The player can begin this mission either as Trevor or Franklin. The mission starts at Franklins house, Lamar and Denise are there. Trevor appears. He gives Denise some money to buy something nice and shoos her back into the house. Trevor tell them he is new to the city and looking to make new friends and is keen to tag along with them to a drug deal.
The three along with Chop (Lamar’s dog) get into Lamars van and drive to Grove Street to buy the drugs from the Ballas. When they arrive at the dealers house he checks that they have the cash and are shown a white plastic wrapped block. Lamar checks that it is legit and is happy to hand over the cash but Trevor is more skeptical and wants a sample from the other side of the block. The dealer refuses. Trevor snatches the block form the dealer and reveals it to be a block of drywall. The dealer shouts out to the other Ballas and slams the door.
Armed Ballas members appear from houses and arrive in vehicles to shoot at the trio. Lamar tells Chop to go home which he does. As the shootout ensues the LSPD show up and make a roadblock, bringing the shootout to an end. Lamar leads Trevor and Franklin down an alleyway and into a flood channel. Once they reach the sea they see celebrity rapper MC Clip on a video shoot in front of three jet skis. The three steal the jetskis and to evade the cops head out into open sea. Franklin suggests that they would be harder to catch if they all split up and tey make their escape.
