Cleaning the Hood is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Sean Johnson.

The mission introduces the "crack" aspect of the storyline, explaining how it has corrupted Los Santos.


Ryder, Big Smoke and Sweet are inside Sweet's house and talking about the dealing with crack in the city as CJ arrives. After an agreement, Ryder and CJ decide to take care of business and deal with some of the crack dealers that supply the Grove Street gang members with drugs. They first go to see B Dup as CJ wants to recruit some of his old friends.

Upon arriving, B Dup angrily tells the two to stay out of his place and Big Bearis seen as his "crack slave" while CJ tries to convince him to return to the Grove Street team. Ryder and CJ both go outside and spot a crack dealer nearby selling drugs to a Grove Street gang members. They kill him and Ryder finds out about the dealer's home.

The pair then drove to Crystal Gardens and entered the crack den in Idlewood and beating  every Ballas gang member inside. After finishing off everybody witnessing the attack, they head back to Ganton.
