In 2009, Max B was found guilty of murder conspiracy and robbery charges and sentenced to 75 years in prison.
Multiple appeals have failed, but it looks like the waviest of rappers has just caught a huge break, and he could be out of prison in as few as two years.
Max's boys French Montana and Wiz Khalifa announced the news:
Max B is coming home. Sentence got shortened. Looks like the Gang will be working wit the Wave. — Wiz Khalifa (@wizkhalifa) September 16, 2016
Max's reps confirmed the info:
We are pleased to announce new developments regarding the prison sentence of influential Harlem rapper Max B. The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey initially sentenced Max B to a seventy-five (75) year prison sentence back in 2009, but with recent changes, including a new legal team and new management, a favorable agreement has been reached. Following a lengthy Post-Conviction Relief process, Max B has agreed to enter into a plea agreement for the sole charge of aggravated manslaughter. The original charges on his twelve-count indictment, which included first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, and first-degree kidnapping, will all be dropped. As we approach a definitive release date, details and terms of his plea will be disclosed.Max also released a statement:
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.”
