Former rap mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond and six accomplices have been indicted for the murder of a man close to 50 Cent and G-Unit.
Lowell Fletcher, aka Lodi Mack, had served almost two years in prison, for striking Rosemond’s young son, James Rosemond Jr.
The assault happened at the height of a bitter feud between 50 Cent and Game, who was managed by Rosemond’s company, Czar Entertainment.
Authorities claim Rosemond arranged for the murder as retaliation for the assault on his son, which occurred in front of the offices of Violator Management.
At the time, Rosemond’s Czar Entertainment and Violator Management were both located on 25th street in Manhattan.
During Rosemond’s cocaine distribution trial, violent acts
were not introduced as evidence against the mogul.
But testimony indicated that Rosemond purchased a cache of weapons and delivered them to Queens.
Once there, two associates, Brian McCleod and Torae Jackson, allegedly carried out the murder, in exchange for a few kilos of cocaine.
In related news, James Rosemond, who was convicted of cocaine distribution earlier this month, is facing a life sentence in prison.
Rosemond was found guilty of running “The Rosemond Organization,” a cocaine-based operation that imported hundreds of kilograms of he drug from the West Coast.
The gang then distributed the drugs
throughout New York City while funneling the proceeds back West and through Czar Entertainment.
