Max B Is Reportedly Set To Be Released From Prison This Year

French Montana announced the news on Instagram on Jan. 31. 

In 2009, Max B was reportedly sentenced to 75 years in prison over conspiracy charges pertaining to an armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault and felony murder. Seventy-five years definitely seems like a long time, but rumor has it, the rapper may be getting out within the year.

According to French Montana, Max B is set to be released from prison later in 2018. The “Unforgettable” artist announced the news in a post on Instagram on Jan. 31. “Wavyyyy in the joint! Can’t wait till u get home this year," French wrote under a photo of the artist. Unfortunately, French did not unveil a specific release date, but “this year” is still a good sign.

French Montana and Max B have a well-documented relationship. The artist was previously featured on French’s 2017 album, Jungle Rules. But most recently, French spoke to BET about his relationship with the artist to BET. “He’s one person that definitely I learned from, and I feel like he’s one person that’s gifted, probably the most gifted person that I’ve met when it comes to music,” he said. “When he caught his case and the judge gave him 75 years and I was right there with him in the courthouse, he just turned around and looked at me. He took it on the chin like a man. Every time you speak to him, his spirit’s so positive.”

Stay tuned for more information concerning Max’s release. In the meantime check out the throwback photo below.

DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For Copyright Infringement

DJ Paul has filed a multi-million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit against Travis Scott for allegedly stealing his music.

According to TMZ, the Three 6 Mafia member accuses Scott of snatching a portion of the hook from his 1997 track “Tear Da Club Up,” for “No Bystanders” off the 27-year-old rapper’s Astroworld album.

Paul claims that the hooks to both songs are “virtually identical and strikingly similar,” reports The Blast. The lawsuit also notes that the songs sound so much alike that Scott changed his lyrics from to “f**k da club up,” “tear the club up” during his Grammys performance in February, without Paul's permission.

The Memphis native is asking for at least $20 million in damages. However, TMZ reported that Scott reached out to Paul sometime Tuesday (April 23) to potentially work out the legal matter.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper has faced multiple lawsuits over the last two years, including being sued for canceling a music festival performance. Last week, Scott lost a nearly $400,000 lawsuit after being sued for pulling out of a party during Super Bowl weekend. In 2017, La Flame was hit with a lawsuit brought on by a fan who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries during one of his concerts.
