Original Version

I need hits. I mean, hits!
— Jimmy Silverman in Cut Throat Business

Jimmy Silverman is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


He is a producer and manager working for Blastin' Fools Records. In the early 1990s he produced both Rochell'le and Madd Dogg, and in 1992 briefly produced OG Loc after Madd Dogg disappeared.

It is possible that a Jimmy's character is loosely based on Tom Silverman, founder of Tommy Boy Records. His appearance is accurate, but the label is placed in New York City.


Silverman has dark brown hair and wears a red cap, a letterman jacket over a black shirt and khaki shorts.

Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

After Madd Dogg and Carl Johnson chase OG Loc and retrieve Madd Dogg's rhyme book at the Blastin' Fools Records building in Los Santos, Silverman threatens to sue OG Loc and presumably drops him from the Blastin' Fools Records label.
