Shmurda’s label representative Sha Money of Epic Records issued a statement, Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill chastised the public for making fun of the Brooklyn native, and now James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond is offering his thoughts on the matter. The incarcerated former artist manager reached out exclusively to AllHipHop.com to address the 20-year-old entertainer’s latest run-in with the law.

“With everything happening with Bobby Shmurda there’s a need for a rap expert on deck, because the culture is under attack,” Rosemond tells AllHipHop.com. “If they can use 50’s lyrics against me as an executive to prove murder then we all in trouble.”

Earlier this month, Rosemond was convicted of hiring a gunman in the murder plot that left G-Unit associate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher dead in 2009. The killing was allegedly connected to the street war between 50 Cent’s G-Unit and Rosemond’s crew.

According to reports, Shmurda previously stated he felt New York City police were targeting him. Earlier this year, he was arrested for another gun possession charge, and later arrested again for smoking weed in public. In October, Shmurda even taunted the NYPD in an Instagram post. He wrote, “So da bum ass cops locked me up yesterday Fa some bulls**t made me miss.”
