(AllHipHop News) Rapper Max B. checked in with AllHipHop.com from prison to issue a stern warning to the Hip-Hop community regarding violence and the street life.
Max B., born Charly Wingate, is currently serving a 75-year prison sentence, for his role in a September 2006 robbery, that turned into a homicide.
In 2009, Max was convicted of sending his ex-girlfriend Gina Conway and his stepbrother Kelvin Leerdam, to rob two men of $30,000 in a Holiday Inn, in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
The robbery ended in the death of a man named David Taylor.
Gina Conway testified against the two men in exchange for an 18-year sentence for manslaughter, Max B. received 75-years and Leerdam received the harshest penalty, life in prison.
Max B., who has been incarcerated since 2007, was hoping to receive another trial, but in August of 2012, his hopes were dashed when an appeals court denied his claims that the jury had been “improperly instructed and handed down an excessive sentence.”
Now, Max is hard a work in mounting another appeal for his freedom.
“It ain’t really nothing to glorify, it aint hip,” Max B. told AllHipHop.com. “Everyday is the same in the system. I’m just trying to go home. I’m working on my case, I’m reading case-law and I am in the library.”
According to the former Dipset affiliate, he is completely focused on his case and is working hard at avoiding trouble while serving his 75-year sentence.
“I don’t really keep up with the prison politics or whats going on around here, I ain’t into that, my thing is getting back to the streets doing what I do,” Max B. told AllHipHop.com. “It ain’t nothing going on in here, just so you all know. This ain’t nothing sweet its real up in here, they trying to keep me, they trying to kill a ni**a. They trying to kill me in here.”
