Federal prosecutors say that a narcotics ring used the Los Angeles offices of Interscope Records for pickups and deliveries of large amounts of cocaine and cash. According to documents from the Department of Justice published by the Smoking Gun, the allegation came in a letter containing evidence against James Rosemond, the CEO of Czar Entertainment and manager of the Game. Rosemond has been indicted on 18 felony charges for his role in the drug trafficking organization.

The Drug Enforcement Administration's investigation into Rosemond claims that the Interscope offices were used as a transit point in transporting large music cases full of money or drugs to studios in New York via the shipping company Rock-It Cargo. Rosemond's crew apparently used this method for some time, until a case was seized earlier this year, when they allegedly switched to using cars with hidden compartments.
