On Friday (Nov. 9) a judge sentenced Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond to two life sentences for his role in the murder of former 50 Cent affiliate, Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.

In response to his sentencing, Henchman penned an open letter to AllHipHop. “I continue to maintain my innocence,” he wrote. “There is a sickness in this system. My trial was covered up and drown out with unrelated shootings, hip hop gang fairy tales and non-existing ‘rap wars’ that never existed.”
The bad blood between Jimmy Henchman and G-Unit dates back to 2007 when Henchmen’s son was assaulted by Lowell Fletcher and Tony Yayo. Fletcher and Yayo were both convicted for the incident, however that didn’t stop Jimmy from allegedly getting revenge and plotting Fletcher’s murder in 2009.
Henchmen was taken to trial in March 2015 and handed a life sentence plus 20 years. A year later, the conviction was overturned and Jimmy was granted a new trail.
However, Jimmy was once again found guilty last November. The former music executive is already serving a life sentence for his role in a well-documented drug-trafficking operation.
As expected, 50 Cent reacted to the news with a comedic Instagram post (which has since been deleted) of Henchman in jail. The caption read:
