Bobby Shmurda has released his second set of visuals, which is hard to believe considering the rapid spread of the “Hot N—a” video and its related “Shmoney Dance.” The Brooklyn rapper’s Shmurda She Wrote EP will be released November 10 via Epic, and below you can find the video for the record’s “Bobby Bitch,” which has already inched onto Billboard‘s Hot 100. The clip alternates between shots of Shmurda dancing with models and darker scenes suited to the gunplay-filled lyrical imagery. Schmurda’s interest in guns may be all too true to life; he recently had his bail extended on a felony gun charge stemming from an arrest in June.
