Jimmy Henchman Sentenced To Life In Prison

Jimmy Henchman was sentenced to life in prison in Brooklyn federal court. He is also facing a separate murder charge.

Jimmy Henchman, a former music executive and one-time manager of Game and others, was sentenced to life in prison on narcotics conspiracy and other charges in Brooklyn federal court yesterday (October 25), as per newsday.com.

Jimmy Henchman, whose given name is James Rosemond, was convicted of overseeing an $11 million a year cocaine trafficking enterprise that stretched from coast to coast and used a musical equipment shipping company as a cover to move cash and cocaine, according to newsday.com.

Prosecutor Todd Kaminsky told U.S. District Judge John Gleeson that Jimmy Henchman continued his operation even after he discovered that he was under investigation, according to The Wall Street Journal’s website.

"About every stereotype you can think of about a drug kingpin was reflected in how he lived," Kaminsky said, as per wsj.com.

The judge said he would have given Rosemond a life sentence even if it wasn't legally mandated, according to wsj.com.

"You chose that life and this is the punishment you get," the judge said, as per wsj.com.

"His image as a music impresario was a cover for the real Jimmy Rosemond, a thug in a suit," Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said, as per newsday.com.

Two years ago, agents seized a case containing $790,000 in vacuum-sealed plastic in $100,000 bundles, prosecutors said, wsj.com says. After the seizure, Rosemond began stashing drugs in hidden compartments in cars that were transported from coast to coast, the site says.

Henchman’s lawyers claimed he was framed by members of his crew who pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against him, including a Los Angeles dealer who admitted to supplying more than 200 pounds of drugs to Henchman’s operation during a two-year period, wsj.com reports.

Jimmy Henchman, who also worked with Gucci Mane, still faces a separate charge of conspiracy to murder an associate of 50 Cent, newsday.com reports. That charge is being handled in federal court in Manhattan.

    It's ridiculous that someone gets a life sentence for selling cocaine. People can put whatever they want into their bodies and no one has a right to tell them what they can or cannot use/abuse. Even though I only drink alcohol on occasion and have never done soft or hard drugs, I don't think that personal vices should be considered as crimes. Especially when cigarettes and alcohol are legal.

    Jay is a Nas stan. 1. Jay-Z begged Nas and AZ to be on "Bring It On" song off the Reasonable Doubt album. But Nas turned it down. 2. Jay-Z begged Nas to be on Dead Presidents so Nas turned him down so he sampled him. 3. Jay-Z sampled Nas voice AGAIN on Crack Game/Rap Game or whatever the fuck. 4. Jay-Z used to rap like the fu-schnickens but tried to switch his shit up when he heard Illmatic 5. The fact that Jay even knew Nas' child's mother is stalker-ish 6. Jay-Z said "Who's the best MC, Jay-Z, Biggie and NAS" before the beef 7. Jay-Z admitted to listening to ALL of Nas albums in Takeover 8. Jay-Z randomly showed up at the recording of "Black Republican" and put himself on that track (No, it wasn't a planned collab) 9. Jay-Z had AZ in the video for Dead Presidents 10. Jay-Z started working with people like Frank Ocean and Jay Electronica after NAS shouted them out and worked with them first 11. Jay-Z tried to get Nas on the Empire State song AND REMIX but Nas refused both 12. Jay-Z invited Nas to perform at the Carnegie Hall show recently I could go on forever...Because Jay has been on Nas' dick forever. This is why Nas called him a "STAN". For years this dude has been seeking out attention from Nas but Nas ignored him so he started sampling him and stalking him, trying to fuck with AZ and his child's mother...Like a weirdo...Then he throws a little stalker fit because Nas has been shunning him, getting angry just like STAN from the song. Nas is mature now, he's grown, I think at some point he just said "Okay, this dude loves me, he's a fan, I might as well be his friend" lol It was never a real "beef" to win or lose. Jay-Z just wanted Nas to acknowledge him all along.

    Jimmy Henchman Rosemond is co-operating with the FEDS. He told them Slim was part of his drug trafficking ring.

According to his August, 07 2013 arrest record, the 36-year-old Aftermath recording artist was booked on an undisclosed misdemeanor, housed, and released all within 30-minutes not only without any word of bond posted, but also no notes of any upcoming court date."
