In the rap world, "stop snitching" is a powerful mantra - and the star known as The Game is one of its most popular proponents.
But the New York man who manages Game and other hip-hop heavyweights - Jimmy (Henchman) Rosemond - is named as an informer in court records, the Daily News has learned.
Rosemond has given information at least three times to state and federal law enforcement officials since the mid-1990s, documents reveal.
One of Rosemond's former lawyers even cited his repeated cooperation with the authorities in asking for leniency in a Los Angeles gun case.
Agent Alfred Zanyet-Pérez was shot and killed Friday while conducting an undercover operation for the Drugs and Narcotics Division of the Puerto Rico Police Department.
