"LMAO THIS BOY SOLVED EVERY CRIME IN NEW YORK. Old gangsta jimmy,go a head tell some more s--t killer. Lol,” Fif wrote on his Instagram, according to Hip Hop DX.
The note was a caption to side-by-side memes, one being of a pic of Rosemond with "I'm a drop a a dime on theses n---as" sprawled across his photo.
Rosemond, the former CEO of artist management company Czar Entertainment, is on trial in New York for allegedly hiring a hit man to kill G-Unit affiliate Lowell "Lodi Mack" Fletcher. Fletcher was fatally shot in the Bronx in 2009, an apparent retaliation for a beef that stemmed from an argument Rosemond had with G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo before an awards ceremony at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in 2007. Fletcher was 32.
Last Wednesday (Feb. 12), a witness, Khalil Abdullah, 40, testified that Rosemond hired a man, Brian "Slim" McLeod, to lure Fletcher to his death. Another man, Derrick Grant carried out the deed, he said. "Slim's man came out of nowhere and clapped the dude up."
Abdullah maintains that he wasn't at the scene and added that Henchman was in Miami at the time.
Henchman's lawyers insist that Abdullah is attempting to get time taken off the eight-year sentence he was just handed for his part in the multi-million-dollar drug trafficking case that resulted in Rosemond getting a life sentence last October.
Rosemond was convicted for charges of using his company, which managed former G-Unit rapper Game, among many more artists, as a front for shipping and distributing cocaine around the nation.
Abdullah said that during the argument with Yayo, a Yayo affiliate flashed a gun, and that set things off. Abdullah had someone shoot up Yayo's Bentley, he said. "He just dumped some rounds into the Bentley. Me and [Rosemond] just chuckled."
The situation escalated in 2007 when Yayo allegedly slapped Rosemond's son in the head when he saw him walking towards his father's place of business.
Abdullah also testified that Rosemond hired him to shoot-to-injure beloved industry executive Chris Lighty, who was managing 50 at the time, but he opted to not do that.
50 cent, née Curtis Jackson, has not been named in any of the violence. The two men had legal beef in 2006, when Czar Entertainment used some of 50's interviews in a DVD released about his namesake, Kevin "50 Cent" Martin. It was settled in court, resulting in a charity being created to support Martin's children.
