(AllHipHop News) Incarcerated Hip-Hop artist Max B spoke with AllHipHop.com in recent days about the denial of his appeal, as well as his efforts to establish the "Pardon The Wave" campaign.
Max B's goal is to obtain four million signatures in his effort to be freed from prison.
"We trying to get the petition on 'Pardon The Wave' signed," Max B told AllHipHop.com. "We trying to go at the governor; we trying to go at the president. To the people that's not signing the petition and screaming 'Free Max B,' that's not wavy. Do the right thing; sign the petition."
After three years, Max B says he is in good spirits, and keeping his mind positive after having his first appeal denied. He said he looks at it like the 'first battle in the war.'
"Right now, I'm on post convictions. I'm still early in my appeal stages," Max B explained. "This next appeal could take anywhere from 18 months...it could drag out for 10 years if I'm not on my game. But if I got the support I need, and everyone [does] what they're supposed to do, I'm trying to get right back to court in the next 18 months to two years.
"This appeal right here, this is the one. This is kinda better than the first one, because I can come with different legal strategies. I just need the people to come out support the party and support the wave."
