C-Murder has some explaining to do.
Prisoners are prohibited from recording albums or songs at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola where C-Murder is serving his life sentence. However, the 45-year-old rapper has released four albums since his incarceration in 2003 — and has another on the way.
C-Murder’s team explained that the songs were recorded before he began his sentence but some of the lyrics have investigators thinking otherwise. C-Murder, real name Corey Miller, dropped a song (and music video) last week, “Dear Supreme Court/Under Pressure.” In it, he says he’s innocent and asks the Supreme Court to retry his case. He also alleges that the jury was bribed. While it’s possible that the track was recorded before Miller was found guilty — investigators are calling foul.
C-Murder also has a collaboration album with Boosie Badazz, aptly titled Penitentiary Chances, coming out next month. Badazz served time in the same prison as C-Murder a few years ago.
Miller been in jail since 2003 after he was convicted of killing a teenager at a Louisiana nightclub. Since then, the case has been through an extensive appeal process. Unfortunately for Miller, he was re-convicted in 2009.
Miller isn’t the first to spit rhymes from behind the bars — Slick Rick, Gucci Mane, Max B and Lil Wayne are just some of the many hip-hop artists who got their music out while incarcerated.
