Lawyer: My client did not hire to shoot Tupac

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK – The lawyer for a hip-hop mogul accused in an online post of orchestrating a plot to rob rapper Tupac Shakur in the mid-1990s says the claims are outrageous and false.

Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman said Thursday his client James Rosemond did not hire anyone to rob and shoot Shakur.

The accusations about the 1994 robbery and shooting were posted online at allhiphop.com and are attributed to Dexter Isaac, who says he was hired by Rosemond. Isaac is serving a life sentence in an unrelated murder-for-hire-case. Rosemond is wanted by federal authorities on drug charges.

Shakur was killed in 1996 in an unsolved slaying.
