Tupac Shakur is back inthe “searchlight,” as the plot has thickened around hip-hop’s most notoriousmurder victim.
Dexter Isaac, currentlyserving a life sentence for an unrelated crime, released a statementclaiming that in 1994, James Rosemond, aka Jimmy Henchman, hired him to robTupac outside Quad Studios in New York for a $2,500 fee andthe jewelry collected, minus a diamond ring Jimmy wanted for hisgirlfriend. Tupac was shot during the incident but survived.
The attack fueled the EastCoast versus West Coast rap war that led to the murders of Tupac in 1996 andChristopher “The Notorious BIG” Wallace in 1997.
Dexter refrained from naming the shooter inthe 1994 robbery. The police are investigating his claims.
