An inmate serving a life sentence says he shot rapper Tupac Shakur in New York in 1994. Dexter Isaac, who is behind bars for murder and robbery, said he was paid 25-hundred-dollars by hip-hop manager Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond to commit the crime. Isaac says he has come forward to prove that Rosemond was involved, and clear his own conscious. He says he also wanted to provide the families of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. with “some closure.” Rosemond is currently wanted by federal authorities for his alleged involvement in cocaine distribution. In a statement to AllHipHop last month, Rosemond said he would never get a fair trial if the government relied on information from people like Isaac.
Tupac Shakur was shot in November of 1994 while at a recording studio in New York. The rapper blamed the crime on fellow hip-hop stars Sean “Diddy” Combs and the Notorious B.I.G. READ MORE
Joss Stone says she’s “absolutely fine” after two men were arrested for allegedly plotting to attack and rob her. The British soul singer thanked everyone for their concern, adding that she is “getting on with life as normal” while the authorities continue their investigation. The two men in question were taken into custody earlier this week near Stone’s home in southwest England after local residents spotted a “suspicious” car. The men were charged with conspiracy to rob and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm. According to British media, they were allegedly part of a plot to target Stone and her estimated personal fortune of about 15-million dollars.
Meanwhile, Stone is preparing for the start of her tour next month. She also attended the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton back in April.
In April 2010, Columbus resident Dominic Hold-Reid reportedly became enraged after his then-girlfriend Yolanda Burgess got pregnant and refused to have an abortion. The couple already had a 5-year-old son, and after driving together to drop him off at school, Holt-Reid pulled a gun on the woman and forced her to drive to the clinic. Clinic staff called police after Burgess passed them a note saying she had been threatened and didnâ€™t want to go through with the procedure. Holt-Reid was subsequently arrested in the clinic parking lot in possession of a .45 handgun. In sentencing, the Judge rejected Holt-Reidâ€™s defense attorneyâ€™s argument that his client was guilty of much less serious domestic violence charges that had nothing to do with the fetus his girlfriend was carrying.
