West Coast rapper Game recently provided an update on his manager Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond after turning himself over to authorities on drug trafficking charges earlier this summer.
While Rosemond remains behind bars, Game said his manager is still keeping his head up.
“I talked to Jimmy, he was in good spirits,” Game said in an interview. “Well, the best spirits anybody could be in that position. I was actually surprised to hear him laugh and just be cool about it…Until that situation unfolds, you never know what it is — I wish him the best and I’m out here holding it down. My loyalty lies with my band of brothers, which you’re one of, and I’ll never fake, never front, never turn on my friends.” (MTV)
In June, Game also vouched his loyalty toward Henchman.
“Jimmy’s my brother and it’s ride or die,” Game said. “Unfortunate situation, but we gonna keep our heads up and hope for the best…Sometimes, the government be trapping you and flipping stuff and you never know until the case is all rolled out and everything at the end to see how it plays out. We can’t even see Bin Laden‘s body, so why we believe in something they saying about Jimmy?” (Hot 97)
Rosemond’s run from law enforcement ended around mid-June in Manhattan.
The hip-hop mogul spotted the agents at about noon as he walked out of the W Hotel in Union Square, sources said. Once on the street, Rosemond walked north and tried to outrun the agents until he was finally arrested on 21st Street and Park Avenue South. The US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn charged Rosemond in a complaint today with orchestrating the delivery of multiple kilos of cocaine from Los Angeles to the New York City metropolitan area. Millions of dollars in drug proceeds went from New York back to California, the complaint charged. (New York Post)
Additional reports claim Rosemond is facing life behind bars.
Rosemond, 46, the CEO and co-founder of Czar Entertainment, is scheduled to make his initial appearance in Brooklyn federal court, following his arrest Tuesday morning by U.S. Marshals and agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted on the charges, according to federal prosecutors. (Reuters)
