Incarcerated rapper C-Murder has spoken before about his fractured relationship with his older brother, No Limit Records’ founder Master P, but C-Murder has issued a letter from prison, chastising P for turning his back on him and his family. C-Murder is currently serving a life sentence for murder, and according to the rapper and his younger brother, Silkk the Shocker, P has had little-to-no contact with him during his incarceration.
In the letter, which was published by AllHipHop, C-Murder expresses how P’s abandonment has stung and says that he understands now that he can’t trust family.
The Miller family has become increasingly fractured over the years, it seems. Since C-Murder, born Corey Miller, was sentenced to life, Silkk has been a vocal advocate for his brother’s innocence. He spoke about the situation two years ago in an interview with HipHopDX.
“Forget about he’s my brother for a second, what they are doing to him is just wrong,” Silkk said at the time. “And the fact of the matter is that they could do it to you or me. I pick you up, I put a whole bunch of witnesses that don’t exist, I get a judge that doesn’t like me, I get 12 white jurors that hate the name C-Murder, and that’s the problem that we have. Forget he’s my brother for a second, I’m fighting more for [this] to be stopped in our community. And that’s why I think [fighting for justice in] the Trayvon case is a must because they are just sweeping stuff up under the rug.”
Master P is also in the midst of an ugly divorce, which makes this a very tough year for the Miller clan. But earlier this year, P spoke about his estrangement from C-Murder and said that he was saddened to hear C air family business after his brother released the song “Come 2 Da Can” with Lil Boosie.
“I’ve made C a priority while taking care of all of our families in good and bad times, but he got more love for his friends,” P said via statement back in March. “My grandfather told me, ‘If you don’t have a dollar, you don’t got a friend.’ I told C that you shouldn’t be putting out negative music while you’re fighting a life sentence. They’re going to use those words against you. I taught him the music business, it is sad to hear him talk negative about his family and take advice from people who are in it to just get what they can get from him even while he is incarcerated. I love my brother but at times he can be ungrateful and disrespectful.”

“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.
