NY Post reported:

Fallen hip-hop mogul James Rosemond – long suspected of involvement in the 1994 Manhattan shooting of Tupac Shakur -was sentenced to life behind bars Friday for orchestrating a multi-million dollar drug distribution enterprise. A former music industry titan who once mingled with the likes of Jay-Z, Akon, and Sean Combs, Rosemond was found guilty last year of using his thriving record label as a front for the coastal cocaine ring. “This was astonishing in its breadth and duration and intensity,” Judge John Gleeson said of his venture. “You chose that life and this is the punishment you get.” Prosecutor Todd Kaminsky skewered Rosemond before Gleeson dropped the hammer, blasting him for funding his luxury lifestyle by flooding his own community with drugs.
