The Hillside Posse, also known as the Yardies or the Jamaican Posse, are a gang that operates out of the Beechwood City/Schottler area of Broker and the Willis area of Dukes, Liberty City. They are first seen in Grand Theft Auto IV.
One of the members is Real Badman, a respected Jamaican gangster, and their businesses primarily consist of drug-trafficking (especially cannabis) and arms-trafficking. They have a concentrated presence in Broker and Dukes, in Schottler, Beechwood City and Willis, in various apartment complex, but mainly operate from the Homebrew Café in Beechwood City, Broker. As revealed in Shadow and Out of Commission/A Revenger's Tragedy, the gang seems to expand territories to Bohan and Alderney.
Yardies are Rastafarians; they speak Iyaric as well as patois, frequently smoke marijuana, and wear their hair in dreadlocks. They can be seen wearing brightly colored suits or army fatigues, and some wear Rasta tams, which is a sign of rudeboys style. They are well-armed, most members carrying pistols, or occasionally a knife or baseball bat. Their cars are painted in the colors of the Jamaican flag: green, black, and gold. They can mainly be found in the Beechwood City region, particularly the Homebrew Café, and have a smaller presence in neighboring Schottler and Willis as well.
In Chinatown Wars, they appear in Driven to Destruction, and some cars which are almost blown up in Bomb Disposal were most likely theirs. They are called "Yardies" most of the time in the game. There are also three Jamaican drug dealers.
- Bomb Disposal
- Driven to Destruction
- Missed the Boat? (a member is killed when going through the Steinway port)
