"Listen, if you're with me and we're gonna go all the way, Lean with me." ― Avon BarksdaleThe Leanbois are a Los Santos street gang. They are involved in most criminal activities; from robbing banks, drug and gun dealing, gang warfare.
Avon was the one who came up with idea of naming the gang, the Leanbois.
General Description Edit
The Leanbois maintain a presence on Lean Street (Grove Street). Members are known for wearing red clothing, and often drive red vehicles.
The Return of Avon Edit
Avon returned to Los Santos with the intentions to gain a more significant presence for the Leanbois, while reuniting with original members; Buddha, Tony and Saab.
They planned also to grow in numbers, this resulted in the Leanbois recruiting Eddie Delish, after being associated with the gang for some time.
Otto and Cocaine Edit
But there was a lack of trust and hatred when Saab first met Jaclyn "Jackie" Hyde at the dance club in Vinewood. Saab went up to Jackie as he took an immediate interest in her. Later that day, she befriended Otto, and despite Saab's efforts, he was unsuccessful when she eventually chose Otto over Saab.
This caused a lot of tension between the Leanbois and Otto, and this only worsened when they decided to take her from work and took her hostage in a bank robbery. Otto, came into town and heard about it, went to Bolingbroke Penitentiary and proceeded to shoot both Saab and Buddha in the kneecaps. This event, resulted in Jackie getting kidnapped by both Saab and Buddha as they wanted to use her as leverage against Otto, who had told them that he didn't care about her.
This turned out to be a lie and led to Jackie being killed by Buddha & Saab.
When Otto heard about Jackie's death, and that the Leanbois were somehow involved in it - he retaliated by kidnapping Saab, and proceeded to drive to an abandoned farm and forcing information out of him. When Joe got to their location, they hauled Saab inside the car without knowing that Tony was getting reinforcements after finding them under the shed. Under one of the Los Santos bridges in the sewers, they started to plant large amounts of cocaine and guns on Saab, with Joe, Yung Dab and Francis "Frankie" Scaletta. They all shot at him before firing shots in the distance, and leaving him there for the police to find.
The Leanbois started to make a plan to take down Otto by planting C4 in his car and setting it up ablaze. In order to distract Otto, Avon set up a meeting in front of the courthouse to have a face to face discussion, which neither had any intentions of doing so. When Otto didn't show up, Saab, on top of the crane, spotted Otto on a roof opposite the courthouse, and told them what happened.
Moments later when they came down from the ladder of the roof, both Otto and Joe got shot at by the Leanbois hiding in the bushes. The feud seemed to have died down, but there seemed to be visible signs of animosity towards the two parties whenever they would encounter each other.
They never encounter each other again, until Otto started doing security for the Vanilla Unicorn. Which the Leanbois and Vagos were trying to attack, because they felt Vanilla Unicorn Strip Club didn't representthe neutral ground. The Leanbois and Speedy found that they didn't like Otto's involvement with the Vanilla Unicorn, and proceeded to hunt him down.
While looking for Otto, they found his right-hand man, Joe, standing outside the new apartments by the coast alone. This encounter resulted in Speedy, Buddha, Ricky and Denzel kidnapping Joe and threatening to kill him unless Otto paid them $150,000, which he did, through seven bricks of cocaine.
After that, an friend of both the Vagos and the Leanbois, Siz Fulker bought all seven bricks of cocaine.
The Disappearance of Avon and the New Members Edit
The Leanbois became increasingly inactive because of the disappearance of Avon and Eddie. Other members were also doing various other things, and suffered the fact of not being around at the same time. Because of this situation, it was hinted through others that the Leanbois were breaking up. This was not the case.
Saab, Tony and Buddha decided to have a conversation about the current situation of the Leanbois and decided to try to hold down Grove Street more consistently, and planned to start recruiting more members.
They decided to recruit Ricky Robins, Curtis Swoleroid, Denzel Williams and Ellie Dono. After proving themselves by going to war countless times Curtis, Denzel and Ellie were made official Leanbois by Buddha & Tony. Ricky was never made official because he stopped coming around.
The newest members also held down territory during turbulent times when other members were not in the city. The Leanbois are stronger than ever and look to expand their reach in the south side.
Grove Street and the Ballas Edit
Buddha re-purchased his grandma's house on Grove Street, this caused the rest of the Leanbois to purchase homes on Grove Street. The Leanbois started referring Grove Street as "Lean Street."
This provoked the Ballas, while they proceeded to ask the Leanbois for rent money. Which they refused. This caused an ongoing war with the Leanbois over turf.
This war went on for months. Although things have reached more of a compromise, after Big E became the leader of the Ballas.
The war with the Ballas denouncing the turf to the Leanbois.
The Leanbois started a altercation with the Misfits over there traphouse, which led to a few days of shootouts. Eventually the Leanbois gained access to the traphouse.
After a week, the city opened a Taco Shop and removed the trap houses. The Leanbois planned to run the shop, so did the Vagos and decided would be beneficial to run the shop together.
The Leanbois started running there large amounts of weed and cash through the shop. They started making a lot of money from the shop, but it also caused issues with other groups & people who wanted to be involved with the with the Taco Shop.
Specifically the Misfits, which eventually led to taco shop being shoot at. The Leanbois started responding and having daily shootouts with the Misfits.
At Odds with Chang Gang Edit
The Leanbois and the Chang Gang have had a healthy relationship with one another for a very long time. However, tensions became worse when the two organizations:
- Chang Gang acquaintance Tyrone Biggums got laid out by Tony Corleone at the Ballas cul-de-sac for not paying the Leanbois corner selling tax.
- Chang Gang tried to impose their influence in the Southside and tried to take over the Vagos-Leanbois dominated Taco Shop. Additionally, they do not like the taxation rules of the Southside therefore Chang Gang answered back by taxing the Jewelry Store and the Vault, which furthered the tensions between the Southside and Chang Gang.
- Chang Gang kidnapped Al Saab and stabbed him on-top of Mt. Chilliad then blowing him up near Sandy Shores after the two gangs met up by Fast Lane Imports to meet and tried to settle their disputes, however that did not happen and that was the breaking point for the war.
The Leanbois with the help of the Vagos (mostly Flippy, for now) are now waging war against the Chang Gang and the relationships between the two have deteriorated to the point where Chang Gang will actively gun people down if they are in the same vehicle with any of the members of the Leanbois.
Paleto Firefight Edit
After several car firefights and skirmishes (mostly ending in Chang Gang's favour), the Leanbois and Chang Gang met in Paleto for a foot fight (both sides agreed no cars) on March 24th, 2020. The tense six-on-six shootout lasted 40 minutes, with the Leanbois securing the win only losing one member in the fight.
The LSPD rushed the Leanbois in the aftermath, pursuing them to Grandma's House. An epic shootout ensued, involving Leanbois, Chang Gang, and the LSPD.
Big D vs Ellie (the Maze) Edit
End of War Terms Edit
Following Paleto and the Maze fights, both gangs came to respectful terms and ended the conflict.
