Incarcerated manager James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond is reportedly being
targeted by federal proesecutors in relation to the murder of a 50 Cent
According to reports, Henchman is facing charges which could potentially get
him a death sentence.
"[Federal prosecutors] are in the process of putting together charges against
Mr. Rosemond for a death penalty-eligible offense," Assistant US Attorney Todd
Kaminsky told Brooklyn federal Judge John Gleeson. The murder that Rosemond may
soon be charged in connection with took place in 2009, when two of his
associates allegedly gunned down a man who was accused of assaulting Rosemond's
son. Victim Lowell Flecher was associate of rap star 50 Cent. Rosemond's
associates, Rodney Johnson and Brian McCleod, already are facing murder and
weapons charges in Manhattan federal court stemming from Fletcher's fatal
shooting. Fletcher was gunned down with a .22 caliber firearm at Jerome and Mt.
Eden Avenues in The Bronx, court documents show. Prosecutors say that Johnson
and McCleod fatally shot Fletcher in exchange for a promised payment of
narcotics. (New York Post)
Fletcher's death is believed to be in relation to G-Unit's Tony Yayo allegedly
assaulting Henchman's son 5 years ago.
Rosemond has long been suspected of putting a contract on Fletcher in
retaliation for slapping Rosemond's then 14-year-old son. 2 years before he was
gunned down on a Bronx street, Fletcher pleaded guilty to assaulting the teen,
but investigators believed he took the fall for Tony Yayo, a member of Fiddy's
G-Unit, who had slapped the kid. Fletcher was a member of Yayo's posse.
Fletcher was murdered shortly after he was released from prison for a drug
conviction and for assaulting Rosemond's son. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan
indicted Rodney Johnson and Brian McCleod for the murder. The indictment claims
they did the killing in exchange for drugs. Rosemond, who repped rapper The
Game, has been charged with running a coast-to-coast, multi-million dollar
cocaine ring. He has been engaged in plea negotiations with the feds in
Brooklyn which could be complicated by the upcoming murder charge. (New York
Prior to Interscope's denial, the iconic record label was linked to Jimmy
Henchman for running a drug operation last year.
Federal officials say these are findings from a year-long Drug Enforcement
Administration investigation, the same investigation that led to the indictment
of Czar Entertainment CEO and Game manager James Rosemond on 18 felony charges
that could result in having him sentenced to life in prison. TSG further
reports that while its unclear how the players in the narcotics ring had access
to Interscope's offices, the Game records on the label and his road manager has
been named in the trafficking plot. Rosemond is currently being held without
bail in Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan. (XXL
After going on the run for drug-related charges last spring, Rosemond was
eventually arrested over the summer and has remained behind bars ever since.
The hip-hop mogul spotted the agents at about noon as he walked out of the W
Hotel in Union Square, sources said. Once on the street, Rosemond walked north
and tried to outrun the agents until he was finally arrested on 21st Street and
Park Avenue South. The US Attorney's Office in Brooklyn charged Rosemond in a
complaint today with orchestrating the delivery of multiple kilos of cocaine
from Los Angeles to the New York City metropolitan area. Millions of dollars in
drug proceeds went from New York back to California, the complaint charged.
