wrote on his since-deleted post. “So don’t ask me shit go ask them mf’s since they wanna control everything!!!!!!!”
Bobby Shmurda put up another post in February calling out Epic Records and its CEO, Sylvia Rhone. Bobby mentioned that he had a good relationship with Sylvia but he couldn’t understand why she refused to let him out of his contract.
