Jimmy Henchmen associate charged with Death of G-Unit affiliate

The empire of James "Jimmy Henchmen" Rosemond is crumbling at a rapid rate. Having been in the hip hop industry for over twenty years, Rosemond was also a major crime figure. While he has had some scrapes with the law, no evidence turned up on him until May of 2011.

It was revealed his management and film companies were actually fronts for his cocaine empire. The DEA has been investigating his operation and there is a warrant for his arrest. Rosemond is denying all the allegations and demanded the charges be dropped.

Earlier this week, a former Henchmen employee said he shot Tupac Shakur in 1994. Rosemond wanting jewelry off Shakur led to the East Coast/West Coast feud. But, through his lawyer, Rosemond denied the statement, saying the only reason Dexter Isaac confessed was because he did not want to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Now, Rosemond is under even more media scrutiny. For years, Jimmy Henchmen has had issues with hip hop's tough guy, 50 Cent and his G-Unit Records. In 2007, Tony Yayo and Lowell Fletcher, an affiliate of the label, got into an altercation with Rosemond's then-fourteen year old son. Following the altercation, which has been denied ever happening by Rosemond, Fletcher was killed upon his 2009 prison release. Two men have been arrested for this murder and both are tied to Rosemond.

Brian McCleod and Rodney Johnson confessed to killing Fletcher. Johnson has been charged with plotting with conspirators to orchestrate a homicide. Prosecutors feel as if Johnson hired McCleod and others to finish off Lowell Fletcher. The duo are also facing charges surrounding drug trafficking and are believed to be a part of Rosemond's drug ring.
