So Solid Crew member Megaman is was acquitted of murder charges Thursday (Sept. 28) by an Old Bailey jury in the UK.
The acquittal marks the end of a series of court appearances and a more than one-year jail stint for the 27-year-old rapper (born Dwayne Vincent). Megaman was found not guilty of charges stemming from a Nov. 2004 incident in Tooting, south London.

Megaman was charged with encouraging his friend and So Solid Crew producer Colin Morgan to fatally shoot Colin Scarlett. Scarlett, 24, was hit three times in the chest, neck and hand.

Despite his injuries, Scarlett allegedly shot back at Morgan seven times with a modified pistol, but missed.

Scarlett later died from his wounds.

Although Morgan was convicted of murder in October 2005 and sentenced to life behind bars, the jury could not reach a verdict over Megaman's role in the murder.

A retrial was soon ordered, but fell through when the jury was discharged in April, leaving Megaman to go on trial for a third time.

Best known for their 2002 hit song "21 Seconds," So Solid Crew have faced criticism for their frequent references to guns and violence.
