James Rosemond Indicted: Hip-Hop Mogul Faces Murder-for-Hire Charge
Prosecutors brought the revised indictment Friday accusing Rosemond of ordering others to kill a man in the Bronx in 2009 as payback for an assault on his 14-year-old son.
The 47-year-old chief executive of New York-based Czar Entertainment is already imprisoned. He was recently convicted in federal court in Brooklyn on drug trafficking charges.
Rosemond’s lawyer did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
He is behind such hits as Salt-N-Pepa‘s “Shoop.”
