2021 has been a busy year for the GS9 duo following their lengthy prison bids. Rowdy Rebel got right back in the studio hours after his release and dropped songs with NAV, CJ, Funk Flex and more. In an interview with Complex, Rebel revealed he had a catalog full of music available but was advised by his team to focus on his forthcoming album allegedly named Rowdy vs. Rebel.
Bobby, on the other hand, has yet to release new music or be featured on any songs despite promising fans he would have something ready for them real soon. During a visit to Maino Presents: Kitchen Talks on April 15, the “Hot N-gga” rapper revealed he worked with DaBaby, Quavo, 42 Dugg, Lil Uzi Vert and possibly Jay-Z for his highly-anticipated studio project.
While fans wait for Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel’s proper return to the music industry, their concert with Davido should hold fans over. It’s been a very long time since either of these two men hit a stage and it’s sure to be a moment for them and their fans once the event kicks off next month.
