Mayhem allegedly involved in robbery [News]

Tweet

Toronto, ONMayhem Morearty, who released an acapella from Maplehurst Correctional Facility two weeks ago, is in court today after receiving new charges yesterday alleging his involvement in a jewellery store robbery. Well known in the Canadian indie music scene for his harsh delivery and realist perspective on life, Mayhem is charged with a firearm, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence. The incident in question happened at Arax Jewellers around 6pm on August 9th, 2010 and video tapes reveal two masked men enter the store while a female waits in a vehicle outside. Although no faces can be seen in the video, a woman was also charged in this incident while the third suspect is unknown.

Mayhem Morearty has long stood as a voice for marginalized young people in Toronto and is well regarded in the hip hop community as a respected veteran. While some may cite his gritty lyrics in an attempt to portray his lifestyle, it’s important for HipHopCanada to point out Mayhem Morearty’s unrelenting commitment to showing both sides of the coin in his music. With gambles come consequences and this was a reality Mayhem reveals over and over through his street narratives and poetic rhetoric.

HipHopCanada will continue to update our readers on this case as more information is made available. Hold your head Unk.

An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004. Over the next four years, the online radio show would evolve into a major outlet for Canadian music and hip hop culture in general. Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on Cityonmyback.com called "The Fine Print."

  1. Not Mayhem

    Most arrests are bullshit but once you start shooting innocent people who are legitimately trying to feed their families, you don’t deserve freedom.
