September 16, 2016

On Friday, Wiz Khalifa announced on Twitter that Max B, the Harlem artist who influenced a generation of rappers, will soon be released from jail. A representative for Max B confirmed the news in a statement and shared thanks from the rapper as well.


"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!"

Max B's longtime collaborator French Montana shared the news as well. "It's official," he said on Instagram, "Max B will be out in two years. And if he act like Max B in there, he'll be out in six." According to texts reportedly from French Montana obtained by Revolt, Max B took a plea deal which dropped his charges to aggravated manslaughter. Best case scenario max could be home in two years," he wrote. "Worst case scenario he can be home in six." According to a New Jersey reporter at the hearing today, the official release date is actually closer to 2025.

Max B collaborated with French Montana on the Coke Wave mixtape series (as well as 2016's Wave Gods from prison) and appeared on Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo on "Siiiiiiiiilver Surffffeeeeer Intermission."
