Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond is a fugitive from federal authorities after failing to turn himself in following an indictment for cocaine distribution. In a lengthy statement to the media that plead his case as an innocent victim of a smear campaign, Rosemond had suggested last week that he would hand himself over to authorities.
The music executive, who currently manages West Coast rapper Game, apparently changed his mind, and now federal marshals and the DEA have reportedly initiated a nationwide manhunt.
Rosemond, 46, is accused of shipping hundreds of kilos of cocaine to New York in music equipment cases as a part of drug ring that also includes his brother, Kesner. The executive faces 15 to 20 years in federal prison on the drug charges alone.
Henchman's whereabouts have been unknown for weeks.
