The Yardies, sometimes known unofficially as the Hillside Posse, operate out of the Schottler/Beechwood City area of Broker, Liberty City. They are first seen in Grand Theft Auto IV. They are based on the real life Jamaican Posse of New York City.

The gang is led by Real Badman, a respected Jamaican gangster, and they deal mostly in cannabis and firearms. They have a concentrated presence in a Dukes apartment complex, but they operate largely from the Homebrew Café in Beechwood City, Broker.

Jacob Hughes, the protégé of Badman, a prolific arms dealer and a good friend of Niko Bellic, is a notable member of this crew.

The gang frequently clashes with other drug dealers in Dukes and Broker, and employs hired guns like Niko Bellic to assist in these matters; additionally, Russian gangsters at one point attempted to intimidate Badman, hoping to absorb the Yardies’ operations; Badman responded by murdering the gang, with Niko's aid.

Yardies are Rastafarians; they speak Iyaric, frequently smoke marijuana, and wear their hair in dreadlocks. They can be seen wearing brightly colored suits or army fatigues, and some wear Rasta tams, which is a sign of rudeboys style. They are well-armed, most members carrying pistols, or occasionally a knife or baseball bat. Their cars are painted in the colors of the Jamaican flag: green, black, and gold. They can be found in the Beechwood City region, particularly the Homebrew Café, and have a presence in neighboring Schottler and Willis as well.

If Niko is engaged in a fist-fight outside the Homebrew Café, Yardies will aid him. The same goes when a gun is fired on the Schottler Medical Center.

In The Lost and Damned's gang wars side mission, the Yardies are one of the possible gangs you need to fight and kill.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony's drug wars side mission, the player will sometimes steal unnamed drugs (likely cannabis) from Yardies; however, Little Jacob or Real Badman are never seen in these drug wars.

The gang's favorite radio stations are Tuff Gong Radio, Massive B Soundsystem 96.9 and RamJam FM.
