Incarcerated rapper Charly “Max B” Wingate recently gave fans an update on his condition behind bars and where his relationship with Jim Jones currently stands.
Still under contract with Jones, Max said the Byrd Gang leader has not yet reached out to him since being found guilty of murder conspiracy charges earlier this month.
“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)
Max previously gave his first phone interview since being found last week.
“Shout-out to [Gerald] Saluti, he did a great job,” Max said in a phone interview. “He did a great job with the trial, you know it’s unfortunate. It’s Bergen County. I thought the jurors had me but they didn’t, you know. Them h*es got weak at the end…I ain’t even got to talk, I’ma let my music talk and fight this sh*t from in here…Sounds like I’ma get that appeal bond, appeal bail and we gonna jump out this motherf*cker like Tupac…I went so hard on my enemies this year it was pathetic…I had a dream me and T.I. came home at the same time and just ran in the studio and made a hit. Shout-out to T.I., hold your head brother…I wanna settle all the differences with my enemies, I wanna tighten this sh*t up with [Jim Jones], get this sh*t squared away so we can fall back and start getting some checks before hopefully this sh*t get outta hand and turn into a Biggie and Tupac situation and we don’t need that.” (Hip Hop Stan)
Max associate French Montana recently revealed a conversation between Jones and the jailed rapper prior to him being locked up.
“He’s gonna have to let him off that contract,” French told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom. “Jim’s gonna have to give it up, ain’t no choice. He ain’t got no choice, what you gonna do, let him rot? He got a son, he got a wife, he’s got family…We had a slight conversation, actually, Jim was ready to work it out a day before Max went in. They spoke, Max told me. He was getting ready to work it out…It was actually the people around Jim and the people that’s around us [who made the call happen.] They called them because we were just trying to fix everything up ’cause my guy was under that contract and it was really hurtin’ him. If [paying off his contract] was what was needed to get done, I was gonna do that…Jim was trying to work it out and I was like let’s do it.” (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
The guilty verdict has caught the attention of fans and rappers alike including Tony Yayo.
“It’s an unfortunate thing that happened to Max B,” Yayo said in an interview. “He just had a kid. I f*ck with Max. I f*ck with French [Montana]. I think he had bad representation with his lawyer. What lawyer do you know that’s gonna do a blog with you? That’s when I think everything got messed up. That blog f*cked it up. You know I’m always in trouble. When I have a case, I don’t do no press, nothing. If you don’t got a lawyer there telling you, ‘Shut the f*ck up,’ you’re f*cked up. The lawyer was wack. Your lawyer wants to sit there and do a blog with you? [Max’s] lawyer may not have been the one to handle a homicide.” (MTV)
Max is reportedly due back in court for sentencing on Thursday, July 30th.
