Jimmy Henchmen has admitted to setting up rapper Tupac in the 1994 robbery and shooting at New Yorks Quaid Studio. After almost 18 years, he had never admitted to being a part of the setup until now. Last year, his former best friend, Dexter Isaac, came forward and admitted the it was he who left the attack on Tupac and released a statement to allhiphop.com that Rosemand paid him to rob and pistol whip Tupac. This was the very event that started the whole East Cost West Coast Beef which resulted in Tupac's and Biggie's Death.
Rosemond apparently confessed to the government himself about his role in the robbery and shooting.
Rosemond secretly admitted to involvement in Tupac's ambush during one of nine "Queen For A Day" proffer sessions with the government last autumn, court transcripts show. (In such sessions, suspects under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won't be used to prosecute them.) His confession unfolded as he was trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence, according to federal prosecutors.
"If [Rosemond's attorney] is going to argue that this was a fabricated article, it's the government's position that we can put in the defendant's own admission about that particular shooting," the prosecutor said. "In saying it is not true, when in fact it is true, the government should be able to rebut that argument that he's making, [and introduce] that the defendant actually admitted to this 1994 shooting."
The revelation surfaced May 14 during a sidebar in the same Brooklyn federal court where Rosemond was later convicted of operating a multimillion-dollar crack ring that moved thousands of kilos of drugs and dirty cash between Los Angeles and New York. Twelve jurors took only two days to issue a unanimous verdict, convicting him of all 13 counts with which he was charged
Before he was killed in 1996, Tupac made a song 'Against All Odds", in which he blamed Jimmy for setting him up. Some of the words of the song were:
"Jimmy Henchman. . .
[You] set me up, wet me up… stuck me up.
But you never shut me up."
He can't be charged with any part of the robber nor anyone else, as the statue of limitation for the charge of robbery is 7 years.
