Jimmy Henchman Rosemond Indicted For Murder, Confesses To Planning 1994 Tupac Shooting
Rucuss staffJune 25, 2012
James ‘Jimmy Henchman’ Rosemond was indicted for arranging the murder of 50 Cent associate Lowell Fletcher back in 2009.
Henchman was charged by the United States attorney in Manhattan last Friday for conspiring with five other men to commit the murder. Fletcher was shot to death on September 29, 2009 in the Bronx, NY. This comes less than three weeks after Henchman was convicted of running a multi-million dollar cocaine distribution ring.
Henchman has also come clean about his role in the infamous Quad Studios shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994. He allegedly confessed he planned the hit in New York City, which iginited the bitter beef between 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G.
According to the Village Voice, Henchman participated in “Queen For A Day” government sessions last fall where he confessed to being the brains behind the operation that landed Tupac in the hospital with five gunshot wounds. (The “Queen For A Day” program allows suspected assailants under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won’t be used to prosecute them).
According to the Village Voice:
“Rosemond secretly admitted to involvement in Tupac’s ambush during one of nine “Queen For A Day” proffer sessions with the government last autumn, court transcripts show. (In such sessions, suspects under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won’t be used to prosecute them.) His confession unfolded as he was trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence, according to federal prosecutors.
“Rosemond apparently came clean about his involvement in Tupac’s ambush shortly after his former best friend, Dexter Isaac, stepped forward last summer to publicly confess that he had led the attack on Shakur in 1994. Isaac released a statement on June 16, 2011 to allhiphop.com, saying it was Rosemond who had paid him to rob and pistol-whip Tupac.”
Before Tupac was murdered, the rapper found out Rosemond set him up. He recorded a song called Against All Odds, in which he blamed Rosemond for orchestrating the assault at the Quad. In a verse he raps,”Jimmy Henchman. . . [You] set me up, wet me up… stuck me up. But you never shut me up.”
The statute of limitations on robbery is seven years so he can not be prosecuted. But it does bring some closure to a chapter in Hip-Hop.
