Gucci Mane was freed earlier this year, and this weekend we’ve heard word that another legend is going to be released. Yesterday, Wiz Khalifa tweeted that Max B’s prison sentence had been shortened, and that the original Wave God could be out in 2 years.
French Montana then took to Instagram, posting a screenshot of a text conversation with an anonymous source, who confirmed Wiz’ statement.
Max B was found guilty of robbery charges and murder conspiracy in June 2009, and was sentenced to 75 years in prison. There have been several rumours of his appeal since then, but this weekend’s news is the first to be solid progress.
He released the following statement;
“I would like to take this time to humbly express my gratitude to the Bergen County Courts, The Honorable James J. Guida, and Mr. Grewal of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office for looking into my Post-Conviction Relief. This proceeding was not a question of my guilt or innocence, but about the bad advice, poor judgment, and overall ineffectiveness of my trial attorney. I would also like to thank my legal team at The Law Offices of Bruno & Ferraro; my wonderful attorneys John Bruno, John Bruno Jr., John Lotorocca, and Linda Peterson did an outstanding on my case and fighting for me.
I wanna thank The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. I wanna give a special thanks to my friend and partner Frank Babar and Phase One Network, William Cosgrove, Corey Whitaker, and The Playbook Agency. Without the support of the Phase One team, I wouldn’t have made it this far. I want to thank my boy Masar, Alpac, and my brother from another mother, French Montana aka Mac with the Cheese—I love you bro! Wave Gods till we die!!! To all my fans that been holding it down for me all these years, still banging my music and still keeping it wavy. I love you all and Stay Wavy. Last, but certainly not least, my lovely and wonderful mother Mamaveli, I love you!”
