Though it seems unlikely, given his 75-year sentence on charges related to robbery, kidnapping and murder, Amalgam Digital CEO Anyextee says Max B could be a free man in as soon as two years. According to the mogul/rapper a last ditch effort could save Max from spending his life in prison. “We recently sold Max B’s catalog as part of a play to help get him out,” Anyextee recently told DZI. “He and his family were excited about this as the company we sold it to has agreed to put up the required capital to fund a proper legal defense using the defense attorneys that we always wanted to use,” he explained. “It’s possible Charly could be out as soon as two years if the legal team is successful in their strategy. He already has time served under his belt.”
Max was sentenced to 75 years in prison in September 2009 for his part in a botched kidnap robbery that left one man dead. He has since been serving out his time in a New Jersey prison. He has proclaimed his innocence even unsuccessfully appealing the verdict in August 2012. In the mean time, in an effort to keep the Harlem rapper’s name ringing, Any is working on a documentary film about the MC. “I just did a deal for the film I have coming out entitled Charly Rambo: The Max B Story, and you can expect to hear exclusive Max B tracks in the movie,” said Anyextee. “I will also say this, there are still quality unreleased Max B tracks and Pro Tools sessions.”
Before his appeal, Max was optimistic that he would be able to come home and get back to making music. There may still be a sliver of hope for the wavy MC.
