Bobby Shmurda Says People Compare Him To Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Diddy, & DMX
Big things are on the horizon for Bobby Shmurda as the newly-independent artist continues to work on his debut studio album. It has been eight years since his smash hit "Hot N*gga" was first released, and after a stint behind bars, Shmurda is back on the scene and dropping new music left and right. After a hiccup with his label, Shmurda is ready for a new season and fans are eagerly anticipating his first official sonic introduction.
The rapper is known as a figure in Rap who runs on positivity, so he took that good energy to legendary Los Angeles radio station Power 106. During his conversation with host Bryhana, Shmurda spoke about the comparisons he often receives from the public as they pick which Rap icons he reminds them of.
“I get a lot of DMX, P. Diddy, 50 [Cent], and Jay[-Z] sometimes,” he said. Shmurda questioned the comparisons to Hov because of the Rap mogul's temperament.
