James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, who’s already serving life in prison for running a drug operation, was just handed a second life sentence for the Bronx murder of Blood member Lowell Fletcher in 2009.
You might recall Henchman’s son getting slapped by Tony Yayo back in 2009. That incident, which apparently came via orders from 50 Cent, was what fueled Henchman to seek revenge on Fletcher, who was a G-Unit associate. Prosecutors said for years after the Yayo slap, Henchman tried exacting revenge on G-Unit, including setting up a drive-by shooting outside Hot 97 in New York City.
According to prosecutors, Henchman paid Brian “Slim” McCleod with $30,000 worth of cocaine to lure Fletcher to a Bronx corner in September 2009, where Derrick “D” Grant fatally shot him multiple times.
Henchman was also implicated in the shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994 at Quad Studios.
