Jimmy Henchman's Murder-For-Hire Conviction Overturned, New Trial Ordered

Czar Entertainment Founder lands a legal victory. 

Czar Entertainment founder Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond’s murder for-hire-conviction was overturned Tuesday (Nov. 1), reports CBS News New York.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court ruled that Rosemond will receive a new trail due to errors made by the judge in his case for the 2009 murder of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.

In a statement to All Hip-Hop, Rosemond thanked family and friends for supporting him throughout the court battle, as well as the series Unjust Justice for “exposing the inequality and injustice” involving the case.

Further in the statement, the 51-year-old Brooklyn native blasted former federal prosecutor Todd Kiminsky and “his insisted informants,” which includes Rosemond's former associate Akil Abdullah, who testified against him in court.

“I will let God judge you for what you’ve done to me, but now it’s time to fix what you’ve done,” vowed Rosemond, before closing out with a message to former friends and the music industry.

“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,” he proclaimed.

Rosemand was originally sentenced to life in prison (plus 20 years( for Fletcher's murder. According to prosectors, the slaying came out of retaliation for Fletcher and Tony Yayo assaulting Rosemond's then 14-year-old son, during an on-going feud between 50 Cent and the former music manager.

But attorney Michael Rayfield believes that the latest legal victory is a “major step,” on Rosemond’s “path to justice.”

Despite winning a new trial, Rosemond is serving a life sentence for a slew of charges involving drug trafficking. However, the newly-overturned conviction could set the stage for a dismissal of addition charges as the same witnesses were used to convict Rosemond following his 2011 arrest on charges of cocaine trafficking, money laundering, and more.

Prosecutors argued that Rosemond used dealings within the music industry as a front for a multi-million cocaine operation, which led to his conviction in 2013.

Rosemond founded Czar Entertainment in 2006. At its peak, the company’s client list included of Gucci Mane, The Game, Brandy, Sean Kingston, Salt-N-Pepa and Akon.

New York City's 'Hot 97' Will Not Play Tekashi 6ix9ine's Music After His Prison Release

With 6ix9ine expected to come home soon, reportedly to a record deal worth $10 million, New York City's Hot 97 radio station is making it known that they will not play his music.

According to a report by TMZ, an executive from the radio station confirmed that they are not planning on playing 6ix9ine's music upon his release from prison. Hot 97's exec admits that the station has never been a big supporter of the rapper. They also dislike the Brooklyn rapper's decision to testify against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates.

This also includes possibly banning the rapper from Summer Jam concert. TMZ  reported that the "Gummo" rapper is too much of a liability to preform at the celebrated concert.

Last year, Hot 97 personality Ebro, host of Ebro in the Morning, traded shots with 6ix9ine after the rapper berated Ebro on "Stoopid."

The executive states  that unless there's a public uproar that demands the station to play an overly successful song, then the company would consider it.
