"My brother can be a real pain in the ass."
Carl "CJ" Johnson, "Home Coming"

Sean "Sweet" Johnson is one of the main characters in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. He's the leader of the Grove Street Families and the older brother of the game's protagonist, Carl "CJ" Johnson. Sweet is a prominent character throughout the Los Santos story arc before ending up in prison in the mission "The Green Sabre", and then he gets released from prison in the mission "Home Coming" during the Return to Los Santos story arc.

Why He's A Busta

  1. Sweet treats his brother CJ like crap:
    1. He lambasts his brother for missing the funeral of their mother, Beverly Johnson, and their brother Brian 5 years prior to the game's events, when it wasn't even CJ's fault in the former case, as C.R.A.S.H. arrested him as he arrived at Grove Street upon hearing about his mother's death and Frank Tenpenny left him to die in East Los Santos, a territory of the Families' rival gang, the Ballas.
    2. When CJ announced that he expanded operations in San Fierro and Las Venturas and got a mansion in Mulholland, instead of being proud of him, Sweet berates CJ for abandoning the hood (their home in Grove Street, Ganton), and unfairly compares him to Big Smoke (who already betrayed the Families at that point), when, again, CJ didn't leave the hood willingly, as he was arrested by C.R.A.S.H. and was left in Whetstone after the mission "The Green Sabre", and CJ doesn't even bother to correct his brother that Tenpenny made him leave Grove Street by force.
    3. It seems like all Sweet wants to do is live in Grove Street, despite Beverly wanting her sons to live a better, richer life. While it may sound like dedication to the Families at first, it also seems incredibly selfish on Sweet's side.
    4. Sweet constantly claims that CJ is doing everything for himself, and calls him a perpetrator at one point, making him sound incredibly jealous for CJ having a more successful life than him.
  2. At no point does Sweet ever show gratitude to CJ for breaking him out of prison, despite his brother going through so much trouble to do so.
  3. Prior to the events of the game, CJ was living in Liberty City for 5 years, and as a result, the Grove Street Families gang weakened in the intervening time, and fellow sets, like Seville Boulevard Families and Temple Drive Families, begun beefing and split from the Grove, and Sweet, despite being the gang's leader, made absolutely no attempt to strengthen the gang, blaming his brother CJ instead.
  4. Despite being against selling crack, in a later mission, "Beat Down on B Dup", he was almost willing to give in and smoke crack before CJ stops him, which makes him a hypocrite.
  5. Unlike Big Smoke and Ryder, Sweet doesn't have that many memorable lines.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Sweet's voice actor, Faizon Love, does a pretty good job voicing him.
  2. Even though it's very rude towards CJ, Sweet's line, "New clothes? N***a, what the fuck is this bullshit?!" from the mission "Home Coming", is quite funny. His line "This shit's real fucked up. Everything!" from "Sweet & Kendl" is also memorable.
  3. Despite being a jerk towards CJ for the most part, deep inside, he does care about his brother, their sister Kendl, and the Grove Street Families.
  4. Like everyone else, his design is good and memorable.
