Jimmy Henchman Admits Setting Up 2Pac
Jimmy Henchman's troubles don't stop at his recent guilty verdict on drug trafficking charges. He's now indicted for the murder of 50 Cent's boy who slapped Lil' Henchman. Homie was singing to the feds.. Amongst his confessions for a lighter sentence was his involvement in the 1994 robbery/shooting of 2pac. Pac knew.
For nearly two decades, drug lord James Rosemond, a/k/a "Jimmy Henchman," denied accusations of his involvement in the near-fatal 1994 ambush of rap star Tupac Shakur at New York's Quad Recording Studios that marked a pivotal moment in American pop history. The attack on Tupac triggered 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.
Before he was assassinated, Tupac recorded a song called "Against All Odds," in which he blamed Rosemond for orchestrating the assault at the Quad:
"Jimmy Henchman. . .
[You] set me up, wet me up... stuck me up.
But you never shut me up."
Now, new evidence implicates Rosemond in the crime -- facts recently divulged by an unlikely eyewitness, never previously interviewed by police: Rosemond himself.
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.
