C-Murder given prison release for grandmother's funeral

C-Murder was granted a brief moment of freedom on Saturday (03Aug13) after authorities gave him permission to attend his grandmother's funeral

The embattled hip-hop star, real name Corey Miller, is currently serving life at Lousiana State Penitentiary after being found guilty of murdering 16-year-old Steve Thomas in a New Orleans, Louisiana nightclub

Miller was permitted to spend the day in mourning with his family and friends at the ceremony but photographs of the rapper posted on Instagram.com proved that he was still under severe restrictions, as he was snapped wearing handcuffs and his prison orange jumpsuit.

The 42-year-old star posed for family photos with his three daughters, hip-hop star brother Master P and nephew Lil Romeo, who later took to his Twitter.com page to show his support for his uncle.

He wrote, "Being able to just sit & have a conversation w/my uncle (C-Murder) was a blessing. We gonna get you home Uncle C! Love ya."
