Miller is alive and well AllHipHop.com has learned.
The rapper was incarcerated in a prison in Gretna, Louisiana
when Hurricane Katrina struck on August 29. The hurricane produced the worst
natural disaster in United States history.
“C is alive, he was shipped off to Angola,” a source
close to Miller told AllHipHop.com. “He personally said he’s alive
and doing OK.”
The Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola is known as one of
the roughest prisons in the country, housing the state’s most notorious
and violent criminals.
In earlier published reports, Miller’s older brother, mogul
Percy "Master P." Miller stated that he didn’t know the whereabouts
of his brother and his expressed concern for his safety.
Yesterday, officials started transferring almost 1,000 inmates
out of flooded prisons. Some prisons were flooded so bad, inmates were forced
to flee for their lives.
US Marshals took a batch of inmates to a federal prison in Florida
and another load is slated to make the trip today (September 9).
In related news, Senators from Arkansas have introduced legislation
that would require criminal background checks for all that have fled to the
state after being displaced by the hurricane.
It is estimated
that at least 1 million people have been displaced from Hurricane Katrina and
have been forced to flee to other parts of the United States to take up refuge.
