EXCLUSIVE: CMurder Hunger Strike Update In Angola Prison - Week 2
(AllHipHop Features) Rapper CMurder is in the second week of his hunger strike inside of Angola Prison.
The rapper, born Corey Miller, was convicted of the 2002 murder of a 16-year-old named Steven Thomas, inside of a Jefferson Parish nightclub.
His initial conviction was overturned in March of 2006, after prosecutors were caught expunging the criminal backgrounds of their witnesses, in order to bolster their credibilty in court.

The case went all the way to Louisiana's Supreme Court in 2009, a jury found the rapper guilty, he was sentenced to life in prison and sent to Angola Prison.
In 2014, his lawyers filed an appeal citing the statement of a juror named Mary Jacobs, who admitted she was pressured into casting a guilty vote even though she felt he was innocent.
On January 30, 2018, CMurder told AllHipHop.com that he was embarking on a hunger strike in protest of the way guards are treating the inmates.
EXCLUSIVE: CMurder Announces Hunger Strike To Protest Angola Prison
CMurder dropped a statement off to AllHipHop.com in protest of how he and other prisoners are being treated in Angola.
Representatives for the rapper told AllHipHop.com that CMurder has been punished since speaking out against what he feels are injustices inside of the notorious prison and launching his hunger strike to protest the conditions in Angola Prison.
CMurder has been placed in solitary confinement with no light, in a frigid cell.
In addition to his own mistreatment, CMurder has accused the guards of systematic abuse of other inmates.
His latest round of accusations include:
- Instances of guards placing inmates that are on suicide watch in cells with other suicide watch inmates, and neglecting them.
- Instances where inmates have had shards of glass in their food and have been poisoned.
- Instances where wardens and officials have allegedly falsified documents, made up false allegations to cover-up their wrongdoings, leaving inmates with no other choice but to accept the punishment that they are given.
In his previous statement announcing his hunger strike, CMurder's reps said that in March of 2017, guards placed the rapper in handcuffs for nearly 24 hours in "the hole."
His hands were so swollen, the handcuffs had to be cut off his arms.
According to CMurder, he is very active inside of Angola Prison as he serves out his life sentence.
In addition to playing on every sports team the correctional facility offers, CMurder attends church every Friday, is an avid reader, and also takes care of another quadriplegic inmate named Kentrell Parker.
CMurder says he was enrolled in trade school at the time officers locked him up three weeks ago on contraband charges, which he has denied.
The rapper said he realizes there is a debate over his trial, and whether or not he is guilty or innocent.
But, he says any abuse of the inmates is intolerable under any circumstance.
"I am constantly in danger for standing up and speaking against such a large and powerful enemy," CMurder told AllHipHop.com. "God is on our side. I pray daily. Please thank all of our supporters for this unjust case. The battle is just beginning.”

"Somebody has confessed and they even have footage, that they don’t want to put in the case. My brother is no angel and has done a lot of dumb stuff like most," Master P said. "But I love him and I will fight for him to bring awareness to this injustice. You can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends. When it gets real we all we got."https://www.instagram.com/p/BeyhsURhQxn/?hl=en
"Keep him in Prayers. And if you on the fence. Know that he is 100 percent innocent. Not that it's my brother but it's facts," Silkk The Shocker added. "This system and correctional system in Lousiana is unlike anything u ever seen. When you at least try to be human they want to break you. Will give more details later. But really just a prayer and stay woke."
