So Solid Crew Rapper's Prison Reality Check


So Solid Crew Dwayne Vincent Carl Morgan Colin Scarlett MTV

Former So Solid Crew rapper MEGAMAN is refusing to let the time he spent in prison on a murder charge ruin his life, because it ended up being a "reality check" which "focused" his mind again.
Megaman - real name Dwayne Vincent- was cleared of murder in London's Old Bailey court last month (SEP06). He was accused of aiding and abetting friend Carl Morgan to shoot 24-year-old Colin Scarlett in 2004.
However, Vincent believes he can use the experience to his benefit, as success was starting to go to his head before he was wrongly incarcerated.
He tells MTV, "I ain't gonna let prison get me angry and then spend my life battling the system.
"I'll tell you how it was for me. I was innocent. I look at my hands and say these hands are clean. These hands ain't taken no life.
"Prison for me was a blessing in disguise. I didn't appreciate the little things (before). The hype, the glamour, a lot of things get to you and in the midst of trying to stay focused you tend to slip off and be an a**ehole now and again. So for me prison was a reality check.
"I've learnt a lot, but through the pain and tears there's gonna be a lot of happy days."

The rapper, real name Dwayne Vincent, is accused of aiding and abetting friend Carl Morgan to shoot 24-year-old Colin Scarlett in Tooting, south London in 2004.

JEREMY DONNE QC prosecuting lawyer told the court the issue was to ascertain whether Vincent was a party to the incident.

The rapper, real name Dwayne Vincent, is accused of aiding and abetting friend Carl Morgan to shoot 24-year-old Colin Scarlett in Tooting, south London in 2004.
Morgan, 24, was found guilty of murdering Scarlett last year (05), but Vincent is standing trial for the third time due to "various technical and administrative reasons", JUDGE MARTIN STEPHENS told the jury today (04SEP06).
Morgan was said to have killed Scarlett following a fight between the two men earlier in the day, which saw the murder victim attack Morgan in front of his ex-girlfriend - who was then dating Scarlett.
JEREMY DONNE, QC prosecuting lawyer, said, "Morgan enlisted the help of Vincent and others and armed himself with a self loading .32 pistol and live ammunition. When they found Mr Scarlett, there was a brief encounter before Morgan with Vincent's encouragement and support, shot him dead. This is a case about humiliation - or disrespect - fermenting a desire for revenge."
