According to Isaacs, he shot and robbed Shakur after being paid $2,500 by James Rosemond, who goes by the name Jimmy Henchman. Rosemond, who has managed talent such as The Game, Brandy and Akon, is having a really bad week. On Tuesday, he was arrested in New York City and charged with heading a cocaine trafficking ring. Yes, a world of trouble.
There’s no word on whether charges will be filed against Rosemond regarding the Shakur shooting since the statute of limitations has passed regarding the crime, probably a prime reason why Isaacs has finally decided to come clean after all this time.
Meanwhile, the 1996 shooting that resulted in Shakur’s death is yet to be solved, and the same thing goes for the 1997 fatal shooting of rapper Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace) – both victims in the so-called East-West hip-hop war.
Here’s a question to consider: “Why is that the murders of two of Hip Hops most prominent figures still are unsolved after all of these years?”
There were witnesses to each fatal shooting. There were other people around when the killings took place. Why wouldn’t anyone come forth? Wallace died after a party. I’ve been to parties, there’s always someone hanging around after a party. But no one saw anything?
Shakur died in Vegas. I’ve been to Vegas…there’s people around 24 hours a day. But no one saw anything? Why has no one provided any information? Years later and no one has seen a thing.
This continues to be a reminder of a dark period in Hip Hop music and still does not provide the ultimate closure that the fans of Tupac and Biggie deserve; not to mention the mothers of each artist.
I’ll be honest with you. Although there’s a cloud surrounding Isaac’s revelation about the ’94 shooting, it steps me toward closure in the death of Tupac, even though we still don’t know who killed him.
I think I’m like a lot of other Tupac fans, I just needed to hear something.
