Who’s Jimmy Henchmen Going To Rat Out Next?

One of the street’s harshest realities is learning even your most loyal can and will “snitch.” There’s truly no honor amongst thieves and associates of Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond will likely start finding this out sooner than later.

The internet has been abuzz since music industry stalwart (he’s worked with acts like Wyclef Jean, The-Game and more via his company Czar Entertainment) and longtime rumored gangster Henchmen’s revelation he was indeed the mastermind behind the 1994 robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur at Quad Studios in New York City. A journalist who’s been covering the case (and ‘Pac’s subsequent murder two years later) since the event occurred, Chuck Philips (formerly of the LA Times) yesterday wrote a piece for Village Voice where he described Henchmen’s court testimony implicating himself in the event Philips describes as triggering “a bicoastal rampage that played out in songs and videos generating billions of dollars for global music corporations and left a trail of body bags from Manhattan to Beverly Hills, culminating in the murders of both Tupac and his nemesis, the Notorious B.I.G.” According to the Voice, Henchmen was recently convicted of operating a multimillion-dollar crack ring that moved thousands of kilos of drugs and dirty cash between Los Angeles and New York. He’s currently awaiting sentencing in October for these crimes and was also just indicted this past Friday for the September 2009 murder of a man named Lowell Fletcher [a.k.a Lodi Mack], who pleaded guilty to slapping Henchmen’s teenage son along with rapper Tony Yayo outside the offices of management company Violator.

Insiders say ‘Pac found out Henchmen had set him up immediately after the ambush. He later rapped on his track “Against All Odds” words to the effect: “Jimmy Henchman…[You] set me up, wet me up…stuck me up. But you never shut me up.” According to prosecutors, Henchmen is ‘fessing to the incident 11 years later (outside the seven-year statute of limitations for robbery in New York, meaning he’ll never be charged for his role in the crime) as he’s now trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence. “Cooperation” means essentially singing like a canary to the feds, now leaving those following the trial—particularly entertainment and hip-hop people in the know—anticipating how many and which (undoubtedly high profile) names will be revealed as part of Henchmen’s drug lord and violent street activities next.
