Jimmy Rosemond has one of the most intriguing and notorious stories in Hip Hop history. A legitimate street dude turned multimillionaire music mogul, Rosemond represented The Game, Brandy, Sean Kingston, Mike Tyson, and countless others. He was charged with six life sentences on a kingpin statute as well as an additional life sentence for his involvement in the murder of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
This week, Rosemond’s murder-for-hire charge was overturned. His remaining Kingpin charges are the primary subject of Unjust Justice: The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes, a docuseries by Don Sikorski that challenges the state’s narrative. Sikorski is the producer and director of the lauded BMF documentary and believes Rosemond’s kingpin conviction was egregious and false. Justin Hunte spoke with both Jimmy Rosemond and Don Sikorski about Unjust Justice. Both attest that Rosemond has not seen the docuseries yet, nor did he have any involvement in its findings outside of the interviews he contributed while incarcerated.
This week’s episode is a story that includes 50 Cent, Tupac Shakur, Empire creator Lee Daniels, phony FBI documents, and an allegedly politically motivated District Attorney. But there are bigger issues that affect us all. Let’s break it down.
