(AllHipHop News) With his name being stirred up in the recent Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa saga a few months back, and with his French Montana collaborative Wave Gods project out, Max B is continuing his push for freedom.
In doing so, Max B has launched a line of hoodies that feature a side profile of Max B and a “Free Max B” emblem on the bottom right corner.
Each wavy hoodie has a front pouch and is a heavy blend sweatshirt by Gildan.
The no-pill hoodies have double-needle stitching with a double-lined hood, set-in sleeves, rib knit cuffs and a spandex fitting waistband.
The artist rendering was done by Ozzy Oz Da Vyrus who has also done work for the incarcerated Bobby Shmurda.
It appears the hoodies are already getting support as Wale Tweeted out a link for the sweatshirts in support of Charly Wingate aka Max B.
In addition to the hoodies, Max B has t-shirts that feature Max B with his hands held high and handcuffed.
Below the caricature is a quote that says, “Hip-Hop Isn’t Dead, It’s Behind Bars.”
The hoodies are priced at $80 a piece and t-shirts are priced at $20. There is also a packaged deal that includes Blue Ray discs of the Wavy Baby Volumes 1-3 and all three of the t-shirts for $50.
The move for the clothing line comes just several years after a 2013 lawsuit in which Dame Grease exclusively told AllHipHop that Amalgam Digital filed a court order to prevent Max B’s clothing release with clothing brand CKDOUT.
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.”
All proceeds from the hoodies and t-shirts go to the Free Max B organization petitioning for 100,000 signatures to get an official response from the Obama administration.
