"You chose the wrong house to rob, fool!"
―Big Poppa

Big Poppa is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor antagonist in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Big Poppa was a drug dealer and affiliated with the Los Santos Vagos.

Events of GTA San Andreas

Big Poppa takes Madd Dogg's mansion in exchange for drugs. During the mission A Home in the Hills, Madd Dogg tells Carl Johnson and San Fierro Triad gang members about the events, saying that he was "powerless" against Big Poppa. Carl and the Triads assault and re-take the house. Carl then kills the fleeing Big Poppa.

Mission Appearances


  • Like Little Weasel, Kane, and Freddy, Big Poppa does not have a unique character model, simply appearing with a generic Vagos model.
  • Big Poppa is named after the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G.'s song Big Poppa (1994). Ironically, Biggie Smalls was in a lyrical rap war with the West Coast because of 2Pac 3–4 years later from the game's timeline.
    • Biggie Smalls referred to himself as "Big Poppa" or simply "Poppa".
