Former hip-hop mogul James Rosemond, a.k.a. Jimmy Henchman, was already sitting down for the rest of his life for a $10 million a year drug trafficking ring. Yesterday, two more life sentences were added onto that, according to AllHipHop. The double life bid comes after Henchman was convicted for the murder of former G-Unit associate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher last year.
The well-known incident that started the drama happened in 2007, during the height of LA emcee The Game’s beef with G-Unit. Henchman was Game’s manager. One day, Lodi Mack (a known member of the Bloods) and Tony Yayo assaulted Henchman’s teenage son. The two were convicted for the incident. Lodi Mack was locked up while Yayo was ordered to ten days of community service.
Lodi Mack was released from prison in 2009 and soon after he was shot and killed. Prosecutors accused Henchman of orchestrating the hit and paying the shooters with two kilos of cocaine. AllHipHop reports:
He was found guilty of the murders later that year, but the verdict was overturned in 2016 after an appeals court ruled the judge overseeing the trial was wrong for limiting a line of questioning to Brian McCleod.
Jimmy was ultimately convicted of Lodi Mack’s murder in November of 2017.
Henchman “adamantly denies” any involvement in Lodi Mack’s death and he had a few words after his conviction. “This is America! I want to apologize to my family and my support system,” he told AllHipHop. “Most importantly, to my son; When I asked you to intern as a 14 yr old at my office it was because I wanted you to see your father working and have a strong role model.”
Henchman continued, “I wanted you to look up to brown and black people in boardrooms rather than in the streets. I was proud of the work I was doing. I never thought when I sent you on that errand, you would be surrounded and assaulted by 50 Cent and four G-Unit grown men with guns for wearing a T-shirt.”
