Remember when Suge Knight got shot at the Kanye West party a few years ago? And then Suge sued? YEP. Well, according to a snitch, Jimmy Henchmen ordered that ish.
Peep what early-TMZ site thesmokinggun said:
A cooperating witness has told federal investigators that he shot rap mogul Suge Knight at a 2005 party hosted by Kanye West at a swanky Miami Beach hotel, The Smoking Gun has learned.
The shooting of Knight, founder of L.A.’s Death Row Records, was allegedly ordered by James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, the New York music manager who was sentenced last month to life in prison for heading a cocaine trafficking ring.
A longtime Rosemond associate (and admitted cociane trafficker) has copped to shooting Knight, claiming that he targeted the “rival rap producer…at Rosemond’s behest,” according to investigators. The witness has recently told federal investigators that Rosemond–who attended the West party–provided him with the gun he used to shoot Knight.
Immediately following the shooting, the witness reports, he and Rosemond fled the Shore Club together, adding that Rosemond (seen at left) paid him $10,000 for the shooting (the motive for which is not further detailed by federal officials).
The Rosemond associate is referred to as “CW-3” (confidential witness-3) in the document.
“CW-3” was a member of Rosemond’s narcotics operation for more than a decade, and participated in a series of violent acts directed at associates of the rapper 50 Cent’s G-Unit crew. The rap world beef was prompted by business disputes between G-Unit and Rosemond’s Czar Entertainment.
