Weeks after Corey "C-Murder" Miller was sentenced to life in prison, the rapper has drawn 10 more years in prison for firing into a Baton Rouge, La., nightclub after an argument.

The 38-year-old Miller received the 10-year sentence on Tuesday from state Judge Tony Marabella as part of a plea deal the rapper signed in May.

Miller pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted second-degree murder for trying to shoot a nightclub owner and bouncer after he refused to be searched in August 2001.

In an unrelated case, Miller was convicted Aug. 11 of second-degree murder for the January 2002 death of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. Thomas was shot in the chest while being beaten by a group of men in a Harvey nightclub.
