It has been confirmed, that Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond was in fact the man who set up the infamous shooting of Tupac Shakur that occurred in the Quad Studios in NYC. Henchman has been confessing to a humongous amount of past crimes in the recent months, because he is attempting to work out a deal with the court to get his current prison sentence reduced. Well you can add "organizing the NYC shooting of Tupac Shakur" to that list.
A statement has been released via The Village Voice regarding Henchman's confession to the Tupac shooting, which he actually confessed to last autumn, however it has been kept under-wraps for various reasons.
"Rosemond secretly admitted to involvement in Tupac's ambush during one of nine "Queen For A Day" proffer sessions with the government last autumn, court transcripts show. (In such sessions, suspects under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won't be used to prosecute them.) His confession unfolded as he was trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence, according to federal prosecutors.
"Rosemond apparently came clean about his involvement in Tupac's ambush shortly after his former best friend, Dexter Isaac, stepped forward last summer to publicly confess that he had led the attack on Shakur in 1994. Isaac released a statement on June 16, 2011 to allhiphop.com, saying it was Rosemond who had paid him to rob and pistol-whip Tupac."
It is because of this shooting that both Tupac and Biggie engaged in a deadly Hip-Hop war that resulted in the tragic death of both artists. Due to the statute of limitations regarding robbery cases, Henchman nor anyone else involved will serve any jail time for this.
