Incarcerated rapper Max B has confirmed recent reports of being freed from contractual obligations to Dipset's Jim Jones.
Despite bad blood in the past, Max said he still wished the best for Jones and his camp as they officially break ties.
"Vigilante Season coming this September, it's gonna be a real big thing, I can't wait, I feel good," Max said in a phone interview. "Finally, I'm out that business with Jim. I wish you guys success, hopefully we can still be civilized about the situation but um, I'm free baby. You already know, Vigilante Season this September. The sh*t is gonna be real wavy. Be on the look-out man, Max Biggaveli...It's a new feeling, daddy. It's a new feeling, I'm blessed, I told you they can't stop it, it's gonna happen regardless. You know, I'm just gonna be a real grown-up about it, like I said, I wish these guys the best success and hopefully they can meet me at the top. You already know, I'll meet you n*ggas at the top man. The top feels so much better than the bottom. [laughs]." (Anyextree)
Reports last week claimed a judge ruling freed Max's publishing rights from Jones.
Despite being behind bars Max B recently got a reason to celebrate. Yesterday (May 26) a judge ruled that Jim Jones no longer has any rights over the incarcerated rapper or his work, making way for his long-awaited album, Vigilante Season, to drop on indie Amalgam Digital. Reps for label told XXL that the judge ruled the Harlemite has fully performed his obligations under both his 2005 recording contract and 2007 songwriting contract with Jones. Basically that means the Dipset Capo has no claim over any music recordings Max created with Amalgam, including songs used on Vigilante Season. (XXL Mag)
Max previously spoke on his relationship with Jones last June.
"Nah, Jim ain't reach out," Max said in a phone interview. "I'm waiting for him. I'm trying to get this Vigilante Season out so hopefully he can reach out to me and get a check together. You know, shout-out to Jim Jones. I want a check, lets get a check...I had fun man, this has been the best two and a half, three years of my life. I did so much. I was stuck in the contract and I still somehow slipped through the crack and became successful. I go to bed with a smile on my face every night." (G-Unit Radio)
He is currently serving a 75-year term behind bars.
The ex-girlfriend of rap artist Max B has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for her role in a deadly robbery at a northern New Jersey hotel. Gina Conway was sentenced Friday, one day after Max B , whose real name is Charly Wingate , was ordered to serve 75 years and his stepbrother, Kelvin Leerdam, received a life term plus 35 years for their roles in the September 2006 robbery in Fort Lee. Prosecutors said they and Conway , who took a plea deal and testified against the pair, plotted to rob two men she had recently met. (The Associated Press)
