Just Business is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Big Smoke from his home in Idlewood, Los Santos, San Andreas.


Carl drops by Big Smoke's house and finds him in the garage. They agree to take a ride somewhere Smoke has business to take care of. They head to Commerce and Big Smoke enters the Atrium there. After a brief moment, a shoot-out is heard inside and Carl quickly rushes inside and protects Smoke from attacking Russian Mafia goons. Once all the Russians are dead the two hop on a BF-400 and start to escape. Carl acts as the shooter and kills as many enemies and on the way they jump above a ramp of a Packer to escape a roadblock they then head twords the storm drains flood control and get chased through the open drains later and all the Russians there die in a huge explosion while the bike survives. After a long chase, Big Smoke rides through an alley and in East Beach,reached via the old sewer as the two have lost all the Russians and agree to split up.


  • A scene in the mission featuring a Packer jumping off a surface road in slow motion into a storm drain channel which Big Smoke and CJ are using to escape is a nod to a similar scene in the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgment Day, where a large towtruck (driven by a Terminator) executes a similar stunt as it is pursuit of John Connor (also riding a motorcycle).
  • The BF-400 in this mission has the numberplate reading "IMY AK" (Similiar to the Feltzer in End of the Line).
  • Using the armor cheat while on the bike causes it to explode; killing both Big Smoke and CJ.
  • This is the only mission for Big Smoke that does not involve any Vagos in it.
  • There is a glitch where, if the bike explodes in the sewer control paths and kills Big Smoke before it says the bike is totaled you will get to keep all of you weapons for the rest of the game (even when you die and get arrested) and you have unlimited ammo for SMG, Micro-SMG, or TEC9 until you complete the mission.
  • The song at the start of the cutscene is Biz Markie - The Vapors. This song can also be heard on Playback FM.
  • When you reach the old sewer you dont have to shoot off the gate to get through however big smoke will say the gate cj the gate even when youve crashed through it.
