Full Text Of Interscope Statement Denying Involvement In CocaineTrafficking Operation

image from The offices of Universal's Interscope Records have been used by Jimmy Henchmen, manager of label artist The Game, as a drop off and pickup point for road cases filled with kilos of cocaine and more than $1 million in cash, according to documents filed by federal prosecutors. (Details here.) Today Interscope released a carefully worded denial of any involvement in the claim:

"The information being reported in the press regarding Interscope Records' involvement with the ongoing criminal prosecution of James Rosemond is both erroneous and completely unsupported.  Interscope Records has been informed by the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York that there is no evidence that any employee of UMG or Interscope Records had any involvement in the drug trafficking ring being prosecuted by that office, nor any knowledge of the contents of any of the packages that were purportedly shipped to its offices.  Further, neither UMG nor Interscope Record are a subject or target of the investigation.  UMG and Interscope will continue to cooperate with the United States Attorney's Office regarding this matter.

  1. so that’s how they made all that money, lol. so was this a money laundering operation. invest, flip, and pullout? this does not look good for them on a corporate side, but the streets really dont give a damn.

  2. Jimmy should’ve had a conversation with
    Irv Gotti & his Bro. before going down that road.
    But then again, just “charge it to the game.”

  3. Well so there you have it. THAT’S HOW THEY MAKE MONEY!! COCAINE NOT MUSIC. ITS ALL STARTING TO MAKES SENSE NOW. Its not like they talk about that on every song anyway. Still think you can become a millionaire from writing rhymes. GOOD LUCK!
