Suspect in Tupak Shakur Murder, James Rosemond Indicted for Arranging the Murder of a Friend of 50 Cent
James Rosemond, aka Jimmy Henchman, founder of Czar Entertainment, was officially indicted last friday for arranging the revenge murder of an associate of rapper 50 Cent. Rosemond’s company has managed such artists as The Game, Brandy, and Akon. The charges are conspiring with five other men to kill Lowell Fletcher back in 2009. Fletcher, an alleged Bloods lieutenant with the alias Lodi Mack, were convicted of assaulting Rosemond’s then-14-year-old son back in 2007.“This has not been a good month for Jimmy the Henchman,” New York police commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said in a printed statement.
Rosemond has a history with 50 as well as a history with violence. In 2008, journalist Chuck Philips accused Rosemond of being involved in the November 1994 non-fatal shooting of Tupac Shakur—a charge that appeared to be confirmed when Dexter Isaac, the man who carried out the attack, confessed to acting on Rosemond’s orders. In addition, Rosemond was convicted on a prior charge of running a million-dollar cocaine operation, and concealing shipments of the drugs in cases for musical equipment. 50 Cent and Czar Entertainment had a previous disagreement over the DVD documentary “Infamous Times – Volume 1: The Original 50 Cent,” based on the life of Brooklyn drug-lord Kevin ’50 Cent’ Martin.
