HELTAH SKELTAH rapper ROCK has been found not guilty of attempted murder over a 2008 shooting which left a man paralysed.
The hip-hop star was accused of working as a pimp at night and shooting an alleged rival in January 2008.

In a post on Ha's Twitter.com page, he writes: "Exhale for Rock & congratulations to his attorney Kenneth Montgomery for the NOT GUILTY VERDICT! Incredible job."
