Dexter Isaac Involved In Shooting Pac (Tupac Shakur)

“I want to apologize to his family…

http://www.reocities.com/southbeach/1728/2pac10.jpg

(AllHipHop News) A man has admitted to being involved in the attack on rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994, inside Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November of 1994, after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond.

Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.

Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15th) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday.

He confessed to his involvement in the November 30th, 1994 robbery of Tupac Shakur to AllHipHop.com, after Jimmy Henchman identified him in a statement, relating to Henchman’s indictment for dealing numerous kilos of cocaine.

“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.”

http://rapradar.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/jimmy-henchman.jpg?w=330&h=396Henchman, who is currently on the run from Federal officials, claimed that Dexter Isaac, along with other incarcerated inmates were cooperating with the government in an investigation of his alleged drug dealing activities.

“If the government is relying on informants like Winston “Winnie” Harris, a convicted drug dealer and Jamaican deportee, who came to me and motioned via hand signal that he was forced to wear a wire and begged me to skip town or Dexter Isaac who is serving life in prison plus 30 years, then I’m sure I will not be offered a fair trial,” Henchman said in a statement released to AllHipHop.com in May of 2011.

Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com that he decided to confess to the robbery to prove Jimmy Henchman’s involvement, in addition to clearing his conscience for his role in the robbery.

Isaac said he was comfortable going on record relating to the robbery and shooting which resulted in Pac being reportedly shot, five times.

Since the statute of limitations had expired, legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault at this time.

Isaac was a lifelong friend of Jimmy Henchmen, who helped the former mogul set up his first company, Henchman Entertainment, in 1989.

Isaac claims he never cooperated with the government in any investigation, and Jimmy Henchman’s allegations infuriated him.

Isaac, who is also from Brooklyn, has long been suspected of being involved in the Quad shooting of Tupac Shakur, along with an associate name Spencer “Scooter” Bowens, who is also serving a life sentence and another man named George Roland Campbell.

According to the confession below, Dexter Isaac not only knows what happened to Tupac Shakur’s jewelry, but he claims he is also in possession of the Hip-Hop star’s chain that was taken during the altercation on that infamous night on November 7, 1994.

The shooting on November 30th, was the start of a deadly feud that resulted in the murders of both Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

Their murders have never been solved.

Isaac was indicted by the government in 1998 and was subsequently sentenced to life in prison for murder, robbery, fraud and witness intimidation charges.

[Editor’s Note: His entire admission involving his role in the Tupac Shakur shooting in 1994 is listed below, along with his contact information for verification purposes.]

Fresh Artist: Elise 5000 Brings In The Future of R&B

Elise 5000 is definitely someone to…

http://www.arjanwrites.com/.a/6a00d8341cabbe53ef01156fa43466970c-400wi

With millions of downloads under her belt and various international collaborations, Elise 5000′s got the Internet in a frenzy! Featured on hundreds of top music blogs and sites, Elise 5000 has invariably crossed the genre line being considered one of the most versatile artists out with Pop, Hip Hop, R&B, Progressive House, and Alternative Hip Hop music in her repertoire just to name a few.

We very rarely post anything on R & B if at all but this caught our eyes and ears.  Instead of independent, man bashing music this was something that brought that supportive feeling that seems to be missing in a lot of music.  We understand you can do it on your own and that you may hate the last person you were dealing with enough to have a whole Louis Vuitton collection of baggage, we do get it, but sometimes we (men) want to know that you still dig us and support us.  Let us know that you’re happy to be with us for a change.  That’s where “In Love With You” came in.
