(AllHipHop News) With C-Murder fighting a life sentence as he waits on a pardon from President Obama, the rapper and Boosie Badazz have released their highly anticipated and controversial project Penitentiary Chances.
The collaborative project has caused a stir throughout the Hip-Hop community as Angola State Penitentiary officials continue to investigate whether or not C-Murder was able to record while he was in prison.
Sources confirmed to AllHipHop.com that C has been put in the hole (solitary confinement) for releasing the record as well as the ensuing press it garnered, since he’s not supposed to be releasing albums while he’s locked up in one of Angola’s strictest housing unit.
However, Lil Soulja Slim refuted those reports that he recorded the record in jail just weeks ago, when LSS affirmed that the two recorded material while C-Murder was on house arrest.
C-Murder, born Corey Miller, is currently serving a life sentence for the alleged murder of a teenager at a New Orleans club in 2002.
Calliope Bub, one of the prominently featured artists on the project recently spoke about the recording process with AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview as TRU Records prepared for the release of Penitentiary Chances.
“I’m from the same hood as C, and I’ve been grinding with my music so the streets been gravitating towards my music, so it was only right they put me on it,” Calliope Bub told AllHipHop.com. “I just want to give them what I know and where I came from, everybody did they part, now its my turn and they liking what I’m giving them so its only right.
“Just me being in the streets grinding, I wasn’t really rapping much, and I hit the road with Lil Soulja Slim and them so I been around them a lot. When I started rapping a lot of people tripped out and once the music sounded good, everyone started loving it and the name Calliope Bub started getting out.”
When asked how C-Murder was holding up, Calliope said that “its been tough” for C facing a crime he allegedly didn’t commit.
“He going through a situation when you doing that kind of time on something you ain’t do, it’s hard and sometimes how can you keep a good spirit up when you know you ain’t do it,” Bub said about C-Murder’s spirits.
“I pray everyday on this and everything, I stay prayed up. I have a lot of stories to tell the people, I’m more of a storyteller rapper of life experiences, so you ain’t got no choice to like what I’m rapping because its all real,” Bub explained to AllHipHop.com, speaking on his faith and music.
