James “Henchman” Rosemond, the infamous hip-hop manager serving a life sentence for smuggling cocaine, could not be convicted for his alleged role in the murder of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher. The judge declared the case a mistrial.

U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon made the ruling on Friday (March 7) in a Manhattan federal court after the jury found itself in a deadlock. Rosemond’s lawyer said the witnesses who were against him in the trial were unreliable.

Rosemond reportedly set up the victim’s murder in 2009, in retaliation for his son being assaulted by Fletcher, a member of G-Unit member Tony Yayo’s entourage, after the teen was spotted wearing a Czar Entertainment T-shirt.

At the time, G-Unit and Compton rapper Game, who was managed by Czar Entertainment, were in a heated feud. Fletcher was Yayo’s co-defendant and told authorities that he was the one who assaulted Rosemond’s son.

Federal prosecutors initially charged Rosemond and Rodney Johnson in the 2009 shooting death of Fletcher.

Rosemond will still serve life in prison for being convicted for his role in a drug ring that transported cocaine from Los Angeles to New York City.
