Shmurda also once again lost a bid for bail. His bail was originally set at $2 million, and he has yet to cover the cost required to exit from jail. Shmurda and 14 other defendants have been incarcerated since their arrest in December of 2014.
The 21-year-old Epic Records artist acquired a new attorney as well. Alex Spiro of Brafman & Associates will now be handling his case. Spiro appeared in court with Shmurda on Monday to argue his client should be released prior to trial.
Special Narcotics Prosecutor Nigel Farinha reminded the court that Shmurda has been denied bail at least four times. Farinha claims the accused performer has a net worth of half a million dollars and ties to individuals in Florida.

Rihanna calls Rachel Dolezal “a bit of a hero,” speaks on relationship with Matt Kemp.
As part of her cover story with Vanity Fair, Rihanna touched on her past relationships, including ones with crooner Chris Brown and professional baseball player Matt Kemp.
In regards to her relationship with Kemp, she says she was merely dating the athlete when the paparazzi began to portray their relationship as more than what it was. She recalled being “uncomfortable” at the amount of attention their relationship received from the paparazzi.
After speaking on Kemp, Rihanna admitted that she felt that she could change her ex, Chris Brown. She also revealed that she was at one time very protective of the singer.
Lastly, the songstress explained that she currently has no relationship with Brown, but will always care about him.
“I was very protective of him,” Rihanna said while speaking about Chris Brown. “I felt that people didn’t understand him. Even after … But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation you’re the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I’m willing to put up with something, they think less of you—because they know you don’t deserve what they’re going to give. And if you put up with it, maybe you are agreeing that you [deserve] this, and that’s when I finally had to say, ‘Uh-oh, I was stupid thinking I was built for this.’ Sometimes you just have to walk away…I don’t hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies. We don’t have much of a relationship now.”
During her interview, Rihanna was questioned about a former hot topic when she was asked to share her thoughts on Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who attempted to pass as black. She called Dolezal “a bit of a hero” for waking people up and shaking up society.
“I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit,” she said. “Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up.”

Helen Mirren, the accomplished stage and screen actress, just turned 70.
And with that milestone, she announced she's done with on-screen nudity.
Her quote about it is pretty funny:
“I was doing nude scenes [from] the first moment I started doing movies… . It was the era… . It seemed to be nothing to get your knickers in a twist over. That’s the good thing about getting older. You don’t have to do that sort of thing any more… [Now] my pleasure pillows are purely for my husband.”
Back in 2011, when Helen hosted Saturday Night Live, they even did a skit about what you'll no longer see.
