Rap music mogul, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond, was found guilty last month for operating a drug ring and indicted for murder on Friday. He was sentenced to life in prison. But now, we've found out that Henchman admits to setting up the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur. This is the shooting that turned Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. into enemies.
According to the 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.”
The statute of limitations on robbery is seven years, so although this confession brings minor closure to a huge chapter in Hip-Hop, the involved parties will see zero jail time for this.
