Skinhead in GTA IV

The Skinheads are a small-time gang in Grand Theft Auto IV.  They are depicted as low-level drug peddlers, car thieves, and thugs. Some have serious drug habits. They dress in typical skinhead attire, a combination Doc Martin-style boots, tight t-shirts, jeans with suspenders, and bomber jackets. They are most commonly found in North Holland, Purgatory, and Star Junction. Known members include Jimmy Kand and Marty Boldenow.

They appear to have a working relationship with the Petrovic Bratva and the Yardies. In the online multiplayer game Mafiya Work, they operate as low level drug pushers for Kenny Petrovic, as well as car thieves in Car Jack City. Their relationship with the Yardies is demonstrated by Marty Boldenow's association with them, as well as the car theft missions for Brucie; in one mission, where Niko is required to pick up a Feltzer, a skinhead is seen dealing with a Jamaican.

They don't appear to be a very organized or disciplined gang. Many members appear to be drug addicts. Jimmy Kand and his cronies appear to heroin, and in TLAD, when Johnny Klebitz picks up Ashley from the projects, he has to get passed a few skinheads hooked on methamphetamine.

Influence

Rather than being based on neo-Nazi skinheads, the skinheads in Liberty City don't seem to have any racist undertones. They appear to be on good terms with the Jamaicans. This seems akin to early skinheads in the UK; working-class youth who were heavily influenced by the Jamaican rudeboy subculture.
