Legendary tough guy Jimmy Henchmen, who manages The Game and owns Czar Entertainment is facing 10 years in prison after being convicted of assault for the January 2005 beating of D.C. radio personality Xzulu "The Big Lipped Bandit".
The manager of a rap recording artist has been convicted of assaulting a Maryland disc jockey.
A jury has found 40-year-old James Rosemond guilty of the unprovoked beating of WKYS announcer DJ Zxulu.Rosemond, who lives in New York, is known as "Jimmy Henchman" and represents the artist known as "The Game." They were at the hip-hop station’s Lanham studios last January.Prince George’s County prosecutor Glenn Ivey said the attack happened after the DJ made a joke about Rosemond’s cell phone earpiece.During the two-day trial, witnesses testified that Rosemond beat Zxulu, whose real name is Richard Dunkerson, badly enough to send him to the hospital.Rosemond faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced April 3.
File this one under "What the hell were ya’ll thinking?" You manage one of the years most successful rappers, and you’re finally making a real name for yourself in the industry and putting your past behind you and you do something like this? Over a crack about your earpiece? I’d really like to know what dude said about the earpiece, because you have to figure that this could have been resolved with a simple bitch slap rather than a full beatdown. It’ll be nuts if Jimmy gets the whole ten years, but even if he doesn’t the Feds may have dibs on him when he gets out anyway.
