Eyes and ears have been glued to the TV, Internet and radio for weeks, patiently awaiting a verdict in the case brought against Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray. Murray was tried for involuntary manslaughter after evidence showed that there were large doses of the drug propofol in Jackson’s system at his time of death. The prosecution argued that Murray knowingly administered mass amounts of the drug, but Murray maintained his innocence throughout the trial, stating that Jackson self-injected the lethal dose. On Monday (November 7) at 4 p.m. the verdict was finally delivered. Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and he will be held without bail, until his sentencing on November 29. Since the news broke, the hip-hop community has shared their reactions via Twitter.
