C-MURDER LIFE BIOGRAPHY:
C-Murder was born Corey Miller on March 9, 1971. He was raised from the notorious Calliope Projects in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is the younger brother of Master P, the founder and president of No Limit Records. That explains his membership in the No Limit family, the label where nepotism rules, but he's actually one of the stronger rappers on the label. He may stick to the predictable gangsta musical blueprint, but as a rapper, he had an original style and interesting wordplay that separated him from the No Limit pack.
He is one of many rappers who rose to fame in the mid-to-late 1990s releasing records through his brother Master P's label, No Limit Records. C-Murder made his first recorded appearance as a member of the Southern hip hop super group TRU, a trio that also featured his brothers Master P and Silkk the Shocker. Their first album, True, was released in 1995 and was followed by Tru 2 da Game in 1997. During that year, C-Murder appeared on a number of No Limit releases, including Master P's Ghetto D and the I'm Bout It soundtrack.
In the spring of 1998, he defined himself as a solo artist when he released his solo debut, Life or Death which eventually reached Platinum status. He folowed up his debut success with 'Bossalinie' which followed a year later, going Gold. In 2000, he reached superstar status, first with his appearance in the 504 Boyz smash hit "Wobble Wobble," then with his third and most successful album yet, Trapped in Crime, propelled by the commercial success of its C-Murder/Snoop Dogg/Magic collaboration, "Down for My N's." This album also signaled the launch of Tru Records, C-Murder's new label, which promised to be accompanied by a clothing line and successive releases.
In early 2002, Corey Miller was arrested and charged with killing 16-year-old Steve Thomas with a single gunshot to the chest during a dispute in Harvey, Louisiana, outside now-defunct nightspot "Platinum Club." On October 1, 2003, Miller was found guilty of second-degree murder, which carries a mandatory life sentence.
Although he was incarcerated he still managed to release the album “The Truest Shit I Ever Said,” on Koch Records, and also a music video that featured fellow New Orleans rapper B.G.. The video was made without the knowledge of prison authorities which was much to their disapproval. Bond was initially denied in the case due to C-Murder's use of a cell phone smuggled into the jail which allegedly was used to coordinate threats to witnesses in the case. The Louisiana Supreme Court overturned his murder conviction and accepted his request for a new trial. Miller's attorney, Ron Rakosky, divulged that he hoped to have him out on bond as soon as March 13, 2006.
In March 2006, the Louisiana Supreme Court dismissed his conviction and C-Murder was released on a $500,000 bond. He was originally placed under house arrest pending a retrial on a second-degree murder charge, but after a couple months the judge allowed the rapper to travel in the Orleans and Jefferson Parishes as long as it was during the daytime. An article in a New Orleans newspaper stated that his house-arrest sentence was rescinded because the judge presiding over the case decided that it was too much of a burden on the Jefferson Parish Police Department.
C Miller was recently placed back on house arrest for violating the terms of his house-arrest because he was supposedly caught attending the premiere of the Spike Lee film 'When the Levees Broke'. The judge then ordered him to remain on house-arrest until his retrial is completed. The trial is currently schedule for February 2007.
