Ryder was a member of the Grove Street Families in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas before he turned on them to get into drugs with Big Smoke. At the start of the game he is one of the senior members of the GSF, and goes on a number of missions with Carl Johnson. He is also known to smoke a lot of weed. He is killed later in the game after being revealed to be in league with the Ballas, the primary rival gang of GSF, and CRASH officers Tenpenny, Pulaski and Hernandez.
Ryder was the Grove Street Families weapons and ammunition master. He robbed weapons from soldiers, an army base and trains loaded with ammo.
Ryder always comments on CJ's driving, with funny comments like ''Don't try to park us to up a tree or something''. Ryder used the most profanity out of any character in the game.
Ryder was expelled from high school for using drugs and harming a teacher for wearing Ballas colors.
Ryder's concept was inspired by rapper Eazy-E.
