OG Loc

Life's a Beach is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by fellow Grove Street Families member and aspiring rapper OG Loc, from the Burger Shot he works for in the Marina district of Los Santos, San Andreas.

Note: This mission can only be started from between 22:00 and 06:00.

MissionEdit

Carl recently assisted OG Loc by taking out a Vagos gang member who disrespected him in prison. Now in a technical job at a Burger Shot, Loc is planning on putting together a house party for his album release, but he requires a sound system to amplify his tunes. A beach party is occurring at the nearby Santa Maria Beach, and it so happens that they have in their possession a sound system in the back of a Pony van.

Carl goes to the party, meeting up with the DJ, and attempts to gain access to the sound system. He is challenged to a dance battle, requiring the player to beat the song Hollywood Swinging by Kool & The Gang, by scoring a minimum of 2500 points to pass. Once Carl has successfully passed the challenge, the DJ invites Carl into her van, which she refers to as her "office". Given the opportunity, Carl steals the van, throwing the DJ out and prompting two party-goers to pursue the van in their cars. In the ensuing chaos, Carl manages to take the van to a garage in Commerce, completing the mission.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the beach party.
  • Get a score of 2500 or greater to gain access to the sound van.
  • Steal the sound van.
  • Get the van back to the garage.

TipsEdit

  • To avoid the car chase, dump the cars in the water by pushing them. However, make sure not to pass on the red spot near the DJ or kill the DJ. To be on the safe side, try not to make the cars kill the attendees, too.

RewardsEdit

The reward for completing this mission is an increase in respect. The mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes is unlocked.

Although it is stated in walkthroughs for the game that the Dancing Minigame inside nightclubs is unlocked after completing this mission, it is in fact unlocked from the beginning of the game if Carl enters the Alhambra club.
