Former No Limit rapper C-Murder, who is serving a life sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, launched a hunger strike on Tuesday (January 30). He’s specifically targeting Angola Prison, Assistant Warden Barrett Boeker, Warden Darrel Vannoy, The Department of Corrections and the secretary of the DOC James LeBlanc because of the prison’s “inhumane” conditions.
In a statement obtained exclusively by AllHipHop, C-Murder, who is the brother of both Master P and Silkk the Shocker, specifically referenced Boeker who was arrested for second-degree rape in December 2016, and has received numerous complaints from prisoners due to harassment and physical harm.
“I am now on a hunger strike to fight these injustices against my peers and against myself,” he said. “Only in Angola can a warden be arrested for rape and continue to serve as an officer in this Louisiana penal system. This warden has an abundant amount of harassment, racism, and physical harm complaints against him from other inmates. We need an internal affairs investigation now.”
Miller’s conviction is the second time that a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder. A jury convicted him in 2003, but the presiding judge at the time, Martha Sassone, awarded Miller a new trial, in finding that prosecutors withheld the background information on three of its witnesses from the defense. The state Supreme Court upheld the decision in March 2006, clearing the way for a second trial. During the trials, Thomas was described by his father as a fan of the rapper and his brother Percy “Master P” Miller.
