I know what you're thinking. Ben Brooks isn't in the music business, what does this mean? Is he about to step in and revolutionize the whole fucking industry? Well, let me ask you this: What if I am?
— Ben Brooks about the leak Dr. Dre's unreleased song.

Ben Brooks is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor antagonist in Grand Theft Auto Online, as part of The Contract update.



He is a crypto investor, billionaire and owner of the Richman Mansion in Los Santos. According to him, he became a billionaire aged 16. [2]

Events of Grand Theft Auto Online

At some point in 2021, he got hold of a copy of Dr. Dre's unreleased songs through WesLos Records executive producer Johnny Guns.

After following a Patriot Stretch to the Richman Mansion, Imani discovers he plans to set up a gathering at his mansion to do a world premiere and put it up for auction as an NFT.

Imani manages to find the address of his lawyer's house and the GTA Online Protagonist is sent to kidnap and deliver the lawyer to Franklin Clinton for an interrogation. According to Imani, Franklin successfully persuaded him to give them the access codes to the mansion in less than five minutes.

Soon after, the player used the lawyer's car and the access code to get through the mansion gates undetected and crash his party. Ben Brooks sends his private military security to kill the protagonist while he tries to escape on his Swift Deluxe.

Once the protagonist leaves the Richman Mansion, Ben Brooks can be killed either by damaging the helicopter enough to cause it to crash at Lago Zancudo, or if the helicopter makes it to the ocean, he will be killed on his Galaxy Super Yacht, HODL, so the player can retrieve the copy of Dre's phone.
