South Central (1992)
Miklo and Montana have a conversation about parole that is very similar to the one Bobby and Ali have,
The character of the base head, the one that cleans toilets for Game's "Big Bear" character, is taken from the character of Glenn Plummer's basehead friend in prison in South Central (1992). The idea of the San Andreas character having been a former gang member turned basehead, also helps show this parallel. Also, Carl Johnson is based on Glenn Plummer's character Bobby Johnson. They both look like each other and have the same last name not to mention they are experiencing betrayals, hopelessnes and gang activity. Groove Street and Deuce have many things in common like the same strategies.
