Jimmy Henchman admits to involvement in 1994 Tupac Murder

Details have surfaced regarding James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond admitting his involvement in the 1994 non-fatal shooting of fallen hip hop legend, Tupac Shakur.


Reports indicate that “his confession unfolded as he was trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence.”  Rosemond has offered the new information to investigators as a sidebar during a court case where he was later convicted of operating a multi-million dollar crack ring.


Rosemond apparently came clean after his former best friend, Dexter Isaac, claimed Rosemond hired him to rob Tupac outside the Quad studio: “In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob 2Pac at the Quad Studio,” Isaac said. “He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Cynthia Reed. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery.”


Rosemond, who already faces life in jail, won’t be charged for his role in the attack on ‘Pac, which was classified as a robbery by the NYPD. In fact, no one will ever be charged, as the statute of limitations on robbery in NYC is seven years.


The ’94 shooting was the impetus for the well-publicized East Coast/West Coast beef which centred around Shakur, and former friend turned rival,Christopher Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.).  


Rosemond was later found guilty on 13 accounts of drug trafficking by the jury.
