Mayhem Morearty allegedly involved in robbery [News]
Toronto, ON – Mayhem 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 6 p.m. on August 9, 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.
