C-Murder Sentenced To Life Behind Bars

C-Murder has been sentenced to life in prison today (August 15) after being convicted of second-degree murder three days ago.

District Judge Hans Liljeberg delivered the mandatory sentence after the bench voted 10-2 in favor of conviction on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

As XXLMag.com previously reported, C-Murder was found guilty of the shooting that killed 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2002. The initial verdict reached this week was declared invalid, due to Liljeberg’s suspicion that a juror changed his or her vote merely to end deliberations. 

Hours later, the same vote came in, which would become the steadfast verdict.

C-Miller was found guilty in this case back in 2003, but he was granted a new trial when the conviction was overturned. -John Kennedy

      Man it’s crazy the way they are making examples out of the younger generation( Gen X-people under 30) All you see and hear is negative things about Gen-X. I guess as long as they keep poppin pills and pistols people like Bush won’t have to push for population control too much longer b-cuz Gen-X would have wiped itself clean out of existance!!!

    • jburg

      Thats what they say!!! You know what, I hate to see black men put behind bars, but when you make choices like taking a gun to a club and shooting inside the bitch, you get what you deserves. I have no sympathy for him. That young boy he killed will never get his life back, why should C-Murder?

    A shame that it had to go down that way, sometimes “to keep it real” is to use your brain instead of popping heat.

    Too bad the ghetto dont teach that..

    why do fags type pierzy ? get a life

    • Grimey G

      I totally agree that it is really corny when people type “Pierzy” cuz they are the first one to post. There is nothing cool about being the first guy to reply to a blog post, it is not an accomplishment and it is certainly nothing that somebody should take pride in. However to be fair, at the end of the day all of us are douchebags who are commenting on blogs, none of us are acting all that cool.

        Obviously you haven’t if you’ve never realized. Pierzy comments on here alot and i believe guest blogged? people used to say first. now they say pierzy cause first was getting old so there must be a replacement right?

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

          Sort of.

          He was first on like every story/blog on here a few months back. Somebody said we should start saying Pierzy because, yeah, “first” was getting old.

        • Capital G

          What’s good T? I’m gonna have to take the blame for the whole “Pierzy” thing. “First” was played the fuck out and I’m pretty sure it was on a DP blog or when it was Billy X. that I made the suggestion to give the man his due.(I’d try to find it but I don’t care that much, just trust me on this one)

  • giantstepp

    Leave that BS alone because it will get you caught up. This case is a prime example. C-Murder shoulda had his ass in the cut chilln like lil bro Silk. Aint nobody hear a word from dude in years. He got that scrilla from the No Limit days, and is somewhere living the good life. I know P set his brothers up nicely.

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

    Damn shame. Just to play devil’s advocate, I would kind of understand if it was a GROWN MAN attempting to do some legitimate damage to C. Miller’s life in some form or fashion. Self defense/preservation, per se.

    But, the “story” behind the murder, & that footage of him in that club doorway (seperate incident) leads me to believe that this man had some demons that he couldn’t exocisize on his own.

    Now, God won’t have a hard time trying to find him. Or the relatives of that boy either, for that matter.

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands


          Thats not a valid reason why you’d bring up one man when we’re clearly talking about another. Then you said “Black People are Fuck Up!”, which was clearly underthought & underachieved, but I know enough mentally challenged kids to get the jist. Hate yourself if you want, just like you hate proper english usage, but don’t pull “us” into you self-loathing. AND you forgot to *no homo* that “hard” sentence, douche nozzle…-Fail#1

          Crazy checks? Dude, there’s nothing more insane than a (supposedly) grown man who’s unable get a reasonable grip on his vocabulary, especially before typing it out for the world to read & pressing ‘enter’. That takes cajones the size of Cuba. Clearly, all the crazy checks go to you, sir.-Fail#2

          Considering yourself a “big dog” when you are nothing more than a second-rate citizen, without the common sense that God gave an alleycat? Do you even proof-read? I refuse to believe you’re THAT busy/important that you just had to cast your pearls of wisdom before us swine in such a hurry that you deemed such idiotic rambling suitable for reading.

        The trial was not about the club shooting, that was a seperate incident. You don’t get sentenced for life for “trying” to shoot someone.

    C-Miller would have been a much better choice of rap name than C-Murder. Some negroe’s destined for prison no matter what. It’s fucked up, that brothers can get brain washed to the point that they think they SUPPOSE to be in prison. Live Free, Die Free. The penitentiary aint nothing but leagalized slavery. If rappers started rapping that shit, a lot of younger brothers would understand, aint nothing cool or glamorous about being a slave.

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

      ^^^co-sign. Too bad money, fame & reputation are more prevalent.

  • yoprince

    sometimes niggas get shot. sometimes niggas get caught.

    i’m not going to call c-murder dumb. he just did a dumb thing. when you go around strapped, sometimes your finger gets real itchy. if you’ve ever carried a weapon, you probably know this.

    if you get lucky enough, you just have an incident rather than a tragic incident and you learn to keep your shit at home, or not have one.

    it’s sad that it’s so easy for young, angry men with undiagnosed psychological abnormalities (i.e. black boys with absentee fathers and distant mothers) to obtain guns. just think how much fewer of us would be killing each other if we didn’t all run around with guns.


    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

      “it’s sad that it’s so easy for young, angry men with undiagnosed psychological abnormalities (i.e. black boys with absentee fathers and distant mothers) to obtain guns.”

      ^^i feel you, yo [||], but it has to be more to it. @ some point, we, as people have to be held accountable for our actions, on an adult level. A grown man can’t blame all his ill’s on the fact that his (their) parents did a lousy job.

      Case in point, I know quite a few cats that pack, for whatever reason, that have never squeezed. I’ve had niggas hand me their straps & fight.

      Like it or not, it’s the older generations responsibility to be role models. & if you disagree, then you’ll agree that that’s a problem that needs to be adjusted.

      C, & others like him, are very selfish, on plenty of levels, & he (& the others) have to pay for that. I don’t blame guns, because I’ve never seen a gun fire itself @ a helpless person. It’s about the diligence of the owner, illegal or otherwise.

      A lack of a father doesn’t translate into a lack of common sense, & for what it’s worth, now any child looking up to C, & the others, will think that carrying a piece is what’s up, regardless to the price he has to pay.

      Niggas need to be held accountable for their own actions. Especially when they’re obviously old enough to know better.

      People go through circumstances daily where they have to succumb or be in a position they don’t want to be in. Thats life. His is a clear cut case of being sucked into the fiction he created, a self-fulfilling prophecy, & even if his parents were the most negligent ever, thats no excuse to not exercise restraint & integrity.

      • nicholasdelorejo

        Cosign completly. While having no father and a bad upbringing is unfortunate for anyone, no man should recieve some sympathy for recieving the punishment of killing another man in a situation that was not self defense. C Miller chose (not forced) to pull a firearm on a kid at a public surrounding. This guy is proof that not everyone who goes into rap wants to make a better life but a way to further destroy their lives only to now with a soundtrack. I don’t like what he’s done but I do feel sorry for him mainly because he does not have any regrets for killing that kid. That guy must have a messed up veiw on life and I only hope that he can change for the best in time.

  • http://xxlmag.com Leroy Love

    This dude killed a 16 year old BOY in cold blood. Itchy finger or not, theres no reason for a grown ass man to resort to pulling out a gun on a kid. Unless the boy was strapped too and it was kill or be killed. If I’m going head up against a 16 year old, I’m more likely to put a belt to his ass, like in the movie Friday, than bustin shots. You get one shot at life, either make the most of it, or let it rot away like C-Murder bout to do.

    • Nefarious

      Mr. Grand totally right.@ leroy I have the same reaction to this teens today… Still it amazes me how many teens would be willing to fight a grown man.. Im 29, when I was 15, i wouldn’t try to fight a grown man unless like self preservation..lil off topic but…these new teens seem to care less…I wanted to say that-

  • Tre

    yeah homeboy did that shit. I can’t feel bad for niggas who disregard life so little. Sorry. Those type of people should be put in chains and sent to prison. It’s not fair for somebody to lose their life in that manner. It’s the most fucked up plague in the world. And as a black person, if we keep going down this path, we are sure to become an endangered species in 15 years

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands


      15 years? I wish….

      Take a look around us. It’s happening yesteryear. In that amount of time, there’s a 50% chance will be merely an afterthought.

      The onset of communism, racial/community segregation (which loosely promotes genocide), AIDS (black women between roughly 18-27 make up the majority of the increasing infection rate), lack of educational opportunities, declining family values, lack of family structure, desensitization, the judical system, the symbiosis of crime & poverty, drugs & alcohol abuse with no proper help to overcome it…….


      The fact that our supposed role models advocate/promote such unhealthy lifestyles almost guarantees our collective demise sooner than later.

      • NAWLEDGE

        Damn, I completely cosign everything Grands has to say. You should write a book homie.

        Nowadays, we live in a blame-less society. Especially in the black community. All our flaws are blamed on bad parents, projects, “white man”, “they or them”, blah blah blah. Blaming others for all your problems is child like and narcissistic.

        And folks like Al Sharpton and the NAACP aren’t helping to change this Peter Pan syndrome mentality. Its time for our generation to step up and take a good look in the mirror, and maybe the younger ones will follow.

        • Money Magnet 008

          Co-sign the co-sign. Tony Grands, that was one of the most honest & informative posts I’ve read on this site. C-Murder actually asked for this…how do you adopt a stage name like “Murder”? That is just niggerish. And for the record, I AM an educated African American…A BLACK MAN WITH KNOWLEDGE! That alone makes me one of the most feared men in America. Peace.

      • Nefarious

        Shyt Grand… I thought i was educated.. Dog u said symbiosis… I looked at the context clues, but i still read the definition… Excellent way to get your point across mayne-100

  • Tre

    I agree completely with the both of y’all. Somebody has to really step in and say this shit has to stop. Before white folks really figure out how to get away with the whole “No blacks allowed” thing all over again. For anybody to get so angry that they would shoot somebody in hopes of taking their life, that is such a fucking coward move to me.

    A black college professor told me “We as a people will never overcome because freedom made us selfish”. At first I didn’t agree, now I’m wondering if he was right.

    It’s fucked up man. I don’t think anybody should have to live their life wondering if youre gonna get shot entering this club, or even in my home state Colorado, A nigga shot up the mall and hit the wrong person in the head. An innocent girl lost her life

    Why all this bullshit man?


      “We as a people will never overcome because freedom made us selfish”

      Damn Tre I never thought of that. That’s some truth right there dude! And it’s a damn shame too. SMH

    • Nefarious

      @ Tre “We as a people will never overcome because freedom made us selfish”. meaning that everyone’s concept of freedom is diffrent or that once we receive this so called”freedom” we like or love it so much, you dont want others to have, or pursue their own freedom?

Master P changed his life for good because of C, and so did Romeo, he is out ballin at USC on a scholarship…Cats might knock on him but this whole ghetto, hood theme needs to stop…Being gangsta does not make you a man, like to Too Short, get and education and get a degree because the boy gets the money and he gets it fast. Black or Latino, we need to better ourselves…One more note, this gansta rap or coke rap(Rick Ross) is making us dumber…
