*The lawyer for hip-hop mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, accused in an online post of orchestrating a plot to rob rapper Tupac Shakur in the mid-1990s, says the claims are outrageous and false, reports the AP.
Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman said today his client did not hire anyone to rob and shoot Shakur.
As previously reported, the accusations about the 1994 robbery and shooting were posted online at allhiphop.com and are attributed to Dexter Isaac, who says he was hired by Rosemond.
Isaac is serving a life sentence in an unrelated murder-for-hire-case. Rosemond is wanted by federal authorities on cocaine charges.
