James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, who was formerly the longtime manager for rapper the Game, was arrested today in the New York area due to allegedly orchestrating a cocaine distribution ring, according to MTV. The warrant for his arrest was issued last month, but he has since been on the run before they found him earlier today.
He is being charged without bail for charges of conspiracy to distribute over five kilograms of cocaine from Los Angeles to New York since 2008. A complaint claimed that the drugs were shipped in vacuum-sealed packages filled with mustard to avoid being detected by dogs. Today, he appeared in a court in Brooklyn and was later put in custody. Rosemond did not give a plea.
The 46-year-old was recently in the headlines when Dexter Isaac recently confessed that he was paid by Rosemond to rob and shoot Tupac Shakur back in 1994. Though, that was not the incident that killed the rapper — Tupac’s death would come two years later. Rosemond is also the head of Czar Entertainment, which was founded by him and Bryce Wilson, and houses artists like the Game, Brandy, Akon, Gucci Mane, Sean Kingston, and others.
