G-Unit leader 50 Cent has weighed in on this week’s big headline of incarcerated felon Dexter Isaac admitting to shooting late rapper 2Pac in 1994.
Talking to radio host Funkmaster Flex, 50 said he can not comprehend the sudden confession.
“I think whoever dude saying he was involved, I don’t know why he would say that right now. I think they’re upset with [music mogul] Jimmy [Rosemond]. Because at this point, the statute of limitations would be up on that kind of situation, and he’s saying it without actually damaging his credibility of being a rat by saying the statute of limitation’s up. He was saying that he just feels bad about it, but he knows that Jimmy has some terrible legal problems right now. So to say that is just piling it on him. He’s done, they’re going to wash him up, Flex.” (Hot 97)
Music mogul Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond’s lawyer denied Isaac’s accusations earlier this week.
“It’s a flat out lie,” Rosemond’s lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman told the Daily News. “Dexter Isaac is not claiming this 17 years later to clear his conscience. He’s doing it because he’s told anybody who will listen he doesn’t want to die in prison. He has kids and wants to work off his sentence. He can’t be trusted.” (New York Daily News)
Isaac said his motivation for confessing was to bring closure to Pac’s family.
“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie‘s] mothers some closure.” Isaac said he was comfortable going on record relating to the robbery and shooting, since the statute of limitations had expired. Legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault at this time. Isaac was a lifelong friend of Jimmy Henchmen, who helped the former mogul set up his first company, Henchman Entertainment, in 1989.

Pac’s 1994 shooting was initially reported as an attempted robbery.
Trouble really began for Tupac after he was shot November 30th, 1994 at 12:20 a.m. It set the grounds for his beef with Biggie/Puffy and Bad Boy Records. He was shot 5 times in a recording studio in Times Square. There were many theories on this shooting. The media largely portrayed the shooting as a standard robbery, in which Tupac went for his gun, and was shot. (All Eyez On Me)
