January 22, 2002 12:00 AM ET

New Orleans police arrested rapper C-Murder Friday, and he was subsequently charged with murder in connection with the January 12th shooting death of a sixteen-year-old.

C-Murder (Corey Miller), younger brother of No Limit founder Percy "Master P" Miller, was picked up at the House of Blues in New Orleans' French Quarter and held in connection with a separate disturbance there, as well as an outstanding domestic violence charges.

Police from Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, then issued a warrant tying Miller to the January 12th killing at a nightclub in the town of Harvey. The incident was allegedly the result of a disagreement between Miller and the victim.

As many as 300 people were in the club at the time, but police have suggested that many witnesses were reluctant to come forward given Miller's influence and reputation for violence. In August, the Miller turned himself into police in Baton Rouge, and was charged with attempted first-degree murder after he allegedly tried to shoot a local nightclub owner. Miller was free on $100,000 bond when the latest incident occurred.

Miller is currently being held at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on $1 million bond. No date has been set for an arraignment hearing.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
