Over five years ago, Max B saw his street buzz swell and it looked like he was going to have a breakout year. By 2009, Max B did have his name all over headlines, but it was due to a murder case. This led to him being sentenced to 75 years in prison and outrage throughout the hip hop community.
Giving up is something neither Max B nor are his fans. They have continued to fight for Max B’s freedom as the years go by. In 2012, Max B filed an appeal with the courts to have a retrial, but the appeal was denied and there have been talks of starting a petition.
Now, people have gotten together and they have started a petition to make Max B a free man, so he can continue to make his music. His name has stayed strong and reached commercial appeal. French Montana has worked to keep Max B’s name going, featuring his vocals on his Excuse My French album.
