Suspect admits to involvement in Tupac shooting: report
The drug lord many believe was behind a 1994 robbery and near-fatal shooting of late rapper Tupac Shakur has reportedly admitted his involvement in the crime.
Citing court transcripts, The Village Voice reports that James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond secretly admitted to his involvement in the attack last fall while attempting to cut a deal with federal prosecutors for a reduced sentence in a separate drug trafficking case.
Shakur was robbed and shot in a now-notorious incident at New York's Quad Recording Studios that fueled the east coast-west coast rap wars of the 1990s. Tupac later accused Rosemand of the crime in his song "Against All Odds."
However, the New York statute of limitations expired 10 years ago so Redmond cannot be tried for the case. He was convicted on the drug trafficking charges in June and faces life in prison; he was also indicted on a murder-for-hire charge last week.
