Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards head of the Contractor Music Group based in Ocho Rios Jamaica says, “I am delighted to have them distribute this hip hop album because it allows us worldwide access to more outlets HMV, MTV, HULU and Barnes & Noble.”

Kevin Gates hasn't been behind bars since 2018, but that hasn't stopped him from returning to a prison to visit another rap star inmate.

July 8th, a photo of Gates and C-Murder was uploaded to the incarcerated rapper's Instagram account. In the photos, C-Murder meets with Gates, who covers his face with a stack of cash.

"REAL RECOGNIZE REAL. @iamkevingates came through and hollered at Cee. Nothing but respect for the homie Gates. A lot so call real left the homie hanging. You have to be real when you take time out your celebrity life to visit a homie in the pen. Salute @iamkevingates for the realest shit. #freecee #freeleelucus #freebigmarlo @freecornbread #freemac #tru4life #justice #tru #trudat #trumovement #freecmurder," C-Murder wrote in his caption.

C-Murder, who was born Corey Miller, is still behind bars after he was convicted of second-degree murder in 2009 for a 2002 nightclub killing. His request for a retrial was denied by a judge earlier this year. Judge Steven Enright of 24th Judicial District Court ruled on Jan. 23 that C-Murder's defense did not make a compelling case for any kind of post-conviction relief. Enright said that the recantation of both witnesses' testimonies are "highly suspicious."

Both his brother Master P and his nephew Romeo Miller have been extremely vocal about C-Murder's release even before the witnesses recanted their testimony. Two of Miller’s friends and collaborators, Cuttboy G-Dinero and 2Meka Diaz, submitted his case to Reasonable Doubt, a true-crime show with the TV network Investigation Discovery in August 2017. When the investigators on the show searched for Jordan and another witness, Jordan finally stepped forward to change his story.

“I think he was all of a sudden ready to talk, and I think he saw that show as an opportunity to put the truth out there,” Barker said.

Cuttboy G Dinero says he has a new single with C-Murder coming soon, “Dey Put Da Blame On Me,” which was recorded while Miller was on house arrest before his 2009 conviction. The snippet can be heard here. The song will be featured as a main single on the “Hip Hop Cruises To Jamaica” compilation album.
