Many of hip hop’s biggest mysteries have been solved in recent years. Tupac Shakur went to his grave believing Diddy and The Notorious B.I.G. were behind his 1994 shooting at Quad Studios in New York City. In 2011, the world learned Jimmy Henchman was the one who orchestrated that situation.
The same year, Jimmy Henchman was arrested for drug trafficking and revealed to be behind the murder of 50 Cent’s partner and Chris Lighty’s friend, Lodi Mack. In 2007, Jimmy Henchman’s son was reportedly beaten up by Tony Yayo. During this same frame of time, attempts were made on Tony Yayo’s life.
According to rumors, Jimmy Henchman and Chris Lighty were rivals and the former made attempts on Lighty’s life in the past. As the manager of Game during the height of his feud with 50 Cent, Jimmy Henchman and Chris Lighty were pit against each other. A source even said that Jimmy Henchman held a knife at Lighty’s brother.
The knife incident took place after Jimmy Henchman’s son was beaten. When Chris Lighty died, Jimmy Henchman issued a statement expressing his condolences about his death and how he will be missed by the world. For his drug charges, Jimmy Henchman will stand trial on November 18.
