Jimmy Henchman Receives Second Life Sentence in Prison
James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, who is currently serving a life sentence in prison for drug trafficking, was slapped with another life sentence in connection with the 2009 murder of Bloods street gang member Lowell Fletcher.
According to the New York Post, Rosemond put a hit out on Fletcher because he was affiliated with G-Unit, whom he had been feuding with.
The former rap mogul was seeking retaliation after Tony Yayo threatened Henchman’s son with a gun because he was wearing a rival’s T-shirt. Henchman vowed to get revenge and paid Brian “Slim” McCleod a “slab” of cocaine worth $30,000 to carry out the hit.
Judge Colleen McMahon called Rosemond’s crimes “heinous” but lamented to the 50-year-old that “there’s nothing I can do to alter your fate.”
In 2012, during an interview with government officials, Rosemond confessed to being the mastermind behind the 1994 non-fatal shooting of Tupac Shakur at New York’s Quad Studios. Unfortunately, he won't be convicted of the crime because of the statute of limitations is up.
In 2013, Rosemond was found guilty by a federal jury in Brooklyn for trafficking drugs through his record label, Czar Entertainment, from the East to the West Coast.
