Jimmy Henchman Sentenced To Life In Prison


The late 2 Pac promised Jimmy Henchman would get his in due time. It looks like yesterday was that day. Former hip-hop music exec James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was sentenced to life behind bars, yesterday (October 25), in a Brooklyn courtroom. Rosmond was convicted in 2012 of drug trafficking after a lengthy investigation in which authorities say they discovered that he was head of a bi-coastal cocaine smuggling ring.

Officials say his illegal business raked in over $11 million a year using a music equipment shipping company to blindly transport coke and cash. “His image as a music impresario was a cover for the real Jimmy Rosemond, a thug in a suit,” said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch at his sentencing. Henchman still has more charges hanging over his head. He is also facing conspiracy charges in a another case where authorities say he conspired to murder Tony Yayo for allegedly slapping his son.

Rosemond was famously name checked by Tupac on the 1996 song “Against All Odds” with Pac accusing him of masterminding the 1994 Quad Studio shooting. “Promise to payback Jimmy Henchman in due time , I know you bitch niggas is listening the world is mine,” spewed Pac.

    Life in prison should be for murder, aggravated rape, and child molestation…THAT’S IT.

    • musa

      Your an idiot. Do you think an 11 million dollar cocaine business is peaceful and had operated without death?

      • Michael Burmeister

        Then have the life sentence be for murder.

    • YungSauce

      How about armed robbery? Or operating a drug ring? Any time you threaten the safety of innocent people you deserve much worse than life in prison with free food, tv and health/dental insurance. Stop defending this scumbag.

    How many Wall Street Moguls who squandered people’s pension and life savings in the last financial debacle—and caused suicides, etc., got a life sentence? The system always tries to make an example of blacks who find ways to be financially successful–whether illegal or not.

      Damn if you do and damn if you don’t this brother said damn it. I ain’t going. If he did the right thing some of that shit it put up and his people are going to be OK.

    So the guy who was working for the feds to kill 2pac get’s caught up by the feds and sentenced to life in prison? It’s kind of like the mafia; the people who you work for will eventually bring you down (snitching) and take you out (clipping). As Tupac said himself, “A real live tale about a snitch named Haitian Jack. Knew he was workin for the feds, same crime, different trials. Nigga, picture what he said, and did I mention promised a payback, Jimmy Henchman, in due time.”
