The 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur as officially become rap's Neverending Story. For years, the mystery surrounding who set the iconic rapper up on that fateful night NYC remained dormant, but it recently found its second wind thanks to a confession by rap figure Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond. A confession, his people are now saying that never actually took place.

After his publicist came forward to deny allegations that Rosemond admitted he had set Pac up, the notorious rap manager's lawyer, Gary Shargel has also stepped up, calling a news story written by Chuck Phillips, in which Phillips claims Rosemond dropped dime on himself to the government, complete bullsh*t.

Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond's lawyer joins his publicist in denying that the convicted Rap manager admitted to involvement in the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur. Earlier this week, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond's publicist vehemently denied that Rosemond admitted to orchestrating the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur. Journalist Chuck Phillips reported than Rosemond made the admission in 2011 during a proffer session with the government, which allows suspects to confess to crimes in exchange for an agreement that the confession would not be used to prosecute them.(HHDX)

In fact, Shargel says that Rosemond denied playing any role at all in the robbery and shooting of the former Death Row rapper.

"The statement by the prosecutor that Jimmy Rosemond had confessed or admitted to being involved in the 1994 shooting of Tupac is totally false," he said. "He categorically and emphatically denied that he had participation or role in that shooting and that was clear from the outset."(MTV)

In other news, MMG spitter Meek Mill is finding some support of his own, from Maybach Music boss Rick Ross. As more details of the now-infamous brawl between Drake and Chris Breezy emerge, some are alleging the Philly spitter may have instigated the beef. Which may have something to do with Mill being denied entry into a NYC club earlier this week.

A rep for the New York Police Department told MTV News that they responded to a call at Tenjune, but after an investigation they concluded that there was no criminality suspected and they left. The incident comes almost two weeks after Meek saw his name pop up in reports circling the club W.i.P. bottle-brawl, which involved members of Drake and Chris Brown's respective entourages. Meek has maintained that while he was inside of W.i.P. that night, he had nothing to do with the melee. Still it seems that he may be experiencing some type of backlash as he was denied entry into Tenjune. "I don't got no love for these clubs that discriminate against a certain race! F--- you...u won't get these racks," the Philadelphia rapper tweeted after being denied entry.(MTV)

Meek was pretty pissed he couldn't get his party on, and while he is catching some of the heat for #BottleGate2012, Ross insists that his young spitter isn't in the business of starting trouble.

The 'Ima Boss' rapper has been accused of instigating the altercation between Drake and Chris at NYC's W.i.P. nightclub, but his Maybach Music boss Rick says he isn't the type to get involved in that kind of drama. "I know Meek. I know the situation he's in. I know where he comes from. I know that's something that he won't get involved in," Ross told MTV's RapFix.(TaleTela)

SOHH Watcha Think: Was Meek blocked from the club because of his affiliation with the Chris/Drake debacle, or was the spot just not very rapper friendly that particular evening?
