50 Cent Responds To Jimmy Henchman’s Double Life Sentencing

50 Cent, who’s had a decades-long contentious relationship with James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, took to Instagram to weigh in on the latter's double life sentence.

50 Cent, who’s had a decades-long contentious relationship with James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, took to Instagram to weigh in on the latter's double life sentence, as reported by AllHipHop. “See this is why we have to avoid negativity, and keep a positive vibe,” Fifty wrote before referring to Rosemond as a rat.

Since 2013, Rosemond has been in prison serving life for conducting a drug trafficking system. In a year prior to this sentencing, Rosemond was charged with a murder-for-hire plot of Lowell “Lodi Mack” Flectcher. The G-Unit affiliate's death occurred in 2009 following the 2007 assault of Rosemond’s then-14-year-old son. Rosemond was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

The teen was traveling to his father’s office in New York City to conduct his internship, when G-Unit member Tony Yayo approached him, alongside members of his entourage. The boy was slapped, which proved to be consequential for Yayo who only had to complete 10 days of community service. According to Complex, Fletcher confessed he played a major role in the teen’s assault and carried out a sentence for two years. His release from prison in 2009 resulted in his murder.

Despite remaining one of the prominent suspects in Fletcher’s death, Rosemond told the news site that he’s innocent and never ordered a hit on Fletcher. “When [a contact] told me he had a way to get to Lowell Fletcher, I asked if he could bring him to me,” Rosemond told Complex in 2017. “What these guys went ahead and did was ended up killing Lowell Fletcher, which was not what I asked them to do.” In 2016, Rosemond's conviction was overturned due to misconduct on the judge's part, so a re-trial was underway.

Now, AllHipHop published that Rosemond has been handed a double two life sentences for Fletcher’s orchestrated death. The news site also notes this web of controversy was catalyzed by a rift between G-Unit and The Game (Rosemond was his manager), and several shootings in New York City. After the news, the 53-year-old penned an open letter for AllHipHop where he continues to promote his innocence.

“There is a sickness in this system,” he wrote. “My trial was covered up and drown out with unrelated shootings, hip hop gang fairy tales and non-existing ‘rap wars’ that never existed.” Rosemond also said he served as an example for others who tried to elevate their careers.

“When a trial isn’t about fact-finding to elicit the truth and condemn the guilty then it’s not about justice,” he wrote. “My trial was about grabbing a headline and building a prosecutor’s personal career.”

Boosie Badazz Defends Bill Cosby, Slams Harvey Weinstein In New Video

Boosie Badazz has never strayed away from making controversial comments, and his recent ones defending the incarcerated Bill Cosby are no different.

Mr. Wipe Me Down took to his Instagram page to discuss his beliefs that the man formerly known as “America’s Dad” should be a free man. Cosby is currently serving a three to 10-year sentence for three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

"Ay check this out, y'all better wake up this racist a** motherf**kin' world," Boosie says in the video. "This armadillo lookin' b**ch Harvey Weinstein been f**kin' people 100 days ago, and he can pay for all the sh*t he did, all the f**kin' rapes he done did, but Bill Cosby couldn't pay for his sh*t. The Jell-O man had the money. That show you it's a racist motherf**kin' world."

He continues by stating that Cosby’s crimes when he was a man of a much younger age, and the only reason he was jailed for the crimes was because of the color of his skin.

Harvey Weinstein recently reached a multi-million dollar provisional deal with his accusers to settle his sexual misconduct civil lawsuits. Many of Weinstein’s accusers came forward in mid-2017 to discuss that the disgraced Hollywood producer acted inappropriately with them, which was one of the catalysts for the start of the #MeToo movement.

A Chicago Bartender Spat On Eric Trump And He Wasn't Sure Why

Eric Trump went to Chicago's Aviary cocktail bar Tuesday, (June 25) but instead of enjoying a drink, the 35-year-old said an employee spat on him.

Trump told Breitbart News the encounter was "disgusting" and was a bit taken back since he and his family promote "tolerance."

“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump said. “For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”

The woman was taken into custody by Secret Service but later released. The Chicago police department was on hand to deal with a "law enforcement matter.”

Trump's Chicago incident comes as his father's administration is being accused of keeping men, women, and children in concentration camps at the U.S.- Mexican border.

Dreamville To Release Film On 'Revenge Of The Dreamers 3' Sessions

The Dreamville recording sessions at the start of the year left everyone curious.

For one, J. Cole's label is known for working solely amongst its artists, but word quickly spread that the roster was opening its doors to collaborate with artists and producers. Buddy, Smino, and T-Minus were just a few of the individuals present at the "camp," and now five months since the sessions, fans will get to see what went down.

Dreamville will release its Revenge: A Dreamville Film that will give a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how artists and producers tied to different labels and different sounds, came together with Cole's imprint to create the upcoming Revenge of the Dreamers III album.

The highly-anticipated project is set for release this year, and two of its singles have already arrived. In fact, the recently released "Down Bad" featuring Cole, J.I.D., Bas, EARTHGANG and Young Nudy, serves as background music for the film's trailer.

"I had this idea," 34-year-old Cole said in the trailer. "Let's go somewhere, lock-in and invite a bunch of outside producers and artists to come f**k with us and just make this album."

T.I. and Dreamville's Ari Lennox are just a couple of the artists that appear in the trailer aside from Cole. The film is set for release Tuesday (July 2), and will hopefully be able to hold fans over until the release of the long-awaited follow up to Revenge of the Dreamers II.
