James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has officially been charged with ordering the murder of an associate of 50 Cent.
Jimmy Henchman, who is already in a Brooklyn federal prison for running a $10 million a year cocaine operation, now faces the death penalty for the murder of Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
Lodi Mack was gunned down in September of 2009 in the Bronx, just two weeks after he was released from prison, after serving almost two years for smacking Jimmy Henchman’s young son, as well as an unrelated narcotics charge.
The incident happened in March of 2007, during an altercation between 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, and Lodi Mack.
Henchman’s young son was walking to the Czar Entertainment offices, which were on the same street as Violator Management, which manages 50 Cent’s career.
50 and crew allegedly spotted the young man walking down the street wearing a Czar Entertainment sweatshirt, at the height of the feud between G-Unit and rapper Game, who was managed by Czar Entertainment at the time.
The young man was surrounded by Tony Yayo and his associates, harassed and eventually smacked in the face.
The assault was condemned by activists like Charles Barron and Al Sharpton.
In June of 2011, two men were officially charged with the murder of Lodi Mack.
Rodney Johnson and Brian McCleod, two men from Florida, are currently in jail, accused of being the triggermen in the hit.
The men claim they did the hit in exchange for a shipment of cocaine.
Jimmy Henchman is being represented by Gerald Shargel, who has refused multiple requests to comment on the case.
Prosecutors have not indicated if they will seek the death penalty against Jimmy Henchman.
