If you're a fan of Serial and Making a Murderer, get ready for your next addiction.
Digital news media company Go To Ground have announced an upcoming documentary web series titled Unjust Justice – The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes, investigating the story of one hip hop’s most enigmatic executives, James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, who is currently serving a life sentence in prison.
Rosemond’s reputation in the hip hop world was damaged by his alleged involvement with the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur when the rapper was at Quad Studios in New York City. Rosemond resurrected his career, however, and went on to manage stars like The Game, Sean Kingston, Brandy, Gucci Mane and Akon.
Everything changed in 2012, when Rosemond was convicted on drug trafficking and murder charges. Unjust Justice — The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes will shed light on a case riddled with inconsistent information offered by career criminals, federal informants and a Los Angeles Times journalist who provided false and damaging information to government officials.
The web series will also delve into the mystery of Tupac's death, the business of hip hop business and Rosemond’s conviction in both a drug conspiracy case, and the case of a murder-for-hire of an ex-convict who assaulted Rosemond’s then 14-year-old son. The filmmakers will review trial documents, wiretaps, and other related materials to discover whether or not justice was truly served.
To supplement the web series, investigative reporter Don Sikorski and hip hop journalist Bonz Malone will host a podcast called The Rosemond Tapes, which will feature recorded conversations with Rosemond from inside a federal penitentiary about his past, present, and future judicial proceedings.
Unjust Justice — The Jimmy Rosemond Tapes will debut on February 1. Cop a look at the trailer for the riveting series, below:
