You probably read the headline and rolled your eyes. As far as fans can remember, it’s been rumored that Max B would be getting released early from his 75-year sentence for almost three years now, possibly even more. The rapper fought hard each year for the judge to accept his plea deal and petitions, but he was denied each time. However, now, it looks like all our prayers are coming to fruition.

It was first reported by Noisey that the Wave God would be getting released early, following a tweet by Taylor Gang’s head honcho Wiz Khalifa saying:

Max B is coming home. Sentence got shortened. Looks like the Gang will be working wit the Wave

It was almost too good to be true, until Max B’s closest comrade, French Montana, confirmed that the news was indeed accurate via Instagram (see above).

Max B has fought a long hard battle. The Harlem rapper had been charge with 12 counts including first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, and first-degree kidnapping by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey. All charged will be dropped.


max-500Max B shared a statement to fans where he thanked The Breakfast Club, his legal team, and of course his Coke Boy brother, French Montana:

I would like to take this time to humbly express my gratitude to the Bergen County Courts, The Honorable James J. Guida, and Mr. Grewal of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office for looking into my Post-Conviction Relief. This proceeding was not a question of my guilt or innocence, but about the bad advice, poor judgment, and overall ineffectiveness of my trial attorney. I would also like to thank my legal team at The Law Offices of Bruno & Ferraro; my wonderful attorneys John Bruno, John Bruno Jr., John Lotorocca, and Linda Peterson did an outstanding on my case and fighting for me.

I wanna thank The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. I wanna give a special thanks to my friend and partner Frank Babar and Phase One Network, William Cosgrove, Corey Whitaker, and The Playbook Agency. Without the support of the Phase One team, I wouldn’t have made it this far. I want to thank my boy Masar, Alpac, and my brother from another mother, French Montana aka Mac with the Cheese—I love you bro! Wave Gods till we die!!! To all my fans that been holding it down for me all these years, still banging my music and still keeping it wavy. I love you all and Stay Wavy. Last, but certainly not least, my lovely and wonderful mother Mamaveli, I love you!



  1. […] Back in 2016, Max B was able to get his prison sentence reduced after being granted a plea deal for a 2006 conviction in which he was found guilty for murder conspiracy and robbery charges, and was sentenced to 75 years. In an Instagram post, French Montana confirmed the plea deal stating that, “all of Max charges have been dropped and he entered into a plea deal and took aggravated manslaughter. Best case scenario Max could be home in 2 years. Worst case scenario he can be home in 6.” […]
