MMG’s Meek Mill and his Dreamchasers artist Omelly decide to release a 10 minute freestyle over various instrumentals in the streets of Philadelphia.
Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, the middleweight boxing contender who was wrongly convicted of a triple murder in New Jersey in the 1960s, has died in Toronto, according to Win Wahrer, the director of client services for the Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted.
Carter, 76. died of complications from prostate cancer, Wahrer said.
He was profiled in the 1975 Bob Dylan song “Hurricane” and a film entitled “The Hurricane” starring Denzel Washington, who was nominated for an Academy Award.
Carter spent 19 years in prison before a federal judge ruled in 1985 that he and John Artis, who was with Carter on the night of the killings, did not receive fair trials and released them. Artis was with Carter when he died Sunday morning, Wahrer said.
Carter’s rapid-fire combinations and punching power earned him the nickname “Hurricane” and, by 1963, The Ring Magazine had rated him number 10 in world rankings. In 1964, Carter got a title shot against middleweight champion Joey Giardello. But he lost in a 15-round decision.
