''The Defendant Has Made Admission That He Was Involved''
James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond’s involvement in the 1994 ambush at New York City’s Quad Studios that resulted in rapper Tupac Shakur being shot five times has been confirmed. An official transcript obtained by The Village Voice reveals that during Rosemond's drug trial, statements were made by a U.S. prosecutor that referred to the former music manager's involvement in the infamous shooting.
“Now, in particular, there are some statements where the defendant [Rosemond] spoke about acts of violence…Mr. Shargel made comments about the origin of the Chuck Phillips article, which has to do with the shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994; in particular, the defendant has made admission that he was involved in this particular shooting,” said prosecutor Soumya Dayananda in a sidebar testimony according to official transcripts. Rosemond admitted to his part in the shooting during a proffer session with the government last year. His confession reportedly was shortly after Dexter Isaac came forward as the organizer of the attack on Shakur.
