Game Speaks on Jimmy Henchman Allegations

Rapper cautions fans against taking accusations at face value.

Published June 27, 2011

Speaking out for the first time since his manager, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond was captured by federal agents and charged with criminal cocaine distribution, Game told Hot 97's Angie Martinez that he still rides for the man whom he considers a part of his family.


"Jimmy's my brother and you know, it's ride or die," Game said. "It's an unfortunate situation, but we're gonna keep our heads up and hope for the best."


Game said observers shouldn't be so quick to take prosecutors at their word.


"Sometimes the government be entrapping you and flipping stuff. You never really know until the case is all rolled out," he said.


As for Rosemond's alleged involvement in the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur, Game said he wasn't really in a position to comment. 


"In '94, when supposedly that happened, I was 13," he said. "I'm far removed from that. I didn't know Jimmy, I didn't know Pac I didn't know nobody... and again, it's just an accusation." 


Game pointed out that Dexter Isaac, the person who claims Rosemond orchestrated the Tupac shooting, is serving life in prison and could have ulterior motives. 


"Cats will say anything to see the light of day again," he said


Despite the media firestorm that has erupted around Rosemond, Game said he wasn't worried about being damaged professionally by his affiliation with the beleaguered mogul.


"Controversy has fueled my entire career and still to this day I walk with my head held high," he said.
