The manhunt for hip-hop music executive James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond ended
Tuesday afternoon (June 21), the DEA confirmed to MTV News. Henchman, who ran
the Czar Entertainment management company overseeing the careers of artists like
the Game, was arrested in New York City and charged with heading a cocaine
trafficking ring.

Rosemond
has been on the lam
since warrants were issued for his arrest on May 17. On
Tuesday afternoon, the onetime music manager noticed federal agents as he walked
out of the W Hotel in Union Square, according to the New York Post. Henchman tried to evade US Marshals and
DEA agents by taking off on foot, but was apprehended and arrested on 21st
Street and Park Avenue South.

Rosemond was then arraigned in Brooklyn on conspiracy to distribute in excess
of five kilograms of cocaine; he is being held without bail, a DEA
representative told MTV News.

According to Rosemond’s lawyer, Jeffery Lichtman, Henchman and his defense
team are ready. “These charges obviously aren’t surprising, we’ve been
anticipating them for years now,” Lichtman told MTV News on Tuesday. “But
they’re built on the backs of people that have lied and cheated, have been
threatened, have been bribed by the government,” he added. “Anything to get
Jimmy Rosemond, but all of this is going to be exposed. We’ve been waiting a
long time for our day in court — we finally have it.”

Through the DEA, MTV News has obtained a copy of the complaint and affidavit
stemming from Rosemond’s arrest warrant. In it, there are details of Henchman’s
alleged drug ring, which is said to have shipped cocaine under accounts
belonging to Czar Entertainment from California to New York in “road cases”
typically used to transport musical equipment. Vacuum-sealed bags and mustard
were also used to conceal the smell from drug-sniffing dogs.

Two “high-ranking members” of Rosemond’s alleged organization (referred to in
the complaint as “CW-1” and “CW-2”) helped the DEA in their investigation. The
document does confirm that both men agreed to cooperate with the government
after their respective arrests in the “hope of receiving a reduced sentence.”

It is also noted in the complaint that while on the run, Henchman avoided the
use of cell phones and suggested to one of the members of his organization that
he should go into hiding. “N—-r stay low, move like you on the run right now
’cause that is what I’m doing n—-r, trying to get some ID, some new paperwork,
all that sh– right now,” Rosemond said during a telephone conversation recorded
by agents.

Dexter Isaac, who is believed to be cooperating with the government in its
case against Henchman, told AllHipHop.com that he was paid $2,500 by Rosemond to rob Tupac
Shakur at Quad Studios in a November 1994 incident that resulted in the
near-fatal shooting of the rapper, two years before his death in 1996. Lichtman
told the New York Daily News that Isaac’s claim was a “flat-out
lie.”

“When you got witnesses like that against you, it can make anybody paranoid
and believe that they won’t be getting a fair trial,” Lichtman said about his
client. “When the case starts, we’ll be ready to go.”
