Jimmy Henchman and Wyclef

EXCLUSIVE: Jimmy Henchman Loaned Wyclef Drug Money; IRS Scrutinizes Relationship

(AllHipHop News) Wyclef Jean’s relationship with James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was introduced as evidence in Rosemond’s federal cocaine trial yesterday (May 22).

Rosemond is accused of organizing and leading a $10 million-a-year cocaine operation, that imported hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into New York, while sending millions to the west coast.

Rosemond was a well-known urban executive, who managed artists like Game, Gucci Mane, Sean Kingston, Mario Winans, Brandy, Mike Tyson, and others.

Over the years, Rosemond has enjoyed a cozy relationship with fellow Haitian, Wyclef Jean.

In March of 2011, both Wyclef Jean and Rosemond helped organize a concert for future Haitian President Michel “Sweet Micky” Martelly.

Rosemond also supported Wyclef’s run for President of Haiti in 2010.

But during the trial, prosecutors introduced an October 13, 2011 Proffer Agreement, where Rosemond met with authorities in hopes of ultimately reaching a Cooperation Agreement with prosecutors.

During the session on October 13, Rosemond admitted to a number of illegal activities.

He admitted that 80 to 90 percent of his income was funded by drug money, and that he laundered the cocaine money through a variety of means.

Rosemond said that he paid for his Brooklyn condominiums renovations with drug money, as a way of laundering the money, in addition to a number of other means.

Rosemond told authorities during the session that he bought a Bentley that was eventually sold to an individual named “Shakim” for “clean money,” without the purchaser’s knowledge.

He also admitted that he gave Wyclef Jean $60,000 in cash from drug proceeds as a loan, with out Wyclef’s knowledge.

The government also said they began investigating Rosemond and Wyclef’s business dealings, after Rosemond received over $800,000 in checks associated companies controlled by Wyclef Jean and his tour manager.

In a blockbuster admission, Rosemond claimed that he had regularly sold Wyclef’s driver “E” a number of kilograms of coke.

In an October 17, 2011, session with the government, Rosemond also admitted that the first two shipments of drugs and money were sent to Interscope Records, while subsequent shipments of the illegal contraband went to rehearsal spaces in Los Angeles.

The only reason Rosemond did not receive a Cooperation Agreement with the government, was because they caught him in several lives.

After meeting with prosecutors a total of nine times, the deal was taken off the table when prison authorities found Rosemond with a live cell phone in his jail cell.

An agent testified that Rosemond was exchanging texts with a Mexico area code.

Eventually, the government found out that Rosemond was talking to his brother Mario, who was also charged in the case and was a fugitive from justice at the time.

Testimony continues this week.

  • EL_BARK

    Damn jimmy………..

    look like you might be going to adx, florence

  • ANDRE SALAZAR

    What a piece of s*%$! He snitched on everybody including Clef who ain’t even involved. What a snake! Then he didn’t get his “snitching” deal because he’s a terrible liar! WOW! This guy’s a total mess! Character is everything! I’m not sure there’s anyone out there now that wouldn’t believe he had something to do with Tupac’s shooting, back in the day!

    • alvarez313

      LMAO @ character being everything when talking about a drug dealing possible murderer.. 

    •  Ummmm it’s noted that Wyclef Jean is possibly one of the biggest drug lords in the United States homie..Even John Forte’ took the fall for Clef..Do some research homie.

  • Brick Soulja

    He tried snitching again to save his freedom. It’s amazing how someone can take pictures and give all kinds of interviews, when all along they’re snitching. Tupac said it back in 1996 and now the legal proof is coming out. Pac was already 16 years ahead of the game.

    • Weedras

      lol! the all see omnipotent 2pac dwl!!

      • Brick Soulja

        Nope, Tupac just had good sense to point out a snake. You probably a snake, who works for Jimmy.

      • marlon

        brandi for a so call goddess you truly lack maturity. the goddess doesnt fit you. you’re more of a four-legged, mangy, fur-coated, chihuahua 

  • Stick a fork in him, he’s done.

  • $18592567

    Here’s a lesson to all of you armchair legal eagles/jailhouse lawyers etc… The FEDERALIS put their cases together before they indict you.

    Jimmy Henchman is a SNITCH.
    He’s gonna catch a stiff sentence and he’ll probably do his time in Colorado.

    “Promised me payback Jimmy Henchman in due time…”

    •  I don’t see him going to Florence. He’s not that dangerous. If he does go to Florence its because he keeps doing shit that is a “security breach”

    • tahpics

      Federalis? Wait, so Mexican law enforcement’s involved too? 

  • daaaaamn homie

  • Wonder if this has something to do with Wyclef getting shot, by Haitian jack, in Haiti?…allegedly , of course.

  • When a snitch tells on himself…no one is off limits.

  • EL_BARK

    Lol

    @ all the pac stans feeling like they got some vindication from
    this.

    Sorry pac fans makaveli had nothing to do with this.
    Pac wasnt ahead of his time.

    Jimmy greed cause his demise, as well as being knee deep in the drug business.
    Its 2012 drug game is full of snitches, and this is just one result,
    When you in the dice game.

    I’m sure jimmy going to jail on drug charges, doesnt do shet for his moms,
    Or family members. ???? Just saying.

    Stop with with all the pac prophecies, what happen to
    The 7 year theroy???????? Lol

    Or is he going to rise from the grave, like the messiah, and preforms miracles,
    Sometime in the near future.

    Are you prepared for tupac return????
    Cult following zombies i tell ya….

    • Brick Soulja

      You sound like a typical Tupac hater, who doesn’t like the fact that Pac spoke the truth. Get over it and step aside with your obvious worship of Haitian BO Jimmy….lol

      • Sinbk Legend

  • Brick Soulja

    Yeah, Tupac exposed that snitch years ago and now the truth is coming full circle.

  • Montezuma1

    I’m cracking up watching the board go from “he’s gonna beat this” to “stick a fork in him.” lol And the Tupac wackos are even funnier. Pac was snitching on wax and in interviews. He named Tut as an assailant in Quad which he wasn’t and got Tut targeted. Tut was the first fed life case in NY because of Pac’s reckless talk. It’s hip hop. Home of queers, snitches and lames with a music budget and new lease on life. Not everybody, just the ones who make it big for some reason. Fukk Jimmy and Fukk Tupac. There I said it. I been said Jimmy was a rat. All of these dudes are suspect.

    • Montezuma1

      Clarification: Tut was first 3 time loser fed case in NY receiving a LIFE sentence.

      • Didn’t know that! I remember when Tut was in Otisville.

    • EL_BARK

      Okay

      Monte.

      Yo going to fired blanks @ me, but still aim. Lmao.

      Yeah i was wrong, at first i thought jimmy was or had a good chance of beating it.
      But got to my original post. I said “unless the feds pulls out, what they got tucked”

      Early on before ” the connect” snitch all the witness all were felons,
      All had a reasons and motive to lie. Keeping in mind me & you both know they conviction rate,
      And know how they play…… 80%

      People that take deals, or cooperate. Is about 90% agreed right ???

      I aint switch sides, but once the connect snitch on him,
      Alleddglly, i said it was a rap. Cause normally, jimmy would still had the connect to rat on.

      Instead the connect ratted on him, which
      YOU & I KNOW is SUSPCECT ……

      And i assuming this because you know about the feds.
      Which leads me to my last point.

      You said it was rumor that he snitched, but when chuck first drop his bomb,
      You stop short, i believe of calling him a full
      Blown RAT……….

      And even if he did RAT, i still remember you saying.
      Ratting dont make you soft, its just shows you lack principal.& character
      RIGHT?????

      We can both argree jimmy wasnt soft or can be very dangerous
      Right????

      I’m not flipping flopping, its just opinipns changes, as more info come out.
      At first i thought he could beat it. But NOW its looking like a rap, for him.

      Bye the way….i like how you shoot,
      Without even greeting a niggah,
      Lmao & smh…..

      Clears throat.!!!!!!!!
      Whats up
      Monte !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Still be a gentlemen about it, lmao.
      Although one of your strays hit me.!!!!!!!!!

      • Hahahahahaha!

        >>Rubs E Chest wound that Monte left me with.

        >>Vows E revenge!

    • Tut got life for doing dirt.

      I said “Stick a Fork In Him…cuz he’s done ” ….based on his own proffer session.

      He already confessed…..it’s a wrap.  Never knew they could use your proffer , then again, why not?

  • Montezuma1

    The Haitian president is named “Sweet Mickey” Last time I saw him was on Eastern Pkwy about 10yrs ago and he had on pink panties and white cowboy boots. He probably has the pink lace panties on to match that pink polo shirt in the picture. How you go from being hardcore to taking pics with weirdos? Wyclef is a broke fukking lame too. The lure of the spotlight causes people to lose sight. Association brings forth assimilation. Look at who Jimmy been keeping company with. Is anyone surprised how things turned out. When people try to tell you who they are pay attention. Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.

  • TruthSerum

    Wyclef sitting at home biting his nails off thinking “I wonder what else he done told them!!!”

    Clef always seemed kinda shady to me, lol

  • rep87

    This case has open alot of eyes to how broke some artist are 60k was peanuts to Jimmy clocking 10mil a yr, Wyclef wasnt handling his money well ,classic case Big Dope man getting caught going on trial he might should have pled guilty because once the jury find him guilty the judge is going to give him the high end of Fedral sentence guide lines

    • The plea bargain was high end , most likely.

      Most artist don’t make what we think they do , while the rest spend what they do make ….on looking like they make more than they do.

      • EL_BARK

        Tell that lil niggah robert that, his pop got him in his fraud bag to.

        Ole hug a man when his shirt off type of niggas. Lol

      • rep87

        You are so right my man  !

  • LOL-N at Jimmy bringing Monte back!

  • Terrance Goodman

    Pac predicted this ish and no one listened …………

  • tbirdandkoolaid

    The d game where rats rat on rats….

    at the cats saying when jimmy hits the yard he better watch out. you must be new.

    the federal system is filled to the brim with cheese eaters. he will feel right at home.

    also just because one eats cheese does not mean they’re soft. immoral yes, soft, most of the time not at all. some real heavy hittas that nibble the cheese.
