Jimmy Henchman facing charges over 2009 murder of G-Unit affiliate

For nearly two decades, James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has been known as one of the most-successful entertainment moguls in history. Last summer, it was revealed his entertainment empire was simply a front for his long-running drug ring. In May 2011, an warrant for Jimmy Henchman’s arrest was issued, with the mogul evading law enforcement for nearly a month.

When the warrant was issued, many things came about Jimmy Henchman. A former employee of Henchman, Dexter Isaac, revealed Jimmy Henchman paid him $5,000 to shoot Tupac Shakur in 1994 at Quad Studios in New York City. Tupac Shakur would blame this on The Notorious B.I.G. and his Bad Boy Records boss, Puff Daddy (Diddy).

Eventually becoming the biggest feud in history, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. both died, due to gunshot wounds. Soon, it was evident Jimmy Henchman was partially responsible for the defining moment of hip hop, in the eyes of the media. As the allegations against Jimmy Henchman stacked, the mogul, through his lawyer mouthpiece, denied everything and shifted the blame. However, eventually his brother would testify against him.

During the summer, another former employee of Jimmy Henchman revealed he was behind the murder of G-Unit affiliate, Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, a close friend of Tony Yayo. Early in 2007, Tony Yayo and Fletcher were involved with an altercation with the son of Henchman. Eventually, Fletcher would pick up an assault charge over this situation, thus making an enemy out of Henchman, who reportedly retaliated two years later.

Lowell Fletcher was released from prison and killed in 2009 in the Bronx. Last year, two men, Brian McLeod and Rodney Johnson revealed they murdered him under orders from Jimmy Henchman. The then-imprisoned Henchman again denied any involvement, saying he did not even know the two men. Now, further evidence has surfaced which links Jimmy Henchman to the murder of Fletcher. The story on Jimmy Henchman is ongoing.
