Corey Miller grew up in a family with influence in the hip-hop industry. His brothers are Master P and Silkk the Shocker, and he is related to the rappers Romeo and Mo B. Dick, and to actress Cymphonique. He launched his first hits on the No Limit compilations and, in 1998, he released his debut album, “Life or Death”, which reached number three on the Billboard 200. His first album went platinum quickly, selling over a million copies.
During his career, C-Murder has released eight albums and worked with various labels. After the first album, he released another three before going to prison – “Bossalinie” in 1999, “Trapped in Crime” in 2000, and “C-P-3.com” in 2001. His best known hit, “Down for My N’s”, featuring Snoop Dogg and Magic, was also released in this successful period. Other famous singles assigned to C-Murder are “Gangsta Walk”, “Down 4 My Niggaz”, “Like a Jungle” and “Wobble Wobble”, released together with 504 Boyz.
Besides writing and performing, C-Murder started building an acting career. He appeared in his first support role in 1997 in the film “I’m Bout It”, followed by two other films, “MP da Last Don” and “I Got the Hook Up”. He also had appearances in two films produced by No Limit, “Da Game of Life”, released in 1998, and “Hot Boyz”, launched in 2000. In the same year, the rapper founded his own record label, TRU Records (Bossalinie Records), which added money to his net worth from several contracts with lesser known artists of the genre.
In 2003, C Murder was convicted for beating and shooting a teenage fan in a club in Louisiana. However, he obtained a special permit from the judge which allowed him to continue his music career and, in 2005, he released his first album from prison, “The Truest Shit I Ever Said”, followed by three more albums, the latest released in 2015.
In 2009, the jury reached a 10-2 verdict in Corey Miller’s murder case, and convicted him of second-degree murder, with a life sentence. Despite all efforts, C Murder and his lawyers haven’t succeeded in changing this decision.
Behind bars, C Murder has written several novels, including “Death Around the Corner” published in 2007, “Red Beans and Dirty Rice for the Soul” and “Bound by Loyalty”, both released in 2014.
