Hip-Hop executive James Rosemond is planning to file a $120 million dollar lawsuit against The New York Daily News and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Chuck Phillips, over an article published in September in the popular newspaper.
In an article published on the 14th anniversary of the death of Tupac Shakur, Phillips accused Rosemond aka “Jimmy Henchmen” of cooperating with the government for years.
Phillips, a former writer for the Los Angeles Times, is a well-respected investigative journalist who has been reporting on the unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. for over a decade.
Recently, a letter Chuck Phillips allegedly sent to an inmate attempting to get him to reveal information on Rosemond, while making disparaging comments about the executive, was circulated on the Internet.
“On more than one occasion both Daily News & Chuck Phillips have contacted the same inmate trying to coerce him into saying Jimmy was an informant,” Rosemond’s lawyer Feinstein continued. “We have affidavits from inmates to prove the efforts of their coercion and how determined they were in proving their point. Even after the article’s release Chuck Phillips continued in his quest to change the mind of individuals who refused to lie against Jimmy Rosemond at grand jury proceedings.
Henchman said he is planning to go all out against the NY Daily and Chuck Phillips for slandering his name.
