As Def Sounds previously reported, Max B’s appeal on a murder conviction was denied and his 75-year sentence was upheld with the earliest Max could be freed from prison on parole was 2045.

Although his appeal was denied, Max remains in good spirits and is looking forward to his freedom as he believes that if receives 4 million signatures on a petition to release him from prison, the right people will listen, and he will successful and be pardoned from his 75-year sentence and be released from prison.

In a recent interview with AHH, Max B speaks on his “Pardon The Wave” petition.

The currently incarcerated rapper explains:

We trying to get the petition on ‘Pardon The Wave’ signed. We trying to go at the governor; we trying to go at the president. To the people that’s not signing the petition and screaming ‘Free Max B,’ that’s not wavy. Do the right thing; sign the petition.

Max addresses the appeal:

Right now, I’m on post convictions. I’m still early in my appeal stages. This next appeal could take anywhere from 18 months…it could drag out for 10 years if I’m not on my game. But if I got the support I need, and everyone [does] what they’re supposed to do, I’m trying to get right back to court in the next 18 months to two years.

He adds:

This appeal right here, this is the one. This is kinda better than the first one, because I can come with different legal strategies. I just need the people to come out support the party and support the wave.
