— Jimmy Iovine informing English Dave and the GTA Online Protagonist that they cancelled their trip to Cayo Perico

James Iovine (born March 11, 1953), known as Jimmy, is an American entrepreneur, record executive, former record producer, and media proprietor best known as the co-founder of Interscope Records. He appears in Grand Theft Auto Online, as himself in The Cayo Perico Heist update.


Events of Grand Theft Auto Online

The Cayo Perico Heist

Jimmy makes a cameo appearance during the Heist Prep: Gather Intel mission introductory cutscene with DJ Pooh and Dr. Dre. As the GTA Online Protagonist and English Dave are about to board the plane with Keinemusik, they pull up to the airport hangar in a Baller. They were supposed to join Juan Strickler's party in Cayo Perico and more of their entourage were supposed to follow in Dr. Dre's car, but when they hear it was stolen at Iovine's house with Dre's phone full of important data including unreleased music, they cancel their trip. Pooh organized Scott Storch to take their place.

The Contract

A year later in December 2021, Pooh contacts Franklin Clinton, co-owner of the F. Clinton and Partner "celebrity solutions agency", and asks the GTA Online Protagonist to retrieve Dr. Dre's stolen phone. They meet Pooh at the Los Santos Golf Club, and he introduces Franklin and the protagonist to Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.

Jimmy later appears during the mission Studio Time, where he warns Franklin through the phone about the hitmen breaking into Record A Studios. After the GTA Online Protagonist kills all of the hitmen, Dr. Dre explains to Jimmy that Johnny Guns is the one who stole his phone and sent the hitmen.

Right after Dr. Dre confronts Johnny Guns in the airport, Dre tells the GTA Online Protagonist that Jimmy was right when he told him not to "put out" his demos and materials he have been working for years.
