According to reports, Harlem rapper Max B has been granted an appeal on his murder charge.

The incarcerated rapper's manager, Joli O'Shay, told XXL that Max has been granted an appeal, has hired a new lawyer, and is currently awaiting his appeal date. "He's gonna try hopefully to go back to trial, or get it a mistrial or get it time served, whatever we can do," said O'Shay.

On September 3, 2009, Max was handed down a 75-year sentence for his role in a 2006 robbery that left one man dead in a Fort Lee, NJ hotel. The rapper was charged with counts of felony murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, armed robbery and conspiracy.

According to XXL, Max's manager said that she speaks to him daily, and that he is feeling positive about his upcoming appeal.
