Don’t expect for 50 Cent and Jimmy Henchman (née James Rosemond) to bury the hatchet, they’re still very much committed to their ongoing conflict. Even with Henchman behind bars their feud trudges forward.
The latest chapter comes in response to Henchman’s cover story in Don Diva magazine, where he denies being a snitch, and pegs himself as a victim of disloyalty. “The government skillfully and systematically went after those around me," he asserts in an excerpt from the interview posted by AllHipHop. “God Bless them. If any of them were dying of thirst, I would have bled from my wrist to save them. That has proven to be my Achilles' heel.”
He also addressed 50 Cent stating, “One thing for sure is that Curtis [50 Cent] was scheduled to testify at my murder trail but reneged on the prosecutors at the last minute. Clowns do clown things.”
The Queens MC responded by posting a meme of Henchman on Instagram, and calling him a lying rodent. “[RAT ALERT]Old Gangsta Jimmy still talking. He done told everything he could think of. now he making up s--t LMAO.”
Henchman, founder of Czar Entertainment, is known for once managing a list of music clients including Game, Sean Kingston, and Gucci Mane, all while building a multi-million dollar cocaine enterprise on the side. The New York native has been convicted of using his company as a front for drug trafficking and money-laundering schemes. It is believed that Game and his rivalry with 50 Cent led to the death of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, who was gunned down on a Bronx street corner back in 2009. Fletcher was reportedly lured to the location by one of Henchman’s workers and shot again and again. His death came after Fif’s crew roughed up Henchman’s teenage son.
Henchman’s murder-for-hire trial resulted in a hung jury. Should he be retried, the 49-year-old faces the death penalty.
