James Rosemond, a one-time prominent hip-hop manager who was convicted in 2012 of drug trafficking, was sentenced to life in prison in Brooklyn federal court on Friday.
Rosemond, known in the rap world as “Jimmy Henchman,” still faces separate charges in federal court in Manhattan of conspiracy to murder an associate of the rapper 50 Cent.
Rosemond was convicted of overseeing what officials said was an $11 million a year bicoastal cocaine trafficking business that used a musical equipment shipping company as cover to transport cocaine and cash.
“His image as a music impresario was a cover for the real Jimmy Rosemond, a thug in a suit,” said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

Mettyyyy good morning. Where is everyone? A guess a me alone up suh early.
If that man get life I guess Flippa will be getting 25% of that.
Life!?! :cd Damn Jimmy.
And another one bites the dust :cd
I don’t condone the use or sale of illicit drugs; however, life in prison for drug trafficking, while pedophiles and rapist get a few years is asinine… At any rate, is this what Flippa should be looking forward to?
Unfortunately, running a $11 million per year drug trafficking empire is not done without the attendant murders and other heinous crimes, not to mention all the lives that are ruined by the poisonous drugs that have reak havoc on our black communities. IMHO, ALL drug dealersi dealers should get life, period. Maybe the thought of a life sentence will stop more of of young men from entering the trade. From where I stand, a large number of murders in this country is directly linked to illicit drugs. Lucky for this guy he is not living in some countries where the penalty for drug trafficking is a death sentence.
Morning Met n Letters, same thing mi did a think Nile.
Another one bites the dust!
So true..Drug dealers get longer sentence than murderers,rapist and pedophiles that is absolutely ridiculous!
