Being behind bars won’t stop rapper Bobby Shmurda from throwing his support behind Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid.

Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, has been in jail since December 2014, who prosecutors have accused of heading up a Brooklyn-based tied to drug dealing and shootings.

Pollard, who has since moved from Rikers Island to Rockland County Jail, told Vibe magazine he’s supporting Clinton for President because he believes she has the best interests of the public in mind.

“I like Hillary because she’s for the people, they’ve said that women can’t run the country, but I feel like she’s more independent. She’s got a strong mind state,” Shmurda said.

The 21-year-old rapper wasn’t thrilled at the possibility of the bombastic Republican front-runner Donald Trump becoming President, telling the magazine, “I don’t want him as our president. The things that be coming out of his mouth is crazy, “Donald Trump’s I don’t care, but he’s an a–hole.”

Shmurda is set to stand trial next month. In January, he recently had a request to have his bail reduced to $2 million denied by a judge.
