Many people believed that Jimmy Henchman played a part in having 2pac shot in 1994, but it was never confirmed until now as Henchmen has finally confessed to planning the hit on Pac at Quad Studios.
This month has been a whirlwind for James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond. First he was convicted for running a huge drug trafficking operation, and then was indicted on murder charges for setting up a hit on one of 50 Cent’s associates.
Now court transcripts have come to light that note the former music mogul came forward and confessed to ordering a hit on 2pac in 1994 outside of NYC’s Quad studios.
As reported by The Urban Daily, Jimmy Henchman confessed to authorities that he was the architect behind the 1994 shooting and robbery that landed 2pac in the hospital with five gunshot wounds, it also kicked off the East Coast, West Coast war, which led to the untimely deaths of rap superstars Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
According to federal prosecutors during Henchman’s drug trafficking trial, the former mogul’s confession came last fall during the “Queen For A Day” government program that allows suspected assailants under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won’t be used to prosecute them, as he was trying to work out a deal that would lead to a reduced sentence in his drug trafficking case.
Before he was murdered, 2pac recorded a song on his Makaveli album called “Against All Odds,” in which he implicates Jimmy Henchman as the person who he believed set him up at Quad Studios.
“N*gga, picture what he said, and did I mention
Promised a payback, Jimmy Henchman, in due time
I know you b*tch n*ggas is listenin, The World Is Mine
Set me up, wet me up, n*ggas stuck me up
Heard the guns bust but you tricks never shut me up“

Pieces of the testimony taken from official transcripts of the Henchman drug trafficking trial show the prosecutors referring to him admitting to the 1994 attacks in a previous “proffer.”
It shows that Henchman denied the shooting when a 2008 LA Times article placing blame on him was published, but came back and admitted the shooting during the Queen For A Day session.
