September 3, 2009 is a date that will forever ring in the ears of rapper Max B. This was the date where the court sentenced him to serve 75 years in prison when he was found guilty of involvement in a botched robbery that resulted in a man being left dead.
As with rapper, C-Murder, a lifetime is too long to be spent behind prison walls and the “wavy” one is planning to appeal his conviction. Legally Charly Wingate, him along with his mother are reaching out to fans and are hoping that their support for the artist in the music will help them in the court system. Setting up a donation Myspace site, fans have had a massive weight placed on their shoulders as they have been asked to give their support for Max while he is in a crucial time.
“Dear Max B Fans,” a posted message reads. “We have been given a second chance to get Max B a new trial. Judge Carroll, the presiding judge over Max B’s case, has given us 22 days to retain a new legal counsel for a new trial. The 75 years sentence will be set aside. If you want to Seriously Free Max B now is your chance to show your love & support. We are urgently asking all Max B fans to show your support by sending dollars to his Legal Defense Fund. If you are unable to send a donation at this time, we are asking that you kindly forward this message to all of your friends on MySpace. Let’s spread the word & really Free Max B. Thanks, Miss Sharon Wingate & Family” Another message reads ‘$1 per fan will get me out of jail.’
The sentence was able to be finalized with the help of his ex-girlfriend Gina Conway who became the snitch once given a plea deal. The deal, however, still found her serving 15 years behind bars for her role in the crime as she was sentenced shortly after Max and his step brother were handed their verdicts.
Well, the message is out for all of the Max B fans out there who say that they truly love and support the rapper. The question is, who will answer the call?
