While C-Murder begins his life sentence in a New Orleans prison, one man is coming forward to promote a more positive image of the convicted killer. Cyrus A. Webb, president of the Shadow Play Entertainment/Conversations Book Club and host of Conversations LIVE! Radio plans to release exclusive interviews and memoirs from his friend, Corey Miller.
He released a statement saying:
“Cee has managed to do something that few in Hip Hop have accomplished. He made it cool to read and to believe that no matter what you have done in your life, it’s never too late for you to make a difference.”
The pair first began corresponding in 2006 via his Myspace, after Miller released his book, “Death Around The Corner.” The pair hit it off and Webb ended up joining him on his book tour.
“I was so impressed by how he shared parts of his life and the lessons he had learned in the book while also writing a story that people of all walks of life could appreciate,” said Webb.
With the help from the president of the book club, Miller went on to sell hundreds of copies of his book and was even named the Most Fascinating Author of 2008 by Webb’s Conversations Book Club. Now that he finds his friend and colleague away for life, President Webb is working to make sure that Corey Miller’s voice will still be heard through exclusive interviews and discussions.
“Because of a gag order, Cee wasn’t able to speak much to the public, but in the videos and radio interviews we are sharing, you get to hear him talk about himself, his work and his convictions. One of the things I have learned from Cee is that he has no problem taking responsibility for what he has done wrong in his life. He has never made excuses, and tries to use his skills as an artist and author to show a better way than what he chose at times. If he says he is not guilty of something he is accused of, I have no reason to doubt him. I just want people to know the man that I got to know through these events and discussions”
