Dexter Isaac, a longtime associate of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, released a statement to AllHipHop.com confessing to shooting famed rapper Tupac Shakur. “I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Isaac said from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.”
Rosemond is a hip hop mogul and CEO of Czar Entertainment who manages The Game and Sean Kingston, among many others. In May, he turned himself in on drug charges, and named Isaac in a lengthy statement defending himself and professing his innocence.
The shooting took place two years before Tupac was murdered on September 7th, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada, shot to death by two unnamed assailants.
An excerpt from Rosemond’s statement, which can be read in full here:
“In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob 2Pac Shakur at the Quad Studio. He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Synthia Ried. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery.”
Now I wonder if somebody will finally come forward and confess to the murder?
