Bobby Shmurda is paying tribute to Harriet Tubman.
The Brooklyn rapper shared footage of himself getting inked with a portrait of the famed abolitionist. In the clip, Bobby goes under the needle as tattoo artist Daz Léone draws Tubman’s face on his right arm.
“First session of a long project. Welcome home bro. He got some fire on the way,” Léone wrote on Instagram.

Bobby has yet to release any music since returning home, but that may change soon. The GS9 leader has been teasing new music, including a collaboration with J Balvin. “Ima be with y’all inna ‘HOT’ Min,” he recently told fans.
Shmurda was released from New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility in February after serving six years of his seven-year sentence. He will be on parole until 2026 and must submit to substance abuse testing as well as counseling for aggression and anger as part of his parole conditions.
Bobby is also planning to return to the stage. He is set to make a special appearance at Rolling Loud Miami in July.
