Corey “C-Murder” Miller is currently serving a life sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola for the murder of 16-year-old Steven Thomas. Miller was convicted of the crime in 2009, but the former No Limit Records artist has maintained he is innocent and has repeatedly appealed the verdict.
While C awaits the outcome of the latest challenge to his conviction, he has also suffered through a falling out with his brother Percy “Master P” Miller. The platinum selling rapper recently released the Master P diss track “All I Wanted 2 Be Was A Soldier.”
The song featured C-Murder calling P “unloyal.” C further expresses his thoughts on his relationship with his older brother in an exclusive letter sent to AllHipHop.com.

“All I wanted to be was a soldier, like P”
We all must learn lessons before dying. My ultimate lesson was giving loyalty to those undeserving. Yes, I learned the hard way. Incarceration has opened my eyes to see deceit through pitch black darkness. I was taught and raised that your bloodline will be there through thick and thin. Even when the entire wicked world and fake friends condemn and abandon you at your darkest moments. And being in prison for life, means until you die. Until your heart stops beating and your body turns cold.
This is a time to come together and support, unconditionally. Not for finger-pointing and ridicule. Even as I truthfully and passionately claim my innocence, I’m forced to entertain the blasphemy and silly lies of the one I believed in and looked up to the most. Who not only betrayed me but turned his back on my kids. My three angels who keeps blood pumping from my heart, throughout my veins. My sincere message to you as you read this is: Trust no one but yourself. No-one deserves your total loyalty, a smile can be deceiving in many ways. Be your own leader. People change and you can never know someone’s TRU identity or agenda.
I will never change, break or fold. I will always be TRU. It’s my life, my way of thinking. My World!
If my last breath was to come this minute, I’ll be buried as a man among men. Loyal to a fault. But I will rest in peace. Feel Me?
I am smarter and much wiser now. Why? Because I have truly learned my “Lesson Before Dying”
These are the truest words I ever said.
C-Murder will go before another judge in November. Earlier this year, his lawyer filed a post-conviction relief application in the 24th Judicial District Court.
Attorney Rachel Conner is claiming C did not get a fair trial partly because a juror in the 2009 case has stated she and another juror where pressured by other jury members to vote for a guilty conviction.
The Miller team also alleges the trial judge forced the jury to reach a verdict after the 12 person panel originally was unable to come to a decision. The jury later came back with a 10-2 decision to convict. In the state of Louisiana, a 9-3 vote would have resulted in a mistrial.
C-Murder’s previous appeals have been denied.
