Tagging Up Turf is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by his brother and Grove Street Families leader Sweet from his house in Grove Street, Ganton, Los Santos, San Andreas.


Sweet and Big Smoke are playing basketball as Carl arrives. After the game, Sweet questions Carl's statement that he's back on the set for good. To prove this, Sweet has Carl spray over enemy gang tags around Los Santos.

Sweet and Carl enter Sweet's Greenwood and drive over to a Ballas gang tag in Idlewood. Sweet sprays over it, while Carl proceeds and sprays over two other tags nearby before entering Sweet's car. They now head to East Los Santos, also Ballas territory. Carl is left alone and he sprays the Grove Street gang tag over three more Ballas tags before Sweet returns with his Greenwood precisely as Carl finishes his work. The two drive back to Grove Street. Once there, Sweet gives Carl money as a reward before deciding to split up.


(Big Smoke and Sweet is playing basketball in a backyard on Grove Street)

Sweet: C'mon, fat boy. C'mon, fat boy. Fat boy - look at you, look at...

Big Smoke: Yeah, yeah, watch out, fool... Watch this, watch this... (laughing)

(Big Smoke scores and Carl is approaching)

Sweet: Look who's here, it's running man. What, you think you back on the set?

Carl Johnson: I told you that, bro.

Sweet: Your word don't mean shit around here.

Carl: C'mon, man, gimme a break.

Sweet: We gotta go hit up the hood.

Big Smoke: Hey, CJ.

Sweet: Let them know you're back on the set. The Johnson brothers are rolling again. Take this paint and go hit shit up. Start with our own set first.

(Sweet gives Carl a spray can)

Big Smoke: Later on, we'll spread out and take the whole hood back.

Sweet: You already spreading out, fat man. Now let's play. Now see what you got, pork chop.

(Big Smoke and Sweet continue playing basketball)

(When Carl is about to leave, he is stopped by Sweet)

Sweet: Hey, wait up!

Carl: Thought you'd hang with your brother, huh?

Sweet: Aw, ease up little man, c'mon, it's been difficult. You wanna drive?

Carl: Yeah, for sure.

(Carl and Sweet enters Sweet's car and drives away)

(Carl and Sweet arriving in Idlewood)

Sweet: Watch for those rollers as I tag this up.

(Sweet sprays the GSF tag over a Ballas tag on the side of a bridge in Idlewood)

Sweet: There's another two Balla tags in the hood. You go get 'em and I'll keep the engine running.

(Carl sprays the two tags and return to Sweet's car)

Sweet: C'mon let's cruise into Ballas territory.

(Carl and Sweet arriving in East Los Santos)

Sweet: You hit this up here, and I'll go up and do another hood.

(Carl sprays the tags and Sweet comes driving to Carl)


(Carl enters the car)

Sweet: Get us back to the hood, CJ!

(Arriving at Grove Street)

Sweet: Like riding a bike, ain't it, boy?

Carl: Yeah, it all comes back.

Sweet: How you doin' on the feddy?

Carl: I'm kinda short, you know. C.R.A.S.H. took all my paper, man, left me with nothing but small change.

Sweet: Here, get yourself a beer or something.

(Sweet gives Carl some money and they hug)

Sweet: I'll catch up with you.


The rewards for this mission are $200 and an increase in respect. The mission Cleaning the Hood is unlocked. A spray can now spawns at the bedroom inside the Johnson House.

  • If the player has already sprayed over those tags before the mission, they will become undone and will be deducted from the total number of sprayed tags until resprayed over again.
  • During the cut scene where Sweet drives away in his car to spray other tags, he is in the passenger seat rather than the driver's seat.
  • When Sweet drops off Carl to respray the tags, he mentions that he is going to spray some more tags in another territory, yet once he drives off he can be seen in the middle of the cul-de-sac in Ganton, now in the driver seat.
