GTA 5: The Ballad of Rocco Mission Guide (Gold Medal)

Michael already put a beatdown on Rocco Pelosi when Solomon Richards sent Michael to convince the director and one of the main actors for his movie, Meltdown.

This time around, Michael catches Rocco in the act of beating up old man Solomon Richards in his backyard. Solomon Richards asks Michael to chase down Rocco and deal with him once and for all.

We have outlined everything you need to know about The Ballad of Rocco and how you can get a Gold Medal from completing this mission in GTA 5.

The Ballad of Rocco Synopsis

Michael arrives at Richards Majestic Productions to meet up with Solomon Richards. He comes just in time as Rocco and his accomplice, Gianni, beat up Solomon Richards for breaching a deal.

Michael checks up on Solomon Richards to see if he’s alright. Solomon asks Michael to chase down Rocco Pelosi and Gianni. Michael swiftly agrees, gets in one of the Gallivanter Ballers parked within the compound, and gives chase to Rocco and Gianni. As soon as Michael arrives, Rocco Pelosi and Gianni head to their car and leave.

Michael eventually catches up to Rocco and Gianni and starts to open fire on both guys to deal with them. Rocco and Gianni fire back, but Michael eventually kills both in the chase.

As soon as Michael deals with Rocco and Gianni, he gives Solomon a call to update him on the situation. Solomon Richards greets Michael with a line from one of his movies. Michael answers back with the movie title to prove himself a true fan but updates Solomon Richards on Rocco and Gianni by saying they met an unfortunate accident.

Solomon thanks Michael and tells him how he thinks his life would have been much easier if they had met 20 years prior. Michael agrees and feels the same way toward Solomon Richards.

As a gesture of gratitude for Michael’s help, Solomon Richards invites him back to the movie studio. Michael is flattered by the gesture, and both men celebrate with a drink. Depending on whether the player accepts the invitation, Solomon Richards will show Michael the end credits for one of his movies where Michael’s name is listed as an Associate Producer.
