Rock of Heltah Skeltah Arrested for Attempted Murder

Rock, one half of Duck Down Records duo Heltah Skeltah with his partner Sean Price, was arrested on Tuesday (January 15) on a charge of attempted murder in the second degree. The rapper’s attorney, Kenneth J. Montgomery, released a statement to Hot 97 News Director Miss Info explaining that his client stands accused of shooting a man in the neck on a Brooklyn street and causing paralysis. Rock, whose real name is Jamal Bush, has been formally arraigned on the attempted murder count and related charges. Mr. Montgomery notes that the victim in the case is a known pimp and member of the Bloods street gang. The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office has also accused Rock of being a pimp himself, and claim that the alleged incident occurred during a dispute over a prostitute. “Mr. Bush categorically and unequivocally denies all of these allegations and we will fight vigorously to prove his innocence,” Montgomery told Rock is due in court on January 18.
