Bobby Shmurda needs a good lawyer.

The Hot Ni**a rapper was arraigned and held on $2 million bail in Manhattan on Thursday. Shmurda pled not guilty to charges that he was a member of a  street gang responsible for drug trafficking and several shootings.

Police arrested Shmurda on conspiracy, reckless endangerment, and gun possession on Wednesday after he left a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall. Two handguns and a small amount of crack cocaine were found in the vehicle he was riding in.

He is among 15 defendants, who were charged with crimes including murder, attempted murder, assault, and drug dealing that left one man dead, injured a bystander, and caused chaos outside a Miami nightclub.

According to the indictment, members of the gang used code words, referring to shootings as “sun tans,” firearms as “tone,” “socks,” or “CDs,” and narcotics as “crills.”

Shmurda, who scored a top 10 hit with Hot Ni**a, has been arrested twice before for gun and drug possession. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 8 to 25 years in prison.
