- "Stretch has been released from prison, Lamar and Franklin take him out."
- ―GTA V description at Rockstar Games Social Club
Franklin meets Lamar at his house who reintroduces Stretch, who seems to have been just released from prison. Franklin doesn't seem too happy about his comeback, which starts an argument with each other but Lamar reminds them of business.
Franklin, Lamar and Stretch head over to Ammu-Nation and purchase a Pump Action Shotgun with a flashlight accessory, in case the deal goes wrong (If Franklin cannot afford it, then Lamar will loan him $1500). They then drive to a warehouse where they meet up with D, whom Franklin and Lamar kidnapped earlier with some help from Chop.
What at first appears as a deal turns out to be an ambush by the Ballas; D betrays them and Stretch shoots and kills him in the head. Franklin, Lamar, and Stretch then fight their way out, killing many groups of Ballas members and starting a fire inside. Then they realize that the police are just outside and have a police helicopter hovering over them. Franklin takes out the policemen in the helicopter. The trio make their way to the roads where they steal a vehicle to get away from the police.
The trio then drives back to Franklin's house after losing the cops.

Los Santos Shepherd Newspaper
"Something went very wrong as a drug deal at a recycling plant in La Puerta descended in to a violent shootout, leaving several gang members dead and police confused as to what has caused these recent upserge in extreme gang crime. The dead mostly seemed to be affiliated with the notorious Ballas gang. If this was an internecine struggle between different "sets" within the gang, or part of the Balllas eternal struggle with The Families, or a falling out with another of the city's many street gangs, is at this point unclear. The LSPD called for additional funding to look into the program and potentially restart some of their long since discredited anti-gang programs. Vinewood has applied for the movie rights to yesterday's events."

"Something went very wrong as a drug deal at a recycling plant in La Puerta turned into a violent shootout, leaving several gang members dead, and police confused as to what has caused this recent upsurge in extreme gang crime. The police have called for calm, and responded by flying a lot of helicopters over poor neighborhoods all night long in a show of community spirit."
- Scenes from this mission first appeared in the second GTA V trailer, and later in Franklin's character trailer.
- This is the first mission in the game in which it is required to destroy a helicopter or kill the armed soldiers in it. It is also the second mission which allows the player to kill police officers in the main story of GTA V, as you can kill North Yankton State Patrol officers in the Prologue.
- The driver of the Jackal can be spared if the player steals the car before Stretch shoots him.
- When Franklin leaves his house in the opening cutscene, there are a large amount of Families members in Forum Drive, even though in free roam, there is little Families presence near Franklin's house.
- If the player destroys the second police helicopter, the game may glitch and get rid of the wanted level, which is useful for the timing objective.
- Franklin will always put on a jacket with jeans and shoes in this mission.
- In the remastered edition, Lamar and Stretch can be seen driving away after the mission ends. If the player shoots the car, Stretch will step out and open fire at him. However, the player cannot shoot Stretch.
- If the player takes take Lamar's Emperor as a getaway car and abandons the Jackal, the Jackal will still appear near Franklin's house at the end of the mission and Stretch and Lamar will drive away in this car. However, Emperor will be still parked in the driveway and can be stored in the player's garage.
- If players do this mission after Franklin gets his second house, he will still enter as if he lives there. Oddly, sometimes in the opening cutscene, his room will still have his belongings, but as soon as the scene ends it will be empty.
- After this mission, the Ammu-nation clerk will become interested in Franklin, which starts a conversation between both of them if Franklin visits the store.
- This is the first mission where a character, a member (or leader) of a group, is executed by the Antagonist, the second being The Wrap Up, where Steve Haines kills Andreas Sanchez for informing Haines' superiors at the FIB of his corruption.
- When Stretch shoots D, his pistol has a more realistic firing sound.
