Miller adopted the stage name C-Murder and began his music career in the early 1990s as a member of the rap group TRU (The Real Untouchables), alongside his brothers. In 1995, he signed with No Limit Records, the independent label founded by Master P, which was instrumental in popularizing southern hip-hop.

He followed this success with a series of albums, including "Bossalinie" (1999) and "Trapped in Crime" (2000), which further established his gritty, hard-hitting style.
