Speaking exclusively with Mikey T The Movie Star, Harlem rapper Max B revealed that his prison term could end as early as this summer. In 2009 Max was convicted of taking part in a 2006 attempted robbery in New Jersey that resulted in a homicide. The emcee was given a sentence of 75 years behind bars. But in this new interview Max seems hopeful that his appeal will lead to his release at some point this year.
Max B explained, “The appeal process is done, finally. It’s been done for about a month now. Now what they do is, the prosecutor responds back and you get a letter. They tell you you’ve got to wait eight to 10 months for a response from the appellate court. You might see me in the summer. You might see me at the end of the year. I’m just waiting on the appellate courts, all my paperwork is done.”
Max stated that his plan for survival in prison was just to keep his head down and keep to himself. He expressed that his focus was always on continuing his music career, saying, “I try not to be too popular in this joint; be real humble, stay regular. I don’t want to be too exotic up in here. This ain’t the spot for that. My thing is coming home, back to the family, back to the people and doing what I do best on the real level.”
