In an exclusive interview with Don Diva Magazine, James “Jimmy Henchman ” Rosemond, former Music Mogal, says that he was the one that was betrayed:
On June 5, 2012, Rosemond, 48, was convicted of running a continuing criminal enterprise (CCE). The Continuing Criminal Enterprise Statute (commonly referred to as CCE Statute or The Kingpin Statute) is a United States federal law that targets large-scale drug traffickers who are responsible for long-term and elaborate drug conspiracies. Rosemond’s 13-count indictment included charges of drug trafficking, money laundering and witness tampering.
Four months later, on October 25, 2013, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole plus five years. The government sought the forfeiture of $10 million and also seized a $1-million condo along the Hudson River on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, as well as a pair of apartments in a downtown Brooklyn condominium that Rosemond purchased for $2.6 million.
On June 22, 2012, just weeks after his June 5 conviction, four charges were levied against Rosemond in connection with the September 2009 murder of Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, an associate of the G-Unit. Police alleged Rosemond arranged for Fletcher to be killed as part of a long-standing feud between Rosemond and 50 Cent, and in retaliation for an assault on his son in 2007. Henchman will start his second trial on these charges on December 1,2015. His first trial ended in a hung jury earlier this year. According to court documents the majority of evidence against Henchman came from cooperating witnesses and informants.
JH: …. Who did I tell on and who is in jail because of me… The government skillfully and systematically went after those around me with the help of individuals like [gangster] Haitian Jack, who is now in the witness protection program and was relocated to the Dominican Republic. They would arrest [these people] secretly and have them wear wires or tape me. For instance, my accountant John Dash was filing false taxes and defrauding his clients unbeknownst to me. They got him to testify at my drug trial that I never collected cash for my clients while on tour, including Game and Mike Tyson. They also (got a guy who worked for me, named Tony Martin, to say the same thing. This was a total lie… After the family pain, it’s the betrayal that hurts the most. All the guys that falsely testified or helped the government in bringing me down… that hurts me. I thought these guys were my friends: Khalil Abdullah (Craig Woodley), Winston (Winnie) Harris, Henry (Rollin’ 60- Black) Butler, Muhammad (Tef) Stewart, Tony Martin, Freddy Borges and David Hyatt. God Bless them. If any of them were dying of thirst I would have bled from my wrist to save them. That has proven to be my Achilles heel.
