MTV UK News
he is not bitter after his spell in prison awaiting trial for the murder of Colin Scarlett.
The So Solid Crew rapper and producer was fully cleared of involvement in the killing of Scarlett in November 2004 by an Old Bailey jury last Thursday - however he spent more than a year behind bars while on remand.
"I aint gonna let prison get me angry and then spend my life battling the system, he said.
"I'll tell you how it was for me. I was innocent. I look at my hands and say these hands are clean. These hands aint taken no life.
He also admitted he learnt to see the positive in his situation while behind bars.
Prison for me was a blessing in disguise. I didnt appreciate the little things (before).
The hype, the glamour (of fame), a lot of things get to you and in the midst of trying to stay focused you tend to slip off and be an arsehole now and again. So for me prison was a reality check.
I've learnt a lot, but through the pain and tears there's gonna be a lot of happy days.
