Silkk The Shocker recently spoke on his brother Corey "C-Murder" Miller's murder charges and proclaimed the incarcerated rapper's innocence.
With the success of his brother Master P and the legal woes of his brother C-Murder, Shocker recently explained how he learned from them both.
"It's bad," he said in an interview. "I'm the youngest so I've seen it from all angles. I have a sister who taught me a lot. I have a successful older brother. I have a brother who was murdered. I have another brother who is extremely successful. I have a brother that is accused of a murder that we know he didn't do. I can't really speak on his situation for obvious reasons. There's just a lot of stuff going on in his situation with the government and the DA in Louisiana. I know for a fact he didn't do that crime. But because I've seen all these situations it influences me. I live and learn from these situations." (All Hip Hop)
C-Murder pleaded "no contest" to attempted murder charges last month.

The rapper was accused of trying to shoot two men at a nightclub.
Jury selection finally got under way Tuesday in Miller's attempted murder trial, nearly eight years after the rapper allegedly tried to shoot two men at a Baton Rouge nightclub. In the Baton Rouge case, Miller is accused of trying to shoot the owner of Club Raggs and a bouncer. Jury selection will resume today. No jurors were picked Tuesday. Three dozen of the nearly 50 potential jurors being questioned said they have heard of Corey Miller. The trial is expected to last until Friday, state District Judge Tony Marabella said.

Murder is also awaiting retrial in August for a fatal shooting charge from January 2002.
Miller was convicted in 2003, but former Judge Martha Sassone granted him a new trial after she found that prosecutors improperly withheld criminal background information on three witnesses from the defense. The state Supreme Court sided with Sassone in 2006, and she then set a $500,000 bond for Miller and ordered him into house arrest. (WDSU News)
Miller is currently scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday, August 25th.
