Often shouted-out street hero Max B, who’s currently serving a 75 year sentence for helping set up a robbery that left a man dead, is getting ready to publish his autobiography. B is currently searching for a publisher, as much as one can search for anything from a prison cell, but he has some ideas about who he’d like to work with. Via All Hip-Hop:
Max B’s book “The Wavy Baby” will take a look at his life growing up in Harlem, how he came to rap and his life prior to his 2009 conviction, for his role in helping set up a robbery at a Fort Lee, New Jersey hotel, that left one man dead.
“I want the book out, hopefully I can get it out by next year some time [and] get it under a nice publishing company like G-Unit or Cash Money,” Max B told AllHipHop.com. “Everyone can get something out this thing and we can support the cause of me getting up out of here.”
He’d also like rappers to spend less time writing “free Max B” lines into their songs, and more time working to free him.
“There’s a lot of ‘free Max B, free this, free that’” Max B told AllHipHop.com. “The support that I’m looking for, it don’t really seem how I want it to be. I got people that’s supporting, but I need that real support.”
Although Max seemed disgruntled with the lack of support he is receiving, the rapper did express gratitude for the support he has received from Hip-Hop megastars Jay-Z and Drake.
“I’m thankful, shout to Jay-Z. I always respected Jay-Z and loved his music, same with Drake,” Max B told AllHipHop.com. “I appreciate it cause them guys don’t even got to do it, but its all love. At the end of the day I’ll be very thankful if them guys can reach out to their assistants or whatever, just tweet. Sign the petition, I need them strong names on there.
B had his most recent appeal denied back in August.
