LOS ANGELES — According to the DEA, James “Jimmy Henchmen” Rosemond used the Los Angeles office of Interscope Records to import cocaine to Los Angeles.
Rosemond managed “The Game” who is an artist on Interscope, and “The Game’s” road manager is also implicated in the incident.
The Smoking Gun reports:
Members of a narcotics ring that sent large amounts of cocaine and cash back and forth across the U.S. in music “road cases” arranged pickups and deliveries at the offices of Interscope Records, a music industry power whose roster includes artists like U2, Eminem, and Lady Gaga, according to federal investigators.
Since Rosemond headed a music and talent management firm, investigators allege, he was able to “disguise these shipments as legitimate freight that was ostensibly needed by the performance artists he managed,” according to a U.S. District Court filing. The coke- and cash-filled cases were shipped under accounts belonging to Rosemond’s Czar Entertainment and the “road manager for one of the performing-artists Rosemond managed,” prosecutors added.
