Carl arrives at Sweet's doorstep where he overhears Ryder talking to Sweet, insulting Carl's driving skills, with Ryder not knowing Carl is behind him. Ryder tells Carl that he's always crashing cars, but Sweet convinces Ryder to agree to Carl driving, while he rides shotgun. Carl, Sweet, Ryder and Big Smoke hop into Sweet's car and head to Ballas territory around the Jefferson/Glen Park areas to perform drive-bys. The gang arrive and pull over to go over the plan, with Sweet telling Carl to keep driving and not stop the car at any time.
The gang end up shooting three sets of Ballas gang members, before killing a fourth and final set in Glen Park. At this point, they receive police attention. Carl drives over to Pay 'n' Spray to lose them, before driving the gang back to Grove Street.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
Get in the car
Drive your homies into Balla territory
Take out the first group of Ballas
Take out the second group of Ballas
Take out the third group of Ballas
Take out the fourth group of Ballas
Use the nearby Pay 'n' Spray to lose the cops
Take your homies back to the hood
The reward for completing this mission is $500 and increased respect. The missions Home Invasion and Sweet's Girl are also unlocked. The Ballas will now become hostile towards Carl and will shoot at him whenever he is spotted in Ballas territory.

If Carl gets out of the car, Sweet will tell him "not to run on [him] again". If Carl walks too far away from the car, Ryder will say, "Damn! He shook us!" before Big Smoke takes the wheel and drives off. The mission will fail and the message "Are you sure you're down for the 'hood?" will appear on-screen. A video of this can be seen here.
Ryder's comment on CJ's driving could be a reference to the driving of many Grand Theft Auto players and the many crashes they encounter.
The only way to actually lose the wanted level in this mission is to go to the Pay 'n' Spray the mission tells you to as the others won't work. A video of this can be seen here.
It is not possible to lose wanted level in this mission by picking up police bribes, a video of this can be seen here.
