Authorities at Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, LA are reportedly investigating how their inmate, Corey Miller (aka rapper C-Murder), recorded an album from jail.
After C-Murder announced that he and fellow Bayou State rapper Lil Boosie were planning to drop an album called ‘Penitentiary Chances’ this spring and dropping a video for “Dear Supreme Court”, authorities are looking into how the No Limit MC is capable of pulling off all that promo for his forthcoming LP.
According to XXL, spokeswoman Pam Laborde states, “The Louisiana Department of Corrections began looking into how Miller managed to record material from behind bars in January, when reports of a new album first surfaced.”
With a new music video on the scene with protesters holding up signs bearing the words “Free C. Miller” outside shots of the Louisiana Courthouse, the LDC has stepped up their investigation.

Just FYI… inmates are not allowed to record albums or songs while in jail.
C-Murder (born Corey Miller), the brother of No Limit Records founder Master P, is currently serving a life sentence for killing a teenager in a 2002 nightclub shooting.
Miller was accused of shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas on Jan. 12, 2002 at Harvey, LA’s Platinum Club. Witnesses say Miller and Thomas got into an argument and that Murder pulled out a handgun and shot the minor from close range. Thomas later died from his gunshot wound and C-Murder was charged with his death in the same year.
The rapper has an appeal for his case pending with the U.S. Supreme Court.
As you know, being incarcerated has never really stopped rappers from releasing music. Atlanta’s Gucci Mane has managed to release almost 20 mixtapes since going to jail in 2013 for illegal possession of a firearm.
