Shmurda, 22, has been cooling his heels in jail for the past two years in lieu of a $2 million bond.
His attorney Alex Spiro estimated the rising musician will be out in about 3 1/2 years and “resume his remarkable career.”
He and his two pals Chad Marshall and Nicholas McCoy were busted in December 2014 in connection with a drug and firearm rings, several shootings and the murder of a 19-year-old rival, court papers said.
That year, Shmurda’s hit single “Hot Boy” rose to No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts.
McCoy and Marshall pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges Friday and will also get seven years.
Shmurda is also charged in a separate case out of The Bronx for allegedly trying to smuggle a knife into Rikers Island with the help of his girlfriend and then lying about it before a grand jury.
That case is still pending.
In April, Shmurda filed a false-arrest lawsuit against the NYPD, claiming cops taunted him by singing the lyrics to his songs during his arrest.
He also claims cops didn’t have a search warrant when they found the gun he was charged with having.
