Max B (real name Charles Wingate) has been locked up since 2009, he was sentenced to 75 years for a botched robbery, kidnapping and murder. His fans have never left his side during this whole ordeal, and have often purchased the ‘Free Max B’ gear that has popped up. Most famously, many fans have started & signed several petitions to free him. The latest one created asks for 100,000 signatures by December 25, hoping to get him a pardon or retrial.
A new Max website has popped up as well, what makes this one so unique from the others is that this one is officially backed by the Wavy rapper himself.
Check out his recently-released statement below.
“Hello everybody, since my conviction in 2009 life for me as been an up hill battle. By the grace of God, I’ve been given the strength and endurance to keep moving forward. I could not do this without my family and fans so this is my gift to you.
Since my incarceration people have been using my name, my music and my image for their personal financial gain. These blogs and websites are selling Free Max B merchandise and states that the proceeds goes to my legal defense and commissary but the truth is that my family and I, had never received one penny from them. My family is fed up with all this fake supports and had now started legal procedures.
SupportMaxB.com is an authentic website developed and controlled solely by my family and friends. My goal is to make this the one and only official Max B website. Eventually when I get out the domain name will be changed to something more up to date but for now, the sole purpose of this website is to keep my fans updated with my case, raise some money for my legal defense and get the petition signed and reviewed by the government so I can get my conviction overturn.”
