St. Gabriel, LA – Kevin Gates recently paid a visit to incarcerated rappers C-Murder and Mac at the Elyan Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, Louisiana.
While at the prison, he ran into big homies Lee Lucas, Big Marlo and Cornbread, which he documented on Instagram.
“I went up to the Prison today to visit #LeeLucus #CMurder #Mac #BigMarlo and #Cornbread everybody in these photos have been gone over 20 years – @trucmurder told me tell you all he loves you and oh yea – #itWontBeLongNow #UBitchU ?#imReallyOneADemGenerals #LastADaGangstas #BigDriver.”
C-Murder, who is Master P’s brother, was convicted of the 2002 shooting death of 16-year-old Steven Thomas in 2009. He’s currently serving a life sentence.
New Orleans rapper Mac was arrested for the alleged shooting of 19-year-old Barron C Victor, Jr. and charged with second-degree murder. In 2001, he was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to thirty years to life in prison.
In a 2016 interview with HipHopDX, Mac maintained his innocence and was seeking clemency.
“I just want to be with my family,” he said. “Everything else is irrelevant to me. My son wasn’t even born when I came to prison; his mom was like six months pregnant. So I literally watched him grow an inch taller each time he came to visit. Now he’s gotten tall, his voice done changed.”
Lucas was charged with four counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of armed robbery and one count of second degree murder. He pleaded not guilty to all counts.
C-Murder shared his own Instagram post expressing his gratitude.
“REAL RECOGNIZE REAL,” he wrote. “@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.”
