Despite being convicted for murder and sentenced to life in prison last month, New Orleans rapper C-Murder is planning to release a new album. C-Murders Calliope Click album is being released by RBC Records and will hit stores on September 29. Sources close to Miller stated that the rapper will be appealing the conviction. "Its amazing that this sort of thing is still happening in 2009. Corey had been hard at work attempting to rebuild his life and career," said Brett Morrow of RBC Records. "RBC believes in Corey and for the local Parish judicial system to attempt to sideline the rebuilding of his life by convicting him unfairly solely based on his race is an outrage."
