Tupac Shooter Offers Jailhouse Confession
According to a report on AllHipHop.com, a man known as Dexter Isaac has confessed to the 1994 assassination attempt on Tupac Shakur at Manhattan’s Quad Studios.
Reportedly, Isaac claims the shooting was initiated by “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, CEO of Czar Entertainment, who offered the hit man $2,500 for the attack. Czar Entertainment currently supports artists such as The Game and Sean Kingston.
Isaac is currently serving a life sentence in jail for other unrelated offenses, including murder.
“I want to apologize to [Tupac’s] family and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Rosemond],” said Isaac. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.”
It’s easy to question the delay in Isaac’s confession, a 17 year delay at that; however the prisoner offers a convincing, if not stifling excuse for the confession’s postponement due to the statue of limitations for assault charges, which has now passed allowing any crime confession to escape any potential conviction.
The Los Angeles Times previously reported in a 2008 story that Rosemond, along with other associates including Sean “Diddy” Combs, had arranged the hit in spite of Tupac’s rejected signing with Bad Boy Records. That story was summarily pulled due to FBI reports which were reportedly false.
The ’94 shooting was the unofficial beginning to the notorious East Coast-West Coast rap feud that stretched well into 1996 with the deaths of Shakur of The Notorious B.I.G., Christopher Wallace.
Material such as this has since surfaced, exposing Shakur’s lingering suspicions that Combs and Biggie, along with other Bad Boy associates, arranged the murder attempt.
