During a "Queen For A Day" proffer session last year Jimmy Rosemond confessed to his involvement in the 1994 shooting at Quad Studios.
Although there has been much chatter about James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond’s involvement in the 1994 ambush at New York City’s Quad Studios that left rapper Tupac Shakur shot five times, up until now there has been no direct evidence linking him to the crime.
But an official transcript obtained by The Village Voice, Rosemond’s drug trial includes statements made by a U.S. prosecutor who refers to Rosemond admitting to his involvement in the 1994 shooting.
The attack on Tupac triggered a bicoastal rampage that played out in songs and videos generating billions of dollars for global music corporations and left a trail of body bags from Manhattan to Beverly Hills, culminating in the murders of both Tupac and his nemesis, the Notorious B.I.G.
Before he was assassinated, Tupac recorded a song called "Against All Odds," in which he blamed Rosemond for orchestrating the assault at the Quad: "Jimmy Henchman. . . You set me up, wet me up... stuck me up. But you never shut me up."
“Now, in particular, there are some statements where the defendant Rosemond spoke about acts of violence Mr. Shargel made comments about the origin of the Chuck Phillips article, which has to do with the shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994, in particular, the defendant has made admission that he was involved in this particular shooting,” said prosecutor Soumya Dayananda in a sidebar testimony according to official transcripts.
Rosemond admitted to his part in the shooting during a “Queen For A Day” proffer session with the government last year. Rosemond’s confession allegedly came shortly after Dexter Isaac came forward as the ringleader of the attack.
Rosemond’s drug trial which began last month stems from his involvement in a drug ring involving millions of dollars’ worth of cocaine.
