House Party is a two-part mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson, the first of which is the last by part-time Grove Street Families member and aspiring rapper Jeffrey "OG Loc" Cross from the employees' door at the back of the Burger Shot he works at in Marina, Los Santos, and the second of which is by deuteragonist and Grove Street Families leader Sean "Sweet" Johnson from Loc's house in Ganton, Los Santos, San Andreas.

Note. While the first part can be accessed anytime, the second part can only be accessed between 22:00 and 6:00.


Carl goes to the Burger Shot in Marina, to find that Loc has violated his parole by quitting his job as a janitor. Before he is imprisoned again, he wants to have one last party. He tells Carl to get a new haircut, and some new clothes before telling him to bring some girls to the party. Upon arriving to the party, Loc is on the mic blaring his rather annoying lyrics, doing shout-outs to Carl as he enters through the front door. The other Grove Street Families members are heading to the back to shelter their ears from Loc's rants.

Outside, Sweet, childhood friend Lance "Ryder" Wilson, Carl and the other Grove Street members are glad to be out of the wake of Loc's bumping music. Suddenly, a fellow member dashes in on his bike and tells the gang that the Ballas are heading in their direction, with a plan to gun down the leading members of the gang.

Ryder goes out to procure more street force and possibly even gather friend Melvin "Big Smoke" Harris, during which time Carl makes quick work of the invading Ballas, protecting his brother, and the rest of the Grove Street Families from harm, following which they return to the party.


(Carl arrives at the Burger Shot back.)

OG Loc: Hey, fuck you, man! And I don't care what you heard, I ain't nobody's Ass Technician, bitch!

CJ: Hey, hey, whassup, Loc?

OG Loc: 'Technician' ain't gangsta, that's wassup!

CJ: I heard that!

OG Loc: Listen, Carl, If I'm going back to a cell, I wanna have a big party first. This may be my last chance to get heard.

CJ: Okay, so what's the plan?

OG Loc: Well I'm gonna slide back over to Grove Street and get those sounds bombastic-fantasic.

CJ: Alright, so what do you want me to do?

OG Loc: I want you to get ready for the party! Then get some girls, man!

CJ: OK...

OG Loc: Get some real fly girls, you know what I'm saying? The ones in the bikinis and shit, in the videos? I told you, brother, I am the chronicler of our struggle, the voice of the Families, like Moses, only keeping it real. You know what I'm saying?

CJ: You know I said it...

(Over the course of the game, as the clock strikes evening, Carl gets a call from Loc.)

OG Loc: Hey CJ, word up, G!

CJ: Hey Loc!

OG Loc: This party is jumping! We got a gang of crazy ass bitches in the house! You comin' over homie?

CJ: I don't know man, I had some plans tonight.

OG Loc: But we had a big disaster. I won't be rapping. My mic's broken.

CJ: Okay, I'm a come over right now then!

(Carl arrives in Ganton, entering Loc's house as he raps on the mic.)

OG Loc: Yeah, yeah, yeah... this is me, OG Loc, in the house, baby... And I'm gonna... drop it down for all my real gangsta niggaz... All of my gangsta bitches... Speaking about gangsta, look at my man CJ right there - what up, nigga? What UUUUUUUUPPPP...

CJ: ...thought the motherfucking mic was broke...

Ryder: (enters) Hey, what's up, homie!

CJ: What's up, Ryder.

Ryder: All the homies in the back, man, away from this whack music.

CJ: Man, I'm furious. C'mon.

(Loc starts freestyling.)

OG Loc: I'm the man in the place, Punch you in the face, A gun in my waist... It's Loc, baby! Yo it's Loc Loc - It's Loc Loc...

(Outside, in the front of the house, there is a huge Families assemble.)

Ryder: Damn, man, his lyrics is horrible!

CJ: That dude needs some work, man.

Ryder: Hell, yeah.

Sweet: What up, fellas.

CJ: Hey, whats up with you, baby!

Sweet: So you back on the block, huh?

CJ: Hell, yeah.

Sweet: You a real killer, huh?

Ryder: What he done that I ain't - huh?

Sweet: What you talkin' about, nigga?

CJ: Yeah, relax, man!

(A fellow Grove Street member runs in on his bike.)

GSF Member: Hey, a Ballas posse is about to run up! They headed up here right now!

Sweet: Looks like we backed them Ballas against the wall, huh?

Ryder: Hey, CJ, strap up! It's Grove Street!

(Gang prepares for a gang war.)

Ryder: Shit, I'll go round up some homies! I'm a get Smoke and some Grove boys.

Sweet: OK, get some cars, block the road. The rest of y'all get heated.

(Sweet and another GSF member block the street with cars.)

(A car speeds into the roadblock.)

Sweet: Take your positions. Carl, give (get) some company, double those fools!

(Four Ballas appear on the Ganton Bridge after the ones in the roadblock are killed.)

Sweet: Ae ae, look, more them up on the bridge.

(More Ballas spring up after the ones on the bridge are killed, with five appearing in the alleyway beside The Johnson House.)

Sweet: Carl, cover the alleyway! (as some appear behind) Behind us, CJ, behind us!

(Carl kills all the Ballas trying to invade the territory, and the group proceeds back to the party.)


CJ: Man, I ain't never seen the Ballas roll that deep before.

Sweet: Yeah, they heard Carl Johnson was running with his brother again!

CJ: Yeah, fo' sure.

Sweet: C'mon, let's get back to the party.

CJ: Shit man, once Loc got off the mic, then the party got started.



  • During the mission, the two Tahomas, Voodoo, and the Greenwood are all bulletproof and fireproof. However the Greenwood and Voodoo lose their properties when the mission is over, yet the Tahomas will keep theirs.
  • Ryder mentions that he will go get Smoke and "some Grove boys", yet neither of them help at all in this mission, implying their reluctance to kill the Ballas and their consequent betrayal to Grove Street. However, the length of the mission will often provide a contrary view against this argument.
  • Despite the in-game text telling you to "change clothes" and "get a new haircut" before the party starts, nothing will happen if you chose not to do so.
  • While attacking the Ballas on the bridge, part of the bridge railing will break apart, but after the mission, it will be completely repaired. This animation is also identical to the one in End of the Line, when Frank Tenpenny drives a Fire Truck off the bridge.
  • Any surviving Grove Street member will stand outside OG Loc's house and guard it. He cannot be recruited after the mission at all.
  • During the shootout, Sweet's health won't be affected until the player, for any reason, enters The Johnson House and exits. However, if Carl tries to leave the periphery of Ganton from any side of Grove Street, the mission will fail.
  • There is no wanted level attained during the mission.
  • During the phone conversation where Loc tells Carl that he wouldn't be rapping due to his broken mic, Carl replies in sarcasm that he would be coming over. This could most likely be a bluff on Loc's part, as the actual mission cutscene shows him rapping full force on his mic, meaning that he was probably aware Carl didn't like his voice and lyrics, despite him obliging to help the wannabe rapper.
