Cut Throat Business is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by rapper Madd Dogg from his mansion at the Mulholland district of Los Santos, San Andreas


Carl Johnson arrives at the mansion to find Madd Dogg back in the studio, ready to make his comeback. He is watching rival rapper OG Loc on a nearby television; the media appear to be doing a live feature on him as he shooting his new music video. After listening carefully, Madd Dogg realizes that OG Loc's lyrics are actually from Dogg's own rhymebook, which Carl in fact stole for Loc. Carl and Dogg both agree to drop-in unannounced and make a cameo appearance in the middle of Loc's video.

As the two arrive at the shoot, OG Loc is being interviewed. When he sees them, Loc attempts to escape in a Vortex. Carl and Dogg take the two other hovercrafts and give chase. Upon reaching Verona Beach, Loc abandons his Vortex and switches to a go-kart. Carl and Madd Dogg take the two other Go-Karts and continue chasing Loc through Los Santos. The chase comes to an end as Loc attempts to escape to the Blastin' Fools Records headquarters in Rodeo. Madd Dogg and Carl confront Loc, who initially denies the theft but then attempts to buy their silence. Jimmy Silverman, one of the executives of the record company, overhears their conversation and offers to sign Madd Dogg to the record label and sue Loc. Loc is sent to go get them all some lunch; his career is now finished.

Madd Dogg: Man, that fake-ass LOC!

Carl Johnson: Loc? But he's terrible!

Madd Dogg: Motherfucker... I knew there was something familiar about those rhymes he was kicking. They're from my rhyme book! That's my money! And those are my hoes! And that's my video he's shooting today.

Carl Johnson: Hey, Loc - go get us some lunch.

OG Loc: You get lunch!

(OG Loc tries to take Madd Dogg's rhymebook and go.)

Madd Dogg: Excuse me, gangsta - I don't think so!

OG Loc: Man - get outta here. Don't let him be pushing me! Don't be pushing me...


The player is rewarded with respect upon completing this mission. If Sweet's mission Grove 4 Life is done, the next mission Riot will be unlocked. Also, there will now be Vortex and Kart spawn points.


  • When chasing OG Loc, if you are far behind him, he'll drive slower; being very close to him will make him drive faster, indicating that there is no way to get in front of him.
  • This mission is scripted so that OG Loc's driving path is pre-determined. If the game is modded so that objects - such as islands - are lying in his way, he will simply drive through them.
