Although C-Murder is behind bars, the former No Limit soldier is making sure his voice gets heard in his new video for “Dear Supreme Court,” which is from his upcoming album, Penitentiary Chances.
In the video, C-Murder proclaims his innocence in a murder case involving a young teen. The veteran rapper is serving a life sentence for allegedly shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas in cold blood at a Louisiana nightclub in 2002.
His case launched a prolonged legal battle which led to a re-trial in 2007, but once again a jury convicted C-Murder (born Corey Miller) and he was shipped off to Angola where he’s currently serving his sentence. The rapper already had two appeals denied and the Louisiana Supreme Court upheld his conviction.
An insider told AllHipHop.com that President Barack Obama is now taking a look into the case; so there’s still hope that C-Murder could get a presidential pardon before Obama leaves office.
After releasing his confessional video, C-Murder posted a message thanking his fans and everyone involved in the making of the visual. It reads:
I would like to thank Ira Sandles with Streetbred Clothing, Hiram Clarke, Cartoon Tutor Babi for the cartoon videos, Joseph Patterson (C-Murder look-a-like) for all his help, SoundTrendsLLC, Mike Shahin my video engineer, Calliope Bub, TRU, Too Short, RBC, Snoop Dogg and BoosieBadazz for their work on the album, Ms Deb – New Orleans, Uncle Ant, Big Pokey, Lil Soulja Slim, The Calliope Projects (CP3), Big Stews GFX, my TRU-Bossalinie artists, team, family, fans and supporters.
