2011 has been a year Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond would likely wish never happened if he had a genie in a bottle. Thinking back to happier times, Rosemond was in Hurricane Game’s when he scored 5X platinum with The Documentary in 2005. While out in Los Angeles, Hot97’s Angie Martinez recently asked the Red Nation leader about his thoughts on his former manager’s current allegations. Unsurprisingly, he’s confident the Czar will flex in his Teflon® armor in the situation.
The key word in all of this is “allegations.” While Rosemond’s name has been coming up far too many times for anyone to assume his fingernails are squeaky clean, the likelihood of a jury believing the testimony of someone doing life is pretty slim. And good luck tying up the loose ends to find a very rich music mogul being guilty of running a cocaine cartel.
You have a better chance of setting up a chess game with Haitian Jack in Central Park.
And while we’re on the subject of old flames, Interscope and gangsta sh*t, Simple Simon recently ran into his old boss, Jimmy Iovine, during some BET Awards melee in Los Angeles. While it looked like a fight he finally could win, the conference turned out to be a strictly peaceful ordeal.
