Along with Jerry Sandusky, Jimmy Henchman may not see daylight for the rest of his life. After being found guilty on drug charges earlier this month, Henchman has now been indicted for the murder of 50 Cent associate Lowell Fletcher in 2009. He stands accused of hiring two others to kill Fletcher in exchange for drugs. Fletcher was found shot to death in a Bronx neighborhood.

Ironically, the indictment has also led to Henchman (real name Jimmy Rosemond) admitting to his role in the 1994 Quad City shooting of Tupac Shakur, the same shooting which led hip-hop down the doward spiral of beef and sadly murder. In exchange for leniency, Rosemond gave up the ghost during nine “Queen For A Day” sessions with the government according to Chuck Phillips’ article in The Village Voice, attempting to beat Dexter Issac to the punch. Issac if you recall, admitted to being one of the shooters on that fateful night in November 1994.

Sadly, Henchman won’t be going to jail for that charge as in New York, the statue of limitations for robbery cases stand 7 years and Pac’s shooting was classified as, you guessed it, a robbery. Phillips originally had pegged Henchman as being implicit in Pac’s shooting back when he wrote for LA Times in 2008. Pac? Well, Pac already knew when he made “Against All Odds”.

UPDATE: Looks like the Henchman camp is firing back at Phillips’ story and whether or not Henchman even confessed to have a role in the Quad City shooting. In a statement released directly to The Source Rosemond’s publicist Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez denies the allegations against Rosemond and states that Chuck Phillips is only trying to “rebuild his torn reputation”. She also adds that Rosemond would “beat the shit out of Phillips” when he comes home, if he comes home of course. Not exactly the words a noted publicist would take but when your client is indicted on a murder charge, threatening a journalist doesn’t look good for his character.

Here’s the full statement below:

“This Chuck Philips character is the “Howard Cosell” to Jimmy Rosemond. This Philips guy is trying to rebuild his torn reputation as a discredited journalist. And let’s be clear, obviously folks are going to print whatever nonsense they see others print. The bottom line is, Jimmy has stated time and time again, he had nothing to do with the shooting at Quad studios and rapper Tupac Shakur. If anyone knows Jimmy they know he doesn’t have a problem with telling folks that, and if he did shoot 2Pac, he damn sure wouldn’t say he did do it and…what would be the motive? Jimmy’s had more more money than 2pac, he had a street cred that dudes would love to have and he had card blanche with any record label and exec in the business. Why would he shoot Tupac? Certainly not for jewelry, nor money, nor envy of a reputation. Trust me, when Jimmy comes home, he’s going to beat the shit out of Chuck Philips and if I were folks I wouldn’t count him out. Show me the proferring statements that they claim say he shot 2Pac? What happened to journalists fact checking the stories they run?” – Official Publicist, Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez

    Title is misleading, Henchman was always suspected of being involved in the FIRST and original Tupac shooting, in which he survived but lost a testicle

      Misleading? He’s indicted on a separate murder charge, not the 2Pac murder.
