Another chapter ends in one of the greatest mysteries of Hip-Hop. According to several news sources, James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond confessed to authorities that he planned the robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994.
Many attribute this incident to the spark that ignited the East Coast v. West Coast beef. Henchman took part in a “Queen For A Day” government session last fall where he confessed to being the mastermind of the entire scheme. This program allows suspects who are being investigated to confess knowledge and participation in particular crimes without consequence of prosecution.

He confessed after Dexter Issac came forward as the orchestrator of the robbery/shooting. Henchman has also recently been convicted of running a large drug trafficking operation and was also indicted for the September 2009 murder of 50 Cent’s associate, Lowell Fletcher.
