Although his current situation does not look promising, former No Limit Records rapper C-Murder has applauded Young Buck's recent release from serving time behind bars.
Murder hopped onto his Twitter page to congratulate Buck Marley for getting back his freedom this week.
"Welcome Home Buck @youngbuck #TRU," Murder tweeted October 9 which was shortly followed up with a re-tweet from Buck's Twitter page. (C-Murder's Twitter)

Last fall, reports surfaced and claimed Buck wanted his 18-month sentence nixed.
Nashville rapper Young Buck wants a federal court to toss out his prison sentence. The rapper, whose real name is David Brown, is currently in a Mississippi prison after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. However, he claims the 18-month prison term handed to him is a "complete miscarriage of justice." Brown claims he couldn't have been a felon in possession of a firearm, since a previous felony conviction was expunged from his record. Brown was also involved in a bankruptcy case that led to the IRS auction of thousands of dollars' worth of his belongings earlier this year. (News Channel 5)
Over the summer, photos of C-Murder, still wearing a prison outfit, at his grandmother's funeral started to scatter across the Internet.
C-Murder was granted a brief moment of freedom to attend his grandmother's funeral over the weekend. C-Murder--whose real name is Cory Miller--was given permission to leave the Angola State Penitentiary, where he was captured in several photos enjoying some time with family members. The incarcerated rapper is currently serving a life sentence for a second-degree murder charge stemming from a club shooting several years ago. Miller looked to have some restrictions, though, as he was shown still handcuffed and wore an orange jumpsuit. However, his brother Master P and his nephew Romeo were happy to see him in good shape. "Being able to just sit & have a conversation w/my uncle @iamcmurder was a blessing. We gonna get you home Uncle C! Love ya #bestmoment #ripbigmamma," Romeo wrote on his Instagram. (XXL Mag)
In February, Murder had an appeal rejected by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has passed up another chance to deal with an anomaly of constitutional law that requires federal juries to reach unanimous verdicts in criminal cases, but allows states to make different rules. The court on Tuesday rejected the appeal of the rapper known as C-Murder, who is serving a life sentence for killing a 16-year-old fan in Louisiana. A jury voted 10-2 to convict the rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller. Louisiana and Oregon are the only two states that allow for non-unanimous convictions for some crimes. (US News)
