James “Henchman” Rosemond spent 20 years denying that he had anything to do with the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur in New York City. The shooting took place at Quad Studios, and led to the falling out that got both Tupac and The Notorious BIG murdered in cold b***d.
Tupac made a song called “Against All Odds” in which he noted that Rosemond tried to get him killed. He said:
“Jimmy Henchman. . .
[You] set me up, wet me up… stuck me up.
But you never shut me up.”
Now, court testimony is confirming that Rosemond himself did play a role in the shooting of Tupac Shakur. The Village Voice reports on the confessions taking place in a series of “Queen for a day” sessions with authorities, during which the defendant can negotiate a reduced sentence by confessing to various crimes without penalty of prosecution.
The revelation was made in court when the prosecutors in Rosemond’s felony drug distribution case noted that his lawyer denied that Rosemond had anything to do with the crime. In court, the defendant’s attorney stated that the claim was “utterly false.” This led to the prosecutors responding with this comment:
“If [Rosemond's attorney] is going to argue that this was a fabricated article, it’s the government’s position that we can put in the defendant’s own admission about that particular shooting,” the prosecutor said. “In saying it is not true, when in fact it is true, the government should be able to rebut that argument that he’s making, [and introduce] that the defendant actually admitted to this 1994 shooting.”
