Max B is in good spirits as he looks ahead to his long-awaited release from prison, which could be in the next few months.
The Wave God posted a video to social media earlier this week, where he was seen flashing a huge smile as he gave fans an update on his imminent freedom in a phone call from behind bars.
“Y’all know what it is. Shout out to the boy. The birthday boy just checking in. You already know. Man, I’m feeling good,” he said while rocking an icy Jesus piece chain over his prison clothes.
“It’s almost over. Two more joints, n-gga, I’m sliding out. Max Bigavell. 45, I feel good, look good. I taste good, I smell good, n-gga.”

It’s unclear exactly when the 45-year-old is getting out, but if the “joints” he’s referring to are months, that would be closely in line with French Montana’s recent claim that Max B would be freed from prison in April.
“MY BROTHER WAS FACING 75 YEARS .. HE TOLD ME TO TELL YALL HE‘LL BE HOME IN APRIL!!” French wrote on social media earlier this year. “SILVER SURFER Live from the can [wave emoji] Free the Count [100 emoji] ‘LEMONADE’ VIDEO .. Coke Boys 6 OUT NOW ON ALL PLATFORMS.”

Max had his sentence substantially reduced to 20 years in 2016 after taking a plea deal, before announcing three years later that it had been further cut to 12 years.
Max B turned 45 over the weekend and received a call from French Montana, who informed him that he had earned his first gold plaque for his assist on French’s 2013 track “Once In A While.”
“That’s loopy, n-gga. That’s fucking huge,” Biggaveli responded while celebrating the achievement. “That’s going on my wall. That’s my first accolade, man. Oh, man. Thank you, beloved. It’s special, beloved.
“That’s two b-days you outdid me. Damn. That’s two times. City Island, me and you, hit me with the gold record. I gotta catch up, bro. I’ll take it I gotta catch up, man. It’s killing me with the birthdays. You got me emotional, n-gga.”
“Once In A While” served as the cinematic opener to French’s 2013 album Excuse My French and featured a phone call conversation between the close friends and collaborators.
