Music mogul Master P — born Percy Miller — weighed in on the contract dispute between Lil Wayne and Bryan “Birdman” Williams in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. He’s also asking President Barack Obama to pardon his brother, Corey “C-Murder” Miller, and his former record label-mate, McKinley “Mac” Phipps Jr., saying the evidence shows that both men are innocent.
“I got a brother in prison. I could’ve been there but I changed my mindset. He’s in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, but it’s the mindset. He named himself C-Murder. Back in the day I was like, ‘Dude, you can’t do that.’ I could’ve named myself something crazy, but I wanted to master what I do,” Miller said.
He continued, “I know Obama been pardoning people… This is my letter to the President. When you look at Corey Miller, he’s not a bad person. He’s somebody that I love. Yeah, he’s not perfect. Maybe he did some things in his past, but right now, he’s in prison for a crime that he didn’t commit. The things that he did, he paid his dues for the crimes that he did in his past. Everybody has a childhood, nobody’s perfect. I feel like the system locked in on him and targeted him… Even to me he’s done some crazy stuff, but I love him. We’re blood.”
