Game’s Manager Issued Federal Arrest Warrant
Game’s longtime manager, James Rosemond, is reportedly a fugitive, as a federal arrest warrant is out for the missing Czar Entertainment boss.
Last week, Rosemond, was indicted for his involvement in a cocaine distribution scheme and a warrant for his arrest was issued, according to the New York Post, though Rosemond has not been located. A law enforcement official confirmed to the paper that a fugitive warrant has been issued, but Rosemond’s lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, said he has not seen any warrant.
“Although a federal prosecutor has told me that there is an arrest warrant out, they have refused to provide me with the warrant or a copy of the charges,” ” Lichtman told the Post.
Rosemond, who also manages Sean Kingston, has a checkered past that includes beef with Tony Yayo, who allegedly assaulted his then-14-year-old son outside of Czar offices due to a friction between G-Unit and Czar. Yayo was eventually let off the hook for the assault charges when he pleaded guilty to noncriminal harassment.
Last year, New York’s Daily News reported that Rosemond had been identified in court records as a state and federal police informant dating back to the mid-1990s. In fact, then-lawyers referred to his repeated cooperation with authorities when asking for a lesser sentence in Rosemond’s Los Angeles gun case. Rosemond sued the paper for $100 million for libel, denying any of the allegations that he cooperated with the feds.
