Czar entertainment founder has his murder case thrown out by a judge.
Legendary hip-hop mogul Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond has had his murder conviction over turned paving the way for a new trial. Rosemond is currently serving 2 life sentences for drug trafficking and arranging the murder of the man that attacked his son soon after he was released from prison for that very assault.
Rosemond is the founder of Czar Entertainment and managed some of the biggest acts in hip hop including The Game, Sean Kingston, Brandy, Gucci Mane, Salt-n-Pepa and Akon. In 2002 he negotiated the mega fight between Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson which drew the biggest purse in history at the time. In the negotiations, Rosemond demanded that after one million pay per view buys the boxers would split the money 50/50 with ShowTime and HBO. This move was unprecedented but Showtime/HBO relented and both boxers walked away with over $40 million apiece as the fight generated $107 million in pay per view buys which is still the record for a heavyweight fight.
In a statement Rosemand thanked family and friends and issued a warning to the people that he felt set him up and fake friends that turned their backs on him, “I will let God judge you for what you’ve done to me, but now it’s time to fix what you’ve done,” Rosemond said, “To my so-called friends and the music business that have abandoned me, the devil is a liar and now you’ve seen the devil and its details.”
