Two rappers have been convicted of trying to scare off witnesses to a murder in a song placed online. The ‘chilling’ song by Ishmael McLean, 22, and 18-year-old Rowan Simon warned people they could be shot for talking to police, the Old Bailey heard.
It had been placed on YouTube with links to MySpace and Facebook following the murder of 24-year-old Jason Johnson in Ealing, west London, last November. Simon and McLean, both from west London, were among eight people arrested but not prosecuted over the fatal shooting.
The song, which featured bursts of gunfire, included the lyrics: ‘Mention my name, I’ll aim and squeeze off’ and ‘I can see the snakes hiding in the f***ing grass and for a month now the spotlight’s been on us.’
The pair were found guilty of trying to pervert the course of justice.
Oh dear their ‘warning’ track backfired on them big time! Pathetic little losers!
Rest In Peace Jason Johnson
