Wipe the Case Away

Album: Shmurda She Wrote (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • On June 3, 2014, Bobby Shmurda was arrested in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn for gun possession. It is one of a number of run-ins that the former drug-dealer has had with the law. This song finds Shmurda reflecting on his past legal troubles and wishing his attorney could make them all magically disappear:

    I let my lawyer wipe that case away
    Oh, he wiped that case away
