GTA 5: rapper teases return of San Andreas character B Dup

Thursday, 8th November 2012 13:27 GMT By Dave Cook

Grand Theft Auto 5 could see the return of character Mark ‘B Dup’ Wayne, as played by rapper Jayceon Terrell Taylor, otherwise known as The Game. Taylor confirmed that he has worked with Rockstar on the game in a new interview with Wired 96.5. Watch the video below. Thanks CVG.

Skip to 3.49 to hear The Game talk about his work with Rockstar, and namedrop B Dup.

In case you’re unsure of who B Dup is, the GTA Wiki describes him as, “A loyal member to the Grove Street Families but began to move away from the gang and into the drug scene. Dup begins to sell drugs in Los Santos, including to Barry Thorne (Big Bear), who he enslaves as his servant. Dup has Bear clean his home in Ganton. B Dup is also later heard on West Coast Talk Radio, saying ‘The problem in the hood is that there isn’t enough drugs in the hood’”.

Could The Game’s involvement signify B Dup’s return? We’ll know when GTA 5 launches worldwide on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Spring 2013

It was revealed earlier today that the game’s protagonist is an ‘East coast gangster’.

    I don’t think he’s returning as B Dup, he just said that he was called up by R* and that he’s doing some work with them, he doesn’t even mention B Dup til the other guy brings up SA. That’s the way i heard it anyway. Plus, R* have said in the past that the GTA3 era games are in a different universe to the current gen games.

    Sorry VG247 but lately you bring a bit misleading news. First about the screenshot of GTAV yesterday, clearly a game screenshot and not artwork. Then today the same mistake is made when you guys call it artwork again and you say that the guy on the jetski looks similar to the dude in the business suit screenshot, when it clearly is the guy from the quadbike artwork :)

    And in this video nowhere does The Game say he will be B-Dup in GTA V.

    @2 That’s because they simply looked at the headline and rewrote the story in their own words.

    I.E. 99% of modern “journalism”.

    @1, 2 & 3 I’ve edited the piece after playing that back about five more times. I thought it was pretty clear that he was stating B Dup’s return personally, but I’ve softened this down to a rumour.

    Thanks for flagging, and KAP, we make mistakes, we’re human just like everyone else. We appreciate it when people point our things that need fixed. There’s no need to be so brash about it.

    Thanks guys :)

    Good going man :)

    If it’s not too much of a hassle, edit the other GTA articles too from today and yesterday. Cause it quite clearly is the quad bike artwork guy and the latest screenshot is not artwork :D
