After Bobby Shmurda’s lawyer declared that “the government hates rap,” incarcerated music executive/drug ring leader Jimmy Henchman weighed in on the matter, pointing to a war on hip-hop.
Shmurda and his GS9 crew were arrested at Quad City Studios in New York City last week, as part of a 100-count indictment involving shootings, drug trafficking, assault, conspiracy and murder charges.
“With everything happening with Bobby Shmurda there’s a need for a rap expert on deck, because the culture is under attack,” Henchman said in a statement to AllHipHop. “If they can use 50’s lyrics against me as an executive to prove murder then we all in trouble.”
Earlier this month, Henchman was found guilty for orchestrating the murder of G-Unit affiliate, Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher, who was killed in retaliation for G-Unit’s Tony Yayo slapping his son.
Apparently, they used lyrics from 50 Cent to help convict the former hip-hop executive. Fif previously addressed the incident on the 2014 song “Hold On,” off his Animal Ambition album.
