- "This ain't new age shit, it's fact. You get what you give, fool."
- ―Stretch to Franklin and Lamar, "The Long Stretch".
Harold Joseph joined the Chamberlain Gangsters Families, eventually becoming a respected "OG", a high-ranking, veteran member of the gang, as well as gaining the nickname "Stretch". He became good friends with Lamar Davis, but he developed a strong dislike for Franklin Clinton.
At some point prior to 2013, Stretch was arrested and taken to prison for an unknown crime.
Events of GTA V
Near the beginning of the game, he departs from prison for crimes that are never revealed, and Lamar plans a sort of reunion for himself, Stretch and Franklin. The trio heads towards a deal with D, which turns out to be an ambush by the Ballas, as revenge for D being kidnapped by Lamar earlier, but the trio manages to escape.
He is slowly revealed to be an associate of the Ballas, and has attempted to have both Lamar and Franklin killed during several set ups, including the kidnapping of Lamar by the Ballas, although all attempts were foiled by Franklin and his friends, Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips.
By the end of the game, Franklin is given a choice to either kill Michael and Trevor, or side with them as they kill their enemies, including Stretch. Should the player choose to kill the antagonists, Michael will be sent to assassinate Stretch; Stretch will be hanging out with a group of Ballas when he is confronted and killed by Michael.
For some reason, he shows a very strong dislike towards Franklin Clinton and the two frequently argue, leaving Lamar to pick a side. He appears to have a very short temper, assaulting Franklin for poking fun at him for "dropping the soap" in prison, and immediately shooting D in the face when discovering that he had betrayed them.
Stretch is a short, bulky man with numerous tattoos covering his body. He wears usual CGF clothes including a white T-shirt, baggy jeans, a green hat and a gold chain.
- GTA V
- Stretch betraying the Families to join the Ballas is similar to how Ryder betrayed the Grove Street Families to join the Ballas in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
