G-Unit and incarcerated music mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond had a lot of tension against each other before a fatal shooting between the two in 2009. Now reports claim that Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy tried everything he could to end the beef between the two but it sadly didn’t help at all.
A criminal witness at a murder trial this week in New York revealed how much Diddy wanted to help end the beef between both parties.
The beef that allegedly led to the execution of a 50 Cent rap crew associate in 2009 involved a sitdown with P. Diddy, a drive-by shooting and an order to injure hip hop industry titan Chris Lighty, a witness said Wednesday in the murder-for-hire trial of music mogul and drug lord James (Jimmy Henchman) Rosemond. Khalil Abdullah, 40, said the years-long feud between Rosemond, of Czar Entertainment, and G-Unit, a clique that includes rapper 50 Cent and was managed by Lighty, hit a rough patch in 2006 after an argument before an awards show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

Although Diddy tried his best to end the beef, things didn’t end well between the Rosemond and Lighty.
P. Diddy, the rapper and producer once known as Puff Daddy, called a peace conference between Rosemond and Lighty, Abdullah said. But it didn’t go well. “Chris ended up mushing [Rosemond] in the face,” he said. “Puff jumped in between them and broke it up.” Rosemond told Abdullah to have Lighty shot in the leg, but the witness didn’t follow through on the order, he said in Manhattan Federal Court. In 2009, Rosemond hired Brian “Slim” McLeod and another goon to lure G-Unit hanger-on Lowell Fletcher to the Bronx and kill him, Abdullah said, citing a conversation he had with Rosemond a day or two later.
