French Montana further shed light on the situation, saying in an Instagram post that Max could be home in as little as two years.
Max B's publicist issued a press release stating that the rapper had entered a plea deal for the sole charge of aggravated manslaughter, while all his original charges on his 12-count indictment, including first-degree murder and first-degree robbery, will be dropped. No definitive release date has yet been set.

"This proceeding was not a question of my guilt or innocence, but about the bad advice, poor judgment, and overall ineffectiveness of my trial attorney," Max said in a statement.
Max, 38 -- who was signed to Jim Jones' Byrd Gang label back in 2006 -- has stayed in the public eye behind bars, even releasing the song "Silver Surfer," featuring Khalifa, Joe Young and Alpac, on SoundCloud in February. The song followed a brief Twitter beef between Khalifa and Kanye West in January, when 'Ye indicated that he would name his next album (eventually titled The Life of Pablo) Waves. "Max B is the wavy one," Wiz tweeted at the time. "He created the wave. There is no wave without him."
