(GEMS RADIO) – G-Unit’s Tony Yayo has revealed that the longstanding beef between The Game and 50 Cent can be traced back to James “Jimmy Henchmen” Rosemund, a record executive with Czar Entertainment which managed The Game and other artists. He was speaking recently in an interview with VladTV.
50 Cent and The Game
Yayo has suggested that 50 Cent’s relationship with The Game started off on the wrong foot. It came about during Henchmen’s feud with Chris Lightly, the Violator Management music executive who committed suicide in 2012.
On the other hand, Jimmy Henchmen is currently in jail, serving life sentences on drug charges and murder-for-hire against G-Unit’s Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
Henchmen Never Liked Chris Lightly
“I tell you the poison in that was Jimmy Henchmen,” said Yayo. “Jimmy Henchmen never liked Chris Lighty. He never liked Chris Lighty and there was always jealousy, and rest in peace to Chris Lightly. You know that’s my icon. So Chris Lighty always had hate from people because you know he had P. Diddy, he had 50, he had Foxy, he had L.L. Cool J.”
“So I felt like the Henchmen beef, I didn’t know the guy I felt like it was inherited from Chris”
G-Unit Crew Slapped Henchmen’s 14-Year-Old Son
Tony Yayo and his G-Unit’s affiliates didn’t care much for Jimmy Henchmen. They were charged in 2007 for slapping the executive’s 14-year-old son as the boy was headed to his father’s office.
Shortly after serving nine months in prison for the assault, Lowell Fletcher was shot and killed in the Bronx. Henchmen was implicated for the murder, although he maintained his innocence in a 2017 interview with Complex magazine.
“I never told anyone to kill the guy,” Henchmen told Complex. “When a contact told me he had a way to get to Lowell Fletcher, I asked if he could bring him to me. What these guys went ahead and did was ended up killing Lowell Fletcher, which was not what I asked them to do.”
