Jimmy ‘Henchman’ Rosemond Ousted As An Informant?

Jimmy 'Henchman' Rosemond

Jimmy 'Henchman' RosemondHe’s probably the last person you’d think would be labeled a “snitch.” If anything, he’s probably be the anti-snitch within the hip-hop biz. But as they say in show biz, everything isn’t as it seems. And, according to a recent report, notorious music executive Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond is not what he seems …

Rosemond is known for a notorious street reputation, but is his street rep certified? Or is it fabricated?

The New York Daily News recently obtained copies of sealed court documents in which Rosemand is named an informant for state and federal authorities since the mid-1990s.

The court docs say that the music executive, who manages the likes of rapper The Game, has given info to authorities at least three times over the years.

A source said that: “The cases against Rosemond were ongoing until June 2006 — around the same time when authorities sealed many of the documents that refer to Rosemond’s informant status — a legal move often used by the feds to protect a CI that may be actively cooperating with the government. I was able to obtain the files before they were sealed.”

In a proffer from 1997, it’s revealed that Rosemond had a secret meeting with New York District Attorney and two FBI agents, in which he provided information for “the purpose of obtaining leads to other evidence, which may be used in any prosecution”, the document reads.

In another memorandum filing, Rosemond is praised by his legal defense for his “willingness” to be “debriefed by state and federal prosecutors and agents in New York in 1997 and 1998 regarding historical criminal investigations.”

One of Rosemond’s former lawyers cited his repeated cooperation with the authorities while asking for leniency in a Los Angeles gun case from 2000.

These types of actions would the exact opposite of the “no snitching” policy most abide by in the hip-hop biz.

Below are some specifics to the alleged snitching instances as shown in court docs, as reported by the Daily News:

– While Rosemond was held on a drug and gun case in North Carolina in 1996, four inmates plotted a jailbreak and asked him to join. He alerted authorities and spent several days in solitary to avoid retribution, his lawyer at the time wrote in court papers obtained by The News from federal archives.

– In 1997, facing bail-jumping charges in New York, Rosemond gave information about crooked jail officials who altered paperwork to let him post bail.

He made “several monitored phone calls to one of the correction officers,”but the target was suspicious and “reluctant to speak with Mr. Rosemond,” court papers said.

– A year later, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn contacted Rosemond, seeking his cooperation in what documents describe only as a “historical criminal investigation.”

Rosemond was “debriefed at length by federal agents and prosecutors.” The defendant was convicted at trial, “confirming the accuracy of his information provided by Mr. Rosemond to the government,” his then-lawyer noted.

– Before he was sentenced in the L.A. gun case in 2000, Rosemond’s then-lawyer argued for leniency because of his “assistance.” The judge gave him 19 months, citing only the prosecutors’ delay in bringing the case.

Despite the findings Rosemond’s new lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, told the Daily News that his client is no snitch.

“The fact is that prosecutors later claimed he flat-out lied to them, and they weren’t happy about it,” said Lichtman.

He also noted his client never signed a cooperation agreement either. Lichtman continued, calling the paper’s story “nothing short of a targeted assassination attempt”, because of the “government’s inability to convict Jimmy in a court of law”.

“The article in today’s New York Daily News about Jimmy Rosemond is nothing short of a targeted assassination attempt by the government, with an assist from their favorite daily newspaper,” Henchmen’s lawyer said. “Due to the government’s inability to convict Jimmy in a court of law, they have stooped to trying to get him lynched in the street. We are weighing our legal options at this time but we can say in no uncertain terms: Jimmy is not and has never cooperated with law enforcement. Any suggestion otherwise is a damnable, actionable lie.”

  3. “And did I mention/ Promised a payback, Jimmy Henchman/ In due time/ I knew you bitch niggas was listening/ The world is mine/ Set me up/ Wet me up/ Niggas stuck me up/ Heard the guns bust/ But you tricks never shut me up” he could either be implicating Henchmen Management/Entertainment in the shooting or the verse is split and he is just talking about another beef he had with them. Interpret how you want, but Tupac was telling the truth when he said ” song, (This be the realest shit I ever wrote)

  9. He looks like a rat. I don’t believe his lawyer on that “goverment is trying to get him assassinated” trip either. Cmon now, that dude ain’t no real threat for the government to plot against. I’d believe that if he was on some revolutionary MLK, Malcolm X, 2PAC type of sh*t.

    Shipyard is a rrrraaaaattttt. ;-)

  12. I feel you Shipyard. if niggaz was so gansta they wld quetly kioll the rats so the streets can eat. From all the big dope dealer stories I saw one thing. The hood was eating and everyone was making some paper. But the acts of a few morons fucced it all up and when it came time to get time them punk azz niggaz could not keep their traps shut. Niggaz in the street too scared to kill so snitched keep the hood fucced up.

  13. Pac peep’d game way back on dem niggaz. same niggaz that got Busta Rhymes assistant killed. Copland niggaz in the game deep. T.I., Rick Ross, 50cent, Henchman, theGame all working for the Po-lice playa! These niggaz bending ova for the cops and that dirty money. Beware of P-Diddy something tells me that nigga drawls ain’t clean either. bet he had a hand in Biggie’s death. say word motherfuckers!

  14. word!!!! Im A take dat 2 my grave!! DIDDY HAD BIGGIE KILLED!! if he didnt,he know who killed em. Dam shame tho about henchman being a snitch. Im gone say it once and for all…STAY INDIE PEOPLE AND MAKE DAT LOCAL MONEY!! I sell 1000 cds thru disksmakers and do 10 grand a month!! You spend a grand and make TEN GRAND.. Sounds like a nice turn to me!? Wut yall think!? HOLLAAA!!!!

  15. Henchmen been a snitch. wonder he still alive huh? It’s a well known fact that niggaz in the rap game who got money are snitchin’, rollin ova on other niggaz, leaving niggaz hangin’ for the courts, etc.. just look at all the niggaz who catch stupid cases and get silly years like Shyne, Rass Kass, etc..rap niggaz puttin’ hits on each other like it ain’t shit too. how you think Gucci Mane had to kill a nigga? because Jackleg Jeezy(Cop nigga) sent some killaz to his house. Gucci wasn’t havin that shit though potna! then look at Dollla, I truly believe T.I. set that nigga up when he realize Dolla wasn’t no punk and fucking him in the ass was a no-go so he had him killed. Dirty game yall….protect ya’ fuckin’ neck outchey!

  16. RECOGNIZE: If Jimmy Henchmen was really a snitch then them peoples would not be bending over backwards to get a grand jury going at him.

    Straight up, I bet Chuck Phillips is the one working for the feds: COINTELPRO.

    That’s why he begging some n*gg* to snitch on Henchmen in front of that grand jury. He probably get paid if homie snitch on Henchmen.

  17. great article. Henchman and his stupid 100 million dollar lawsuits is a snitch and a sissy and he probably set up 2Pac

  18. I’ll bet $100.00 to to a box 0f doberman dog shit; T.I had nothing to do with Buck’s aka Dolla’s murder. Should have been at Buck’s aka Dolla’s murder trial in L.A. Some things in that trial were picture perfect clear. I Love Lies, Wooden nickels,trickeration,and perpetration; because there’s a whole lot of that. But guess what, at the end of a day,a month,and a full moon ain’t nothing left but the truth and there is only one truth.

  19. It’s easy to call someone a snitch but make sure you can authenicate it. Altering paperwork is done in the hoods all the time. Snitches stay committing crimes; then they grab folks from their hood or other hoods to do the time. Is it possible that someone wants Jimmy Henchman’s position in entertainment? Or do they just want him out of position. You know once you become a finanical champ there’s always a plant trying to seek your camp.

  20. In all due respect and I do not know The Game and neither did “Baby Loon” and I do not think Game is a snitch; but I often wonder where did he get those lyrics from when Game put “Baby Loon” in his track. And I don’t believe those lyrics came from the sheriffs homicide division. “Baby Loon” would have told Game; Since you want to use my name to glorify the record labels payday – break off the estate and we’ll all be straight.

  21. Check out you tube videos supercandybrown. I talk about federal professional operatives, CRI’s, CI’s snitches and rats. They all move around like first cousins in fact. And nine times out of ten snitches are usually someone you know or someone you opened your door too; so they could spread their hate dust all over you.

  22. Part of a snitches role is to trick people out of theirs lives that they can’t control. Snitches violate the laws of nature. You can own cars, houses, shoes, diamonds and boats but you don’t own people. It’s a shame that the people have disfranchised themselves from the real operations and conduct of informants. There needs to be a reality show on snitches and how they create and execute crimes and then flip someone else out of their life to do the time. COLD GAME. DEADLY TOO!

  23. I see no one has authenicated any information on Mr. Henchman as an “INFORMANT”. Where are the “PROFFER” hearing reports or the tape recording of the hearing that supports his corroboration on criminal investigations. Can you provide us with sworn affadavit in which he would have taken a sworn oath; and that oath would not have been taken by the notary republic located at the corner store.

  24. Well summer is near. “NEIGHBOR-HOOD PICNICS” will be in full affect. Now you gotta watch out for “PIC-A-NIGGA
    SNITCH FESTIVALS”. That where the snitches set the stage for the brothers they plan to pick today for the “FEDS” posted up down the way ready and able to take another brother away today. Watch those “TRAY DAY” picnics.

  25. youtube video supercandybrown – Real brothers get tricked out of their lives to die thats how Snitch brothers make it to the industry to shine. I thought talent and performing arts got you to the industry. In the rap game they say they G’s but if you can pull their judicial sealed records they turn out to be snithes and flees sacrificing your kids so they can make it to the industry.
    Jimmy Henchman made a mistake when he didn’t check out those brothers who brought “the Game” to his Plate. It damn well wasn’t Baby Loon or Koolie. R.I.P Real brothers get murdered to die thats how snitch brothers shine. But they “G’s RIGHT!
    Jimmy Henchman made a mistake he should have did a background

  26. We have some very talented unfound uncrowned rappers of today. They ain’t delivering those old dated lyrics from back in the day NIGGAZ, BITCHES and GATS. They’re minds went way past that. Some of them are breaking down snitches so cold; it’ll set a white man free so a black man can breathe. We’re short on doctors and lawyers and the snitches got the plantation setting before us. This generation needs LAWYERS and CEO’s so they can show the next generation how it really goes. There is not a hood that was mad at Johnnie Cochran as a matter of fact they sad that we lost him. Johnnie Cochran helped a lot of brothers in the industry today but “NOT” one of them came back to “HOODS” and opened up a non-profit Johnnie Cochran law school for the youth of today. I guess that would be to much like right. Puffy if you spent as much money on a Johnnie Cochran law school as you do on tooth picks you might be saying something today! Or pay the brothers that you owe they’ll put the money where it suppose to go; Obama went to LAW SCHOOL too; whenever you get ready!

  27. dat nigga is n 1 of the 5 buroughs! smokin a blunt..gettin his paper together..cause when he hit the unit! he gotta havw comissionry/and protection..eastcoast bitch! man the dick you gonna take is a mile long!

  28. I’m a snitch, all day long. I’ll have your bitch ass locked up wearing a thong. You F ing cowards never had a fight, but you put up these airs and grab a mike. If you come to my hood with your animal ways, I’ll shoot you in the head and rejoyce while you decay. So all of you hip hoppers you want people to think that you a crazy, one day all of you will be pushing up a daisy.

  29. Too bad that a brotha must be taken away blind, Hell, the only crime committed is against his own kind. While the brothers that studied hard and made their parents proud, sit back and thank God that they did’nt follow that hip hop crowd. The sisters believe that having class is having a big a s s. They don’t relize that they’re raising a grown ass boo. If your feel that it’s your sisterly deed to raise your man. It least give him a game plan. Pull up your pants, comb your damn hair, while your running around claiming to be a player. Awwwwe shit big man, you done committed a crime but you’re not a big enough man to stand up and do your time. Hold this gun baby hide it quick, by the way when your doing you gun charge I’ll have another chick. Against your own kind you commit unhuman acts, while you ride around in your big cadillacs.
