Jimmy Henchman found guilty for murder of G-Unit affiliate

The former hip-hop exec will serve additional life sentences.

Former hip-hop promoter and mogul James Rosemond has been found guilty in New York for ordering the murder of a G-Unit associate in 2009.

Also known to many in the rap world as Jimmy Henchman, the former Czar Entertainment mogul was convicted on Tuesday (November 29) on four counts of murder-for-hire charges by a federal jury. Each of the counts carry a life sentence. Rosemond was accused of hiring a crew to shoot Lowell "Lodi Mack" Fletcher, an associate of 50 Cent's rap group G-Unit, as payback for an assault on Rosemond's 14-year-old son. Fletcher was shot and killed in 2009.

Rosemond, who represented stars like Game, Sean Kingston, and Mike Tyson to name a few, was already serving two life sentences for separate drug and gun convictions.

Rosemond's lawyer David Touger told New York Post he'll appeal the court's decision and claims witnesses in the case were only trying to reduce their own jail sentences.
