Maybe this one sticks?
Jimmy Henchman was found guilty of hiring a hitman to kill a friend of 50 Cent for a second time. The result of his third trial — the first ended in a hung jury — found that Henchman hired someone to kill the G-Unit-affiliated Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
The story goes that Henchman (born James Rosemond), hired men to kill the man after Fletcher and rapper Tony Yayo were found smacking around his son. The hit went down in 2009, shortly after Fletcher was released from jail for the assault. Jimmy had two men carry out the hit in exchange for drugs (did we mention he was a cocaine dealer?). The men were given two kilos of cocaine and Fletcher was gunned down in the Bronx. It wasn’t long before authorities connected it to Henchman.
The former manager and entertainment mogul was already serving four life sentences in connection with a nationwide drug-running operation that he ran through various recording studios for decades. The so-called Rosemond Organization made him a fair bit of money. Authorities allege that the operation that moved money and narcotics from New York to Los Angeles and vice versa netted Rosemond $11 million dollars per year at its height in the ‘00s.Though Henchman is pretty clearly locked away, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t fought the charges.
His first conviction on the murder-for-hire charges was overturned after his attorneys successfully argued that a judge had limited their questioning in an improper manner during the trial. Though this is the second successful conviction of Henchman on these charges, his team plans to appeal.
The last sentence was life in prison plus 20 years and we can expect something similar on this latest conviction.
Nobody from the G-Unit side of things has commented on the conviction. 50 Cent is too busy chasing down jewelers that he claims owe him money.
In a recent Instagram post, the pettiness king shared a photo of celeb jeweler Dave Bling and urged anyone listening to avoid him.
“If you see this bum a** jeweler @Davebling tell him 50 looking for him,” he wrote on Nov. 18. “He owe money, the man broke don’t f*ck wit him.”
Earlier today he posted a picture of an uncomfortable selfie alongside the jeweler.
“Look who I ran into, @davebling,” he wrote alongside a photo of him gripping Bling’s shoulder a little more intensely than was probably necessary. “Now we going to get my money. 😆 every dime of it.”
Murder Was The Case
Henchman isn’t the only one-time rap king to go down for a murder in recent months. Kidd Creole of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five was arrested in New York for murdering a homeless man earlier this year.
Authorities claim that Creole murdered a man who called him a gay slur, stabbing him in the chest and head several times. Creole was done in by surveillance footage which police say captured both Creole’s deadly attack on the man and the provocation leading up to it.
What do you think? Should Jimmy Henchman continue to fight this charge given that he’s already serving four life sentences? How many times do you need to be convicted of the same crime before you accept it? Do you believe that Henchman is guilty of getting some henchman of his own?
