According to, Lawsuit Affidavit Claims Vindicate Jimmy Henchman in Tupac Shooting

Accusations of Conspiracy Cast Suspicion on Journalists Chuck Philips and Allison Gendar

BROOKLYN, NY--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - (HHC) has exclusively uncovered and published evidence to refute claims made in a recent article featured in the New York Daily News alleging the hip-hop manager and NO SNITCH advocate James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond is in fact a government informant.

An affidavit recently uncovered by HHC outlines in detail an alleged conspiracy between several incarcerated persons, including one convicted con-man James Sabatini, along with Daily News writer Allison Gendar, and former L.A. Times journalist Chuck Philips. The affidavit is to be used in the $100 million defamation lawsuit recently brought against the Pulitzer Prize-winning Chuck Philips. 

To add fire to the flames, following Allison Gendar's article published in the NY Daily News September 13, 2010, several high profile music industry veterans, who were at the court proceedings referenced in the article, spoke out publicly.

Statements provided by attorney Jeffrey Lichtman include the following from musician Wyclef Jean, "I was inside the courtroom at Jimmy Rosemond's sentencing and nothing that the NY Daily News alleges took place," adding "it deeply saddens me that whenever we do the right thing, people want to put us on the wrong path."

According to the legendary producer Eric B, "There was unequivocally never any dialogue in the court sentencing that even remotely resembles what was written in the Daily News article."

When contacted for comment Rosemond's attorney Jeffrey Lichtman had this to say, "The article published in the New York Daily News about Jimmy Rosemond is nothing short of a targeted assassination attempt by the government, with an assist from their favorite daily newspaper. Due to the government's inability to convict Jimmy in a court of law, they have stooped to trying to get him lynched in the street."

This on-going argument has been raging since the Los Angeles Times retracted a story days after being published by Chuck Philips in March 2007. The article claimed James Rosemond and Sean "Diddy" Combs were responsible for the shooting of Tupac Shakur outside of the Quad Studios NYC, in November 1994. Subsequently an apology was issued to both Rosemond and Diddy by The Times and Chuck Philips, after it was determined all the evidence Philips based his article on had been faked by James Sabatini. Several months later Mr. Philips was let go from his job.
