Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda was released from lockup Tuesday after serving seven years for conspiracy and weapons possession, authorities said.

Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, was sprung from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora in upstate New York and will be on parole until Feb. 23, 2026, according to the state Department of Corrections website.

The 26-year-old pleaded guilty in connection with his membership in the GS9 gang of East Flatbush. He was arrested in 2014 outside a recording studio in Midtown and police found two guns and crack cocaine in the car he was in.

He was up for parole in September but was denied as because of disciplinary problems. The state Department of Corrections later restored his credit for good behavior.
