NEW YORK (AP) — Bobby Shmurda, a once up-and-coming rapper thanks to a hit music video that popularized the “Shmoney dance,” was paroled on Tuesday after spending more than four years behind bars for a drug gang conviction.

Authorities confirmed Shmurda was released from a New York prison amid speculation about whether he would attempt a music industry comeback.
