Earlier this week, a man named Dexter Isaac came forward and said that he was paid by music exec Jimmy 'Henchman' Rosemond (who manages the Game, coincidentally) to shoot Tupac in 1994 at Quad Studios. Isaac is currently in jail, so his admission comes with the usual "is he just saying that to get sprung early" innuendo. However, Rosemond's attorney recently came out to say that Isaac's claims are a "flat out lie" saying:
"Dexter Isaac is not claiming this 17 years later to clear his conscience. He's doing it because he's told anybody who will listen he doesn't want to die in prison. He has kids and wants to work off his sentence. He can't be trusted."
But this story gets crazier, as Rosemond can't be trusted either: He's currently on the run while facing serious drug charges, claiming that the government is railroading him by using jailhouse snitches to build a case against him. I think the thing that this story illustrates is that we'll never really know what happened in Big or Tupac's murder. There's too much baggage involved. [MTV]
