Bad Boy’s French Montana is keeping fans alerted on the status of longtime pal Max B. The hip-hop heavyweight has shared a personal message from the Wave God.

Going into the weekend, French released a clip of Max speaking from jail about his long-awaited return to music-making.

Recently, rapper Charles Hamilton told SOHH he wanted to make new music with Max following his jail release.

“I would love to produce an entire project for Max B. I understand his demeanor. We had a long talk, actually. He was back and forth between court [in 2009] and had a very long conversation. I just told him I’m afraid for him, I’ll look out for him as much as I can but this is a matter of responsibility. He understood and I was like, “Yo, if there’s anything I can do for you, I got you. But you have to be responsible for your actions.” That’s not to say I believe he’s guilty but sometimes when you’re in a predicament where the people around you aren’t doing the most positive things, you get drawn into it simply to show support.” (SOHH)

Last month, French Montana treated fans to his jail pics.
