James Rosemond, a drug lord long tied to the 1994 robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur, has reportedly implicated himself in the crime, according to the Village Voice. On trial for a separate drug trafficking case, Rosemond apparently admitted to the ambush. Court transcripts show Rosemond secretly confessed his involvement in the attack during a proffer session last fall, and that he was trying to figure out a cooperation deal that could lead to a lighter sentence.

In 1994, Shakur was robbed and shot at New York's Quad Recording Studios. Later, Tupac called out Rosemond for the crime in his track "Against All Odds." Last June, Dexter Isaac released a statement claiming Rosemond was the ringleader and that he was paid by Rosemond for the robbery.

Despite Rosemond's admission, the statute of limitations expired over 10 years ago, and no one will be tried.
