Dexter Isaac, a longtime associate of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, released a statement to AllHipHop.com confessing to being involved in the robbery and shooting of rap icon Tupac Shakur back in 1994.
“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Isaac said from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie's] mothers some closure.”
Rosemond is CEO of Czar Entertainment, who manages The Game and Sean Kingston, among others. In May, he turned himself in on drug charges, and named Isaac in a statement defending himself and professing his innocence.
The shooting incident took place two years before Tupac’s fatal shooting on September 7th, 1996 in Las Vegas by two unnamed assailants.
Isaac came forward Wednesday, June 15th, with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday.
An excerpt from Rosemond’s statement reads:
“In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob 2Pac Shakur at the Quad Studio. He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Synthia Ried. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery.”
According to the confession below, Dexter Isaac not only knows what happened to Tupac Shakur’s jewelry, but he claims he is also in possession of the 2pac’s chain that was taken during the altercation on that infamous night of November 7, 1994.
The shooting on November 30th, was the start of a deadly feud that resulted in the murders of both Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.
Their murders have never been solved.
Isaac was indicted by the government in 1998 and was subsequently sentenced to life in prison for murder, robbery, fraud, and witness intimidation charges.
