Max B Freed From Obligations to Jim Jones, Vigilante Season on the Way

Despite being behind bars Max B recently got a reason to celebrate. Yesterday (May 26) a judge ruled that Jim Jones no longer has any rights over the incarcerated rapper or his work, making way for his long-awaited album, Vigilante Season, to drop on indie Amalgam Digital.

Reps for label told XXL that the judge ruled the Harlemite has fully performed his obligations under both his 2005 recording contract and 2007 songwriting contract with Jones. Basically that means the Dipset Capo has no claim over any music recordings Max created with Amalgam, including songs used on Vigilante Season.

As previously reported, the Max was sentenced to 75 years in prison on September 3, 2009 for orchestrating a 2006 robbery that left a man slain in a Fort Lee, New Jersey hotel. Although he was recently granted an appeal, Max has yet to get a court date.

In the mean time, Vigilante Season is now in the clear for release. Stay tuned to for more details as they develop. —Brooklyne Gipson
