Jimmy ‘Henchman’ Rosemond Admits to Masterminding 1994 Tupac Shakur Shooting
Just days after news spread that music executive James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond was indicted on murder-for-hire charges, startling information has been revealed regarding his involvement in the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur in New York City. Rosemond has confessed to being the mastermind behind the assault on the rapper, which took place at Quad Studios.
The Village Voice reports that Rosemond implicated himself in the shooting while speaking with government officials during one of nine "Queen for a Day" proffer sessions. Rosemond chose to confess his knowledge of the crime due to an agreement with the government that the information would not be used to prosecute him.
Before Tupac was killed, he recorded a song called "Against All Odds," calling out Rosemond for planning the Quad Studios shooting.
"Promised a payback, Jimmy Henchman, in due time/ I know you bitch n----s is listenin', 'The World Is Mine'/ Set me up, wet me up, n----s stuck me up/ Heard the guns bust but you tricks never shut me up," the rapper spit.
Unfortunately Rosemond will never be charged for his role in the Tupac Shakur shooting of 1994. The ambush was classified as a robbery by NYPD and as a result, the statute of limitations has run out. In New York, the statute of limitations on robbery is seven years. The time to prosecute a suspect for the Quad City robbery and shooting expired 11 years ago.
