Hip-Hop mogul James Rosemond did not hire convicted felon Dexter Isaac to attack Tupac Shakur, his lawyer insisted. On Thursday, May 16, a day after Dexter confessed he had shot and robbed the late rapper in 1994, Jeffrey Lichtman spoke out against the allegation. He told E! News, "How anyone can take this animal's word as true without any corroboration at all is frankly beyond me."

Jeffrey went on to blast Dexter by saying that he "is a guy who is a convicted psychotic killer, who is currently serving a life sentence without parole." He added, "And what he failed to mention in his statement where he claims that he is not cooperating, is that he was brought back from a prison in Colorado to Brooklyn solely to cooperate with federal authorities."

"He has been cooperating for months in a desperate attempt to get out from under his life sentence," the attorney said further in defense of his client. "All of a sudden, 17 years later, in a desperate attempt to get out from under his sentence he is making up this story about Jimmy."

Dexter came clean about the 1994 incident during which he shot and robbed Tupac outside a studio in Manhattan to AllHipHop. He claimed to have been paid by James, the owner of Czar Entertainment, to do so. "He [Rosemond] gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself," he told the site.

Dexter continued to recall, "It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Synthia Ried. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery." On the reason why he confessed, he said, "I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [James]."

The other question is, were Jack Haitian,James Rosemond, and Dexter Isaac also in Las Vegas the night Tupac was shot on the night of September 7, 1996 and did they have any connections to Orlando Anderson?

Jimmy Rosemond is the guy who enticed Tupac to show up that night. I believe he paid PAC $7,000 to perform on a new mixtape that night. Tupac was showed up many hours late, and believe it or not; NYPD were right outside the building sitting in their cruiser the entire time. WOW Tupac got followed into the lobby by his mugger, shot 5 times and no response from the cops??? The same EXACT cops who arrested him at the Parker Meriden Hotel for that alleged sexual misconduct. Tupac was setup at the hotel by Rosemond through Jacques Agnant AKA Haitian Jack, and at the studio by Rosemond, also. Investigate those COPS on the TAKE.
