Earlier this week, music mogul and real life O.G. James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was found guilty on 13 charges for allegedly being the leader of the “Rosemond Organization,” a group that supposedly moved hundreds of kilos a week.
For years, Jimmy Henchman's name rang loudly in hip-hop circles. Recently, he was the manager of notable rappers and artists like Game, Gucci Mane, Brandy, Sean Kingston, Sheek Louch and Akon.
But before that, the Haitian-native was a notorious street guy from New York City, who reached infamy after Tupac rapped that he was going to "payback, Jimmy Henchman," because Pac felt like he was one of the people who set him up and shot him back at Quads studio in 1994.
It was never confirmed that Henchman had a role in Pac's shooting, but in 2008, the LA Times printed a story by Chuck Phillips which pointed a finger at Henchman as the man responsible for the shooting. The story was later retracted after TheSmokingSection revealed some of the documents used as evidence weren’t real.
