Breaking News: Max B Found Guilty, Confirms Rep


Former Byrd Gang rapper Max B was found guilty today for his involvement in a robbery that left one man dead.

While the details have yet to be revealed, the Harlem rapper’s rep has confirmed with XXLMag.com that a New Jersey judge has found him guilty. It is unclear how much time he was sentenced to.

Max, born Charly Wingate, was accused of being the mastermind behind a $30,000 heist targeting two wealthy men. Reportedly Max conspired with his step brother Kelvin Leerdam, and his girlfriend Gina Conway, who served as the prosecution’s secret weapon in the case against him. She turned on Max, testifying against Max in return for a shorter jail sentence.

  • KQ

    He got what he deserved.

    Max is going to be saying “Owwww!” a lot in jail once he’s made the prison bitch (and with that long hair, he will be!)

    • Nohomo

      I just goes to show how ppl who do nothing always have some negative to say. you ppl who like to mention how he will be sodomized and basically tortured in jail, are homosexual yourselves and are only reciprocating the same type of homosexual attention you would probably enjoy “YOURSELVES”. If you were going to jail for approx’ 20 years to life on the basis of he said she said, No concrete evidence of wrong doing except for a newly strung out ex-girlfriend, Y’all would break down and cry whole heartedly. Not jump into a dying industry and replenish it with a new look and a new sound with Mixtape coke’ Crack songz and punchlines that overdose. It’s clear hate is a weak emotion, so this is how I’m express my love.

  • DazzOne

    Maybe Max B should drop “D.O.T.(Death Of Twitter”.
    Moment of silence.(Nah-na-nahh-na…)

  • DETROIT

    THIS IS DEEPER THAN RAP!

    i don’t know what he did, or if he did it, but i wish him and his family the best.

    ya’ll niggas that can’t tell the difference between not likin a niggas raps and wishing he does life in jail are clowns.

    • DetroitDraper

    • MOST FOLLOW

      SO MANY FOOLS TALMBOUT HIS GIRL A SNITCH AND ALL THAT.

      NIGGA GOT WHAT HE DESERVED. A PLAN TO ROB GOT WORSE AND A MAN WAS KILLED DO TO YOUR GREED.

      THATS WHAT THUG LIFE IS ALL ABOUT. DO THE TIME LIKE A MAN.

      NIGGAZ ALWAYS THINK THEY ON SOME SCARFACE SHIT, BUT ALWAYS FORGET HOW THE MOVIE ENDS.

      NIGGAZ LIKE THIS ALREADY GOT THEIR MINDS LOCKED UP IN A JAIL, NOW THEIR PHYSICAL HAS COME TOGETHER IN THE CELL.

      GET OFF THAT WAY OF THINKING.
      POSITIVE IS THE MIND STATE.

  • i am legend

    damn max u know u done fucked up right ur man shouldve neva murked em,and yall wouldve just got a robbery charge.

  • Isee

    We should be wishing the family of the dead the best…Money brings the absolute worst out of people…He was on, didn’t have to be involved with nothing but music, when keeping it real goes wrong.

    • T*

      so true

  • i am legend

    damn thats fucked up they shouldnt have killed ol boy just get the money and get the fu** out of dodge a robbery charge beat a murder charge anyday.

  • $ykotic

    Damn. They’re probably gonna give him football numbers.

    Regardless of how he acted or what he really did, it’s still another brother bound for the penal system.

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

    Didn’t he sell his publishing to Jones in order to bail out or something? If so, smh @ a waste of his recording career, which may not exist after the gavel drops @ sentencing.

    All jokes aside, this is sad. I don’t like his music, but I feel bad for his kids. First, daddy’s a rapper. Then, daddy’s in jail. Now, daddy’s going to be gone for awhile. Its sad that nowadays, a “successful” rap career isn’t enough to keep a dude grounded.

    He had to know he would have to answer to that @ some point. Hope he got his affairs in order, because he won’t touch concrete for some time.

    Conspiracy, accessory, robbery; I’m not lawyer but, damn. God bless him.

    i wish homie the best of luck, that system aint no joke…. 1 thing i learned in these streets; never trust no man or woman(not even parents)and never let your right hand know what the left one is doing…. everybody see y jim aint wanna bail him out the first time… nigga always in the middle of bullshit

    Money comes to those who don’t deserve it. Just making dumb decisions in your life. Dude wasn’t no role model or none of that shit to bgin with. Just another rapper caught up in the hype. This is what kills hip hop, stuff like this gives it all a bad image. It’s an industry run by criminals, what do you expect?

  • What the ?

    Damn I liked B, but wtf ? all son rapped about was snitches and bitches and keeping your gard up with snakes in the grass and all that bullshit, then he plots a major crime with some random hoe ? dumb bastard.

  • Jigga Man

    Damn……….Max B……Nooo!! U Were My Hero…….Chrisssssssy!

  • moresickaMC

    Max-B is dumb as f*ck!!!!

    He was on the brink of stardom

    clown

  • http://thepiratebay.org/user/MaxProfit Max Profit

    Wow!!!
    Why would he get his girl mixed up in this. Now he goin to jail because of some cowardly chick.

    It’s a damn shame nowadays loyalty is dead!

    Never like seeing another black man locked up – it’s just too many ni**as behind bars.

    What a waste of potential.

  • Ya Boy

    Owww! That Aint Wavy! Free the big homie Biggaveli!

    I love the way people are making jokes about a man being convicted by the filth.
    And Max has already done 7-8 years inside and came out without a scratch. He’s got a little cash so he’s going 2 be good.
    I wouldn’t wish 6months on my worst enemy let alone 20 odd fukin years with life on parole once released.
    So please shut the fuk up with the stupid comments, you’ve all been watching 2 many movies and don’t know shit about real life.
    And I’ll NEVER buy a XXL again, who the fuk writes the shit on here, get it right at least

  • carolinakid

    And really whats messed up is that a dude had to die over some typical rob and steal. I actually grew up with David Taylor, THE GUY WHO WAS MURDERED, lets not forget. So what if Max loses his career, someone lost his life. Good luck in there.

  • lostgyrl

    I guess I live on a different planet cuz I have no clue to who this guy is or his music. But good example to how New Jersey judges don’t give a fuck. Spigg Nice is doing life for a crime he says he’s innocent of and was convicted in a federal court in Jersey!! Sooo with that being said “Good Luck With That”

  • Gripe101

    All these dudes talking about Max gonna get fucked up in jail. He’s already done 8yrs. He came out with some of the best music of the last couple years. Y’all get so fucked up hating and don’t realise how the judicial system is who you should be hating. Anyone with a career ahead of them like max b never would have wanted to be in that situation. he didn’t pull the trigger. Maybe if Jim Jones shared the cash around and didn’t blow it all on his bitch they’d all be eating.
