(AllHipHop News) In January, AllHipHop.com broke the news that incarcerated rapper C-Murder is set to partner with Boosie Badazz for a joint album titled Penitentiary Chances. Then earlier this month, AllHipHop.com premiered C-Murder’s “Dear Supreme Court” music video. According to reports, the New Orleans native’s decision to release vocals while behind bars could land him in trouble.

The Louisiana Department of Corrections is currently investigating how C-Murder (born Corey Miller) was able to record the music. Prison officials questioned C-Murder, and he claimed that all of the songs were recorded before entering Angola prison.
However, lyrics from “Dear Supreme Court” suggest they were written after he was convicted of murdering 16-year-old Steve Thomas, but officials could not find any conclusive evidence the song was created while C-Murder was in the facility. He apparently refused to take a polygraph test.
C-Murder has maintained his innocence, and his attorneys are challenging the conviction. The TRU member is hoping his life sentence gets vacated and he is given a new trial. The appeal is based on witnesses now saying C-Murder was not involved in the fight at the club the night Thomas was killed.
