Rap newcomer Bobby Shmurda pleaded not guilty to multiple charges on Thursday (29Jan15), stemming from a massive gun and drug sting in New York last month (Dec14).

The rapper, real name Ackquille Pollard, was one of 14 members of his rap crew who were arrested after leaving a recording studio in Manhattan.

They were indicted on a variety of different crimes, spanning murder, attempted murder, assault, weapons possession, reckless endangerment, and criminal use of a firearm, among others.

Pollard was charged with conspiracy, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminally using drug paraphernalia.

During a hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday, all 15 defendants pleaded not guilty on a total of 69 charges.

Pollard is being held on a $2 million (£1.25 million) bail along with his associate Rowdy Rebel, real name Chad Marshall. Their attorneys deemed the bails as "excessive" and "extremely unfair", but the judge denied the request to reduce their bail until he delivers his decisions on 22 April (15).
