|For the character, see Madd Dogg.|
- "Stay the fuck away - stay the fuck away!! I'm the best rapper in the universe! I'll jump! I'll jump!"
- ― Madd Dogg
Carl walks over to the south side of the casino, encountering two people shouting at someone on the roof of the casino to jump. One of the two tells Carl that the person on the roof is Madd Dogg, a formerly successful rapper. Carl persuades Madd Dogg not to jump off the roof, but Madd Dogg says his life doesn't mean anything anymore. He has lost everything, from his money to his fame, after someone stole his rhyme book and killed his manager. Carl once again tries to make him reconsider about jumping, but Madd Dogg ignores Carl's statement. Right after, two croupiers attempt to save Madd Dogg from jumping, but he tells the croupiers to stay away.
Carl, in an attempt to save Madd Dogg from suicide, steals a nearby Walton and parks near the casino. Madd Dogg jumps from the roof in a drunken state, landing onto a pile of boxes. Carl then takes Madd Dogg to a rehabilitation center. On the way, Madd Dogg tells Carl that he is going to get a new manager, and might consider Carl, to which Carl agrees. Carl drops off Madd Dogg at the rehabilitation center, where two paramedics bring him in, and the mission ends.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Use the pickup truck around the corner to rescue Madd Dogg
- Catch Madd Dogg when he jumps
- Drive Madd Dogg to the hospital CAREFULLY. Each bump reduces his chance of survival
- The reward for this mission is an increase in respect. The mission Saint Mark's Bistro is unlocked, but only if the missions Freefall, Green Goo and High Noon are done.
- If the player uses the "pedestrians attack each other" cheat before this mission, Madd Dogg will immediately jump after the opening cutscene, making this mission impossible to complete. If it happens, the only way to fix it is by using a save game editor such as hmvartak's online glitch repair tool, or to start a new game (Note: Do not use cheats that affect the gameplay up to this mission). This is one of a few missions to not work correctly if too many cheats are used, the others being Burning Desire, Tanker Commander, 555 We Tip and, in some cases, Photo Opportunity. Although, players have reported that they suffered this glitch without using any cheats.
- It is absolutely imperative to remember to aim the bed of the truck at Madd Dogg, not the cab. If Madd Dogg lands on the cab, a bone crunching sound will be heard and he will be killed, which will fail the mission.
- The two bystanders attempting to goad Madd Dogg into jumping can also be seen in the cutscene of Dam and Blast and Mountain Cloud Boys. This is the only time they are seen in game. They also don't have any dialogue.
- The Walton used in this mission spawns with a unique white paintjob, and can be kept after the mission.
- If the player recruits Madd Dogg using the 'Recruit Anyone' cheat and manages to get him off the ledge without him dying, he will still retain the 'drunk' walk cycle when walking towards the player.
