Max B Granted Appeal For 75 Year Sentence

Max B, who is currently serving a 75 year sentence in prison, was granted an appeal yesterday and has hired a new attorney.

Yesterday, Max B was granted an appeal for his guilty conviction of a robbery which ended in a fatality. The Harlem rapper, who was sentenced to 75 years in prison, has hired new legal representation according to his manager Jolie O'Shay. "He's gonna try hopefully to go back to trial, or get it a mistrial or get it time served, whatever we can do," she said in an interview with XXL Magazine.

The 2006 robbery, which occurred at a Fort Lee, New Jersey hotel, also involved his then girlfriend, Gina Conway, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison and his stepbrother Kelvin Leerdamn who received a life term plus an additional 35 years.

Prior to being sentenced to prison, Max B had signed a three album deal with Amalgam Digital in 2008 and was slated to release his debut album Vigilante Season which never dropped. He had a successful career through his affiliation with The Diplomats and co-wrote several songs including Jim Jones' "We Fly High".

Max B's manager says that he has high hopes for the appeal.

  • hell up in harlem

    its crazy how people acting like this guy is some real once in a life time talent..lol.. all he did was use other peoples melodies and added his own mediocore rhymes.. max b is mediocore at best.. not to mention he tried to front on jim jones, the real boss don of harlem, after he gave him a deal and got him out of jail.. also, i think its safe to say max b is a homo thug... he ain't nothing special, theres alot of better more orginal artist then this dirt ball.. rip to the guy who lost his life because of these dirt balls

    • Shadukedatruth

    • hell up in harlem

      alright.. after listening to alot of max b music that he made since he left byrdgang and listening to alot of jim jones music since then, its apparent these two need each other if they ever plan on having another big hit.. last i checked, even with the 100+ mixtape songs max has made, none of them are that hot, they're ok, some are even good, but nothing that would be a smash.. and the same can be same about jim jones, since him and max spit he hasn't made anything that is really hot either... the fact is they make the best music when they colaborate.. we'll see what happens

    If this douchebag did the crime then he should do the fuckin' time and all these twats that support him should see how dumb they sound, what's he gonna do? Pin on his co-d and fuck off? Wanker!!

    • RowB

      He didn't do the crime, what happened was he told his then girlfriend to steal money from a man, when she went to steal it the situation got out of hand and max's brother who was at the seen with his girlfriend, shot and killed a man. When the case went to trial his girlfriend said that max set up the entire situation(the man being shot and all) so basically he got charged with everything that happened that night.

    Free Max B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hussler

    max b is one of the most talented, underated artists in the game right now. He has a huge volume of music in mixtapes and collaborations. He can sing and rap and he is very ambitious. He got 75 years off one case where the facts were, to say the least, ambiguous. His ex s situation was also very questionable as were her motives for testifying against him and pinning the blame on him, when the facts suggest she was the main player. Lastly, I live in South Africa which has a crime problem bigger than the US and to get 75 years you have to be a serial killer. One murder gets you 15-25, with the conviction having to be beyond reason reasonable doubt. In this case it is very murky as to if he is even close to guilty of Murder 1. FREE MAX B

  • YOUAJOKE

    Keep him in jail he would only contribute to help destroying hip hop

    • whoa

      Yo MEL, STFU!! Max B was and is str8 wack!!! He is wack on the rhymes, his style is terrible, and the fact that he had anything to do with a double murder warrants him to do some serious time. And as far as hip hop goes, when you have no originality with terrible rhymes, and unwarranted swag, it's best to keep your a@@ in the f'in slammer. Keep yo mouth shut about hip hop and go listen to max b's greatest hit.

    • Mel354

      U need to smack ya self fom ur comment. Matter of fact load a gun up n shoot ya self, Nigga max b put out str8 fire, from pd1 pd2 pd3 pd6 i can name a whole book of str8 fire mixtapes he put out. when the last time u herd str8 fire from a rapper like dis in the mixtape game besides when 50 was comin up. smh

  • fucku

    a man like this has such a bright future he should be let the fuck outta there! he's just sitting in there wasting his gift its a shame. i mean this nigga didnt' kill anybody

    • Fuck Him!

      He's wasting it because he threw it away trying to get something for nothing. Fuck him! HE should have been the one to die in the robbery, so 75 years is a blessing. I'm tired of this animal mentality.

  • emobBXboro
