A hip-music mogul has been indicted for a New York murder that happened back in 2009.
James Rosemond, also known as Jimmy Henchman, allegedly hired others to kill a man in the Bronx in retaliation for an assault on his 14-year-old son. The victim, Lowell Fletcher, was shot to death in the Mount Eden neighborhood.
Rosemond, 47, is the chief executive of New York-based Czar Entertainment, according to The Associated Press.
The man who is behind such hits as Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop” is already in prison on drug trafficking charges. The murder charges came less than weeks after he was convicted of running a multimillion-dollar cocaine ring.
“This has not been a good month for Jimmy the Henchman,” said New York police commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, according to the New York Times.
Rosemond is perhaps best known for his alleged involvement in the killings of Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace AKA the Notorious B.I.G. Rosemond has denied involvement in the feud that eventually led to the legendary hip-hopper’s death.
