Federal agents are on the hunt for hip-hop entrepreneur Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, who has worked closely with Sean Kingston, Game, Brandy, Akon and more. A fugitive warrant has been issued for his capture in connection with his indictment for involvement in a cocaine distribution operation.
Rosemond was indicted last week for his alleged participation in the illegal coke ring, and has since disappeared. “Although a federal prosecutor has told me that there is an arrest warrant out, they have refused to provide me with the warrant or a copy of the charges,” said his lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman.
The rap mogul has a strong standing in the music industry with his company Czar Entertainment, through which he managed several high profile acts. As manager of Game, he became involved in the beef between his client and G-Unit, whose member Tony Yayo assaulted his son outside of the Czar offices.
UPDATE: Jimmy Henchman is still on the lamb after an arrest warrant was issued last week stemming from his connection to a cocaine distribution ring. Before he turns himself over to authorities later today, he released a statement to XXLMag.com declaring that the charges are bogus and that prosecutors are using the media to slander his name.
“There’s absolutely no evidence that supports my involvement in any of this, yet I have been implicated with someone I have no associations with,” he says in the statement, which notes intentional libel from writers and media.
