Former music executive James Rosemand aka Jimmy Henchman was sentenced to life in prison on Friday, October 25 in a Brooklyn federal courthouse for cocaine trafficking. Also, he faces more charges. 

Reports New York Newsday:

Rosemond, known in the rap world as “Jimmy Henchman,” still faces separate charges in federal court in Manhattan of conspiracy to murder an associate of the rapper 50 Cent.

Rosemond was convicted of overseeing what officials said was an $11 million a year bicoastal cocaine trafficking business that used a musical equipment shipping company as cover to transport cocaine and cash.

“His image as a music impresario was a cover for the real Jimmy Rosemond, a thug in a suit,” said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

Last year, Henchman admitted to setting up Tupac Shakur’s infamous shooting at Quad Studios during an attempted robbery in 1994. According to AllHipHop, Henchman will be seeking a new trial.
