Assuming that you haven't completed any side missions, collected any balloons, or anything else that will contribute to 100% completion, the story missions will be completed at about 40% in.

Ken Rosenberg does not appear in the game, but is known to all GTA veterans as one of Tommy Vercetti's closest allies in Vice City.
Los Santos reference
If play umberto's mission " Ball " if you look carefully at his house there's a Los Santos poster in his house. Los Santos is a city in San Andreas.
Own all the empires
When you are free in the game at some point you will have to defend your empires and take over new ones so this is what i did. I got the rhino cheat which you will find somewhere on the list and defended my empires like that and also took over new ones by using the rocket launch to smash the rival's Empires

swim/run for ever
Start tapping "x" and swim for ever. Its good when you have to get in a boat. One bad thing is that it slows you down by 5% so that's a good price to pay for infinite swimming....oh and you can do the same with running.
Tip - "hosing the hoes"
In the mission, "hosing the hoes", if you fail the mission first time round, keep the fire engine and drive it back to Louise's place to re-start the mission, and when she tells you to go get the fire engine, you will already have it, and you will cut the mission time in half and make things easier for yourself so you can just drive straight to the burning building instead.

Make Police "Give Up" on any wanted level
All that you have to do is start a rampage (passed or not) and pass it and watch you wanted level disappear! This DOES NOT count as "evading" wanted levels for some odd reason. Police simply give up as if you are doing them some sort of service!
Never Wanted
This code DOES NOT do what it says, to spite the fact that it is SUPPOSED to PREVENT you from gaining a wanted level. It DOES, however, make it super easy to avoid police by giving any police bribes the ability to clear ANY wanted level!! This code name should be changed to reflect it's actual effect.
