(AllHipHop News) The history between Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has been a very violent one. The G-Unit leader and the convicted drug trafficker have been warring for years. 50 recently spoke with DJ Drama about some of his issues with Henchman.

“These guys not rappers. These gangsters. The guys I ended up having beef with. Not Ja, Preme. Not Game, Jimmy,” said 50. “I kind of identify why he was so angry with [what happened to] his kid. His boy got slapped.”
G-Unit member Tony Yayo was accused of hitting Henchman’s then 14-year-old son James Rosemond Jr. back in 2007. The assault led to further incidents of violence between the two camps. 50 even addressed the situation on his song “Hold On.”
According to the Queens rapper, Yayo was not the one who slapped Rosemond Jr. He tells Drama that it was actually Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher. Henchman was later convicted of having Mack murdered.
“I had bought Yayo a Bentley, and the car got shot up,” added 50. “I said, ‘Okay, you gotta put your dancing shoes on, because they’re dead serious.’ You don’t push pause when everybody’s on go.”
