Incarcerated rapper Corey "C-Murder" Miller has spoken on spending his time behind bars after being sentenced to life in prison last summer.
According to Murder, he wants fans to take note of his current situation and use it as motivation to live a better life.
"I'm holding up pretty good here at Angola [State prison in Louisiana]," C-Murder wrote in a letter. "I work out regularly and participate in all sports leagues. Of course I hate it, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. Life is short and the time you waste in jail can never be replaced. I'm asking you guys to take heed to my situation and better yourselves to live a positive and productive life." (All Hip Hop)
Former No Limit Records artist Mystikal recently spoke on Murder's legal woes.
"I haven't had a chance to speak with [Master P] since I been back though," Mystikal told DJ Whoo Kid in an interview. "I ain't get a chance to holla at him yet. I hollered at C before his [case] went the way it did, you know. We gonna see if we can work on that too, I can't let him sit in there like that. He still got some breathing room, he got a little fight left in him." (Radio Planet TV)
Master P spoke with SOHH last fall about his brother, C-Murder, doing time behind bars.
"Your image can get you incarcerated and take a lot of things away from you," P explained. "I think he realizes that right now and he definitely will be fighting an appeal but it takes times. It might take two to three years. He's innocent from his crimes, everybody knows that but that goes to show you how your image and all the stuff from your past -- it makes others think 'Oh, you know this guy's name is C-Murder, so he's guilty.' They don't even look at, 'Oh you wasn't in the club, you didn't pull the trigger.' Man, your image can really describe your life." (SOHH)
C-Murder's financial issues have reportedly landed him the help of two Harvard attorneys who have agreed to assist with his appeal.
Though Miller himself has no income, property or savings, two Harvard lawyers have come to his defense, declaring him indigent so that he may make his appeal and access court records at no cost. The cost for the case records is $20,702, which Miller is unable to pay. His hearing is set for Dec. 10, but he also faces a civil suit for the teenager's death. (The Boom Box)
