This video popped up all over the hip-hop blogs this morning featuring Max B and his attorney, Gerald M. Saluti, discussing Max B’s pending murder trial. Yes, you read that correctly, this is a Youtube video of a lawyer discussing his client’s murder trial.
While I understand it is common for an attorney to speak on their client’s behalf regarding legal matters, this is generally done when the lawyer is actually asked a question that he feels warrants a response, and even in those cases you want to be as brief as possible in answering these questions.
In this case no one is asking questions. If anything, Mr.Saluti is responding to internet gossip, probably something illseed wrote on the Allhiphop rumors page. Furthermore, he goes on for over six minutes addressing these issues.
If there’s a rationale explanation about how this helps the case- I would love to hear it, otherwise I think Max B should start shopping his I’m about to go to jail reality series asap.
