James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals at the W Hotel on Union Square.
According to the New York Daily News, Rosemond was hiding in plain sight at the posh hotel where the rooms can run $1,000 a night and the opulent features include in-room spa treatments, goose down pillows and 24-hour room service.
The Czar Entertainment head tried to bolt the Manhattan hotel but was tackled by marshals Tuesday morning, and chipped a tooth when he fell, officials said.
He is due in Brooklyn Federal Court later in the day.
In addition to the drug charges, Rosemond is accused of witness tampering and obstruction of justice, authorities said.
Last week, convicted killer Dexter Isaac claimed Rosemond ignited the East Coast-West Coast rap wars that left rappers Tupac Shakur & Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace shot to death.

Rosemond is facing 15 to 20 years in federal prison for his connection in a cocaine distribution ring.
Rosemond’s brother Kesner, Kahlil Abdullah and Henry “Black” Butler are also facing charges.
Abdullah and Butler are already cooperating with authorities.
