Tupac's Shooter Confesses

Tupac Shakur was shot five times on November 30, 1994 after a night of recording inside Manhattan's Quad Studios and emerged the very next day in a wheelchair to face sentencing on sexual assault charges. He did eventually die, tragically as the result of a drive-by shooting, less than two years after surviving this initial attack.

On the eve of what would have been Tupac's 40th birthday, a man by the name of Dexter Isaac reached out to and admitted to being the one responsible for the robbery and shooting of Tupac in November 1994.

Isaac claims to have been paid $2,500 by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, who Los Angeles Times reported Chuck Phillips claimed was behind the shooting in a 2008 article. Isaac is currently serving a life sentence plus 30 years behind bars after being convicted for murder, robbery, fraud, and witness intimidation charges for an unrelated 1998 incident.

He says he is coming forward now, after the statute of limitation has passed, in order to "give [Tupac and B.I.G.'s] mothers some closure," and to prove Rosemond's involvement. Isaac claims to have a chain he stole that night which belonged to Tupac to offer as proof to back up his admission. Rosemond, according to Isaac, kept one of the rings stolen that night to give to his then girlfriend.
