Did Interscope Manager James Rosemond Funnel Cocaine And Cash?

According to several sources and in particular the Smoking Gun, which got the info from federal paperwork now surfacing, the Los Angeles offices of Interscope Records were used for pickups and deliveries of large amount of cocaine and cash!

This is the description provided by the Smoking Gun:
‘Department of Justice prosecutors this week provided defense lawyers with shipping records detailing “pickups and deliveries” made at Interscope’s Los Angeles office by a cargo firm that was used to transport the music cases, which were alternately stuffed with kilos of cocaine and upwards of $1 million in cash.’

Rap music manager James Rosemond (aka ‘Jimmy Henchmen’), who is currently held without bail in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, was indicted on 18 felony charges, which could result in a sentence of life in prison. He also is the guy who allegedly had a role in the 1994 attack on rapper Tupac Shakur (which led to the 1996 followup), since Dexter Isaac, a Brooklyn prisoner confessed a few months ago that Rosemond paid him $2,500 to murder Shakur, a declaration denied by Rosemond’s attorney of course.

Among the documents disclosed by investigators, 65 pages of records from Rock-It Cargo, a large freight forwarder whose client list includes many musical acts, and which was referencing pickups and deliveries at Interscope records and a Manhattan recording studio.

It is still unclear how the narcotic ring had access to the big label’s offices, but the smoking Gun indicates that a road manager for rapper The Game, Rosemond’s biggest client ,has been implicated in the trafficking ring, and former Rosemond associates have admitted their roles in the operation. According to the investigators, kilos of cocaine were shipped via Rock-it from LA to NYC where Rosemond and his associates were distributing the drug. Then they were collecting the money from cocaine sales, packing the cash into road cases and transported them back to LA music studios!

How come a division of UMG, the world’s largest music company got implicated into such a trafficking? Investigators think that Rosemond was able to ‘disguise these shipments as legitimate freight that was ostensibly needed by the performance artists he managed’.
This has been going on for two years as Feds called Rosemond the "principal leader" of the organization since he has had his hand in the distribution of hundreds of kilos since 2008.
So far, Interscope big heads have not commented on the accusations.
