Master P’s younger brother, C-Murder, was jailed for the 2002 fatal shooting of a 16-year-old fan outside of a nightclub in New Orleans. He has since claimed his innocence unrelentlessly, with at least two serving on the jury saying that they did not feel there was sufficient evidence to prove his guilt.
While he is currently serving a life sentence, the rapper has gotten to work on an upcoming album, aptly titled Penitentiary Chances. The album features the likes of Snoop Dogg, Boosie Badazz and Soulja Slim’s son, Lil Soulja Slim. No comment was returned when the Huffington Post asked about how he was able to record the song from behind bars.
The 45-year-old’s new single, “Dear Supreme Court,” is his latest creative endeavor dedicated to his efforts seeking relief from the legal system.
His storytelling lyrics include lines such as “My lawyer failed / He ain’t keep it real / Kept asking me for money / Had detectives smiling at me in court / But wasn’t nothing funny.”
The track goes on to detail his innocence, with the rapper vocalizing, “I murdered no one / I had no gun / Didn’t know the victim / My position still stands / It’s blatant lynching of the system.”
“This is a plea to the public,” he sings. “Dear United States Supreme, will you please give me justice.”
