52-year-old Jimmy Henchman, born James Rosemond, was once a Hip-Hop mogul. The Brooklyn bred man managed artist such as The Game, Sean Kingston, Brandy, Gucci Mane, Salt-n-Pepa, and Akon. Henchman even negotiated at 2002 fight between Mike Tyson and Lenox Lewis.
Henchman’s success in Hip-Hop would be cut short October 25th of 2013 after he was sentenced to life in prison for drug trafficking charges. Authorities would discover that Henchman was the head of a bi-coastal cocaine smuggling ring. According to reports Henchman earned a total of $11,000,000 a year trafficking drugs. He was hit with another life sentence in 2015 for being involved in the murder of Bloods Gang member & G-Unit affiliate, Lowell ‘Lodi Mack’ Fletcher.
The mogul was out for revenge after G-Unit‘s Tony Yayo threatened his 14-year-old son with a gun for wearing G-Unit rival at the time, The Game’s t-shirt. Henchman would pay Brian ‘Slim’ McCleod in cocaine to carry out the hit. Though, he was convicted, Henchman has remained consistent in saying he wanted McCleod to just shoot at Fletcher but, he didn’t want him murdered.
Now, according to new reports, Henchman has been convicted a second time for the murder for hire hit. On Tuesday around 8 p.m. a Manhattan federal jury convicted Henchman on four counts of murder for hire. It would be Henchman’s third trial over the murder. The first trial resulted in a hung jury, the second resulted in a conviction, though a new trial was ordered by a federal appeals court.
