Another case of life imitating art has surfaced in the arrest and conviction of famed music manager, Jimmy Henchman, real name James Rosemond, who was indicted on massive cocaine charges. Henchman has represented music stars such as Brandy, Akon, Game, Gucci Mane and Shyne, to name a few.

It is alleged Henchman used his management company and recording studio, to traffic large quantities of narcotics in and around America, then distributed the cash proceeds, via an elaborate scheme involving Fedex and rented mail boxes. Money was shipped through the mail, vacuum sealed and coated in mustard, to throw off dogs that sniff mail packages. Henchman's arrest is said to be part of a larger drug  probe into rap music.  

The entertainment industry is no stranger to entertainers being involved with organized crime. The late Notorious B.I.G. was a drug dealer, who got involved with the Genovese mafia, as confirmed by FBI reports. Former Sony CEO, Tommy Mottola, who was married to singer Mariah Carey, after she broke up his 20-year marriage, bragged of his mafia ties in Vanity Fair. 

Rapper 50 Cent was also a drug dealer. Rapper, Jay-Z, another drug dealer, continues to boasts about his debauched life in profane songs. Lastly, pop singer Madonna, has financial ties to the mafia, even dated a member of it as well. In closing, many people in the entertainment industry are always looking to make a fast buck, which often entails breaking the law. What a horrible example to set.

Cocaine Probe Targets Rap Music Figures

MAY 17--The Drug Enforcement Administration probe that has ensnared a well-known rap music manager is focusing on the shipment of kilos of cocaine from Los Angeles to New York by a narcotics ring that stashed the drug in “road cases” delivered to recording studios, The Smoking Gun has learned.
