James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has been known for his business acumen for years. But, it appears all of it was a front for his criminal enterprise. There have been rumors about Rosemond for years, but nothing ever stuck. But, with a warrant out for his arrest, things are coming out.
There was always the mystery of who shot Tupac Shakur in 1994. Shakur blamed his former friends, the Bad Boy duo of Sean Combs and The Notorious B.I.G. However, they have always denied being involved. In 2008, a report said Rosemond was behind the shooting.
Henchmen denied the accusations and threatened to sue if it was not retracted. Now, seventeen years since the shooting and three years since the report, information has finally been revealed. Dexter Isaac was working for Rosemond in 1994 and was paid $2,500 to rob Tupac, but the robbery went wrong and he was forced to shoot him.
Despite things going wrong, Isaac was still able to get away and he said Rosemond gave him $2,500 and all the jewelry he got from Tupac Shakur, with the exception of one of his rings. Isaac said Rosemond kept the biggest ring, a diamond, to put in a new ring for his girlfriend, at the time. Tupac apparently knew something about what happened, as he named Rosemond, along with Biggie in “Against All Odds.” Everything is falling apart for Rosemond, who is currently facing DEA charges.
