On October 25th 2013, Rosemond was sentenced to life for cocaine trafficking. Currently he is on trial for the murder of G-Unit associate Lowell Fletcher who in 2009 was lured to his death by goons allegedly hired by Rosemond.
But the beef goes deeper than we all imagined. According to New York Daily News, a former Henchman employee now turned informant named Khalil Abdullah cited an argument between both crews at the Apollo Theater, where a different G-Unit associate flashed a gun at Henchman, as the final straw.
He testified that this moment in question prompted Henchman to have Tony Yayo’s Bentley car shot up while parked on Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
Interestingly enough Sean “Diddy” Combs tried to play peacekeeper by sitting down both Rosemond and 50 Cent’s then manager Chris Lighty, but things went awry. “Chris ended up mushing [Rosemond] in the face,” Khalil said. “Puff jumped in between them and broke it up.”
Things further escalated when Tony Yayo and company were accused of slapping up Rosemond’s son in 2007.
On February 15th, 50 Cent took to Instagram to mock his incarcerated rival by posting a picture Rosemond next to the “Big Head Rico” character from the film Belly, who is most noted for telling on his rivals.
“LMAO THIS BOY SOLVED EVERY CRIME IN NEW YORK. Old gangsta jimmy,go a head tell some more sh-t killer. Lol,” Ferrari joked.
