Last week, reports all over the web claimed that Czar Entertainment President James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond is responsible for involvement in a large scale drug trade operation. Today Rosemond offers XXLMag.com an exclusive statement and reveals his intent to turn himself in.
Rosemond defended his image and sent apologies to people associted to him.
“”With the Name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful I have decided to break my silence to address slanderous media once and for all. Firstly, I want to apologize to every music artist and executive I’ve worked with. In addition, I apologize to my family and friends who have had to endure this horrible situation,” he said in a statement to XXL Mag. “The events over the past week, to say the least, have caught me off guard. Although I have been aware of an investigation-taking place over the last four years, I was never informed that an arrest warrant had been issued in my name. I first learned about that warrant through the media when the news was released last week.”
He also said the situation is all a part of a large conspiracy to bring him down.
“I would like to expose the two prosecutors spearheading this slanderous and trumped up case against me. The first, prosecutorTodd Kaminsky, is a 33-year-old White hip-hop head that if he weren’t a lawyer he would probably be a member of the Beastie Boys. Second, Carolyn Porkony, who failed in convicting the Murder Inc. Irv Gotti brothers on trumped up charges of money laundering. Both have a personal stake in pursuing me and will stop at nothing to bring down an innocent man…Where’s the real proof that I have committed these crimes? I just want my fair trial and to not be railroaded as they so eagerly want to do. A fair trial is afforded by the constitution and witnesses should be forthright without pressure or duress. That’s all I want and I’ll turn myself in today. Again, I apologize to my peers, artists and family for being subjected to all of this.”
Czar Entertainment roster includes music artists The Game & Sean Kingston and well as HBO’s The Wire Micheal K. Williams
