Grand Theft Auto's Rap & Funk Hits
by Nick Murray | October 11, 2013
The beauty of Grand Theft Auto: not only do you get to crash cars, rob jewelry stores, fly planes and confront (and participate in) organized crime, you get to listen to some of the best of everything, from underground dance to old-time country, while you do so. Seriously, this soundtrack, as broadcast in cars and buildings over the Los Santos airwaves, is so consistently good that it might be the least realistic aspect of the game. Here, we compile the best of the stations playing rap, disco and funk, with occasional surprises from Flying Lotus' spaced-out FlyLo Radio and Lee "Scratch" Perry's Blue Ark FM, plus N.W.A., George McCrae, DJ Quik, Kendrick Lamar and Bootsy Collins all providing the ambiance for your stealing and dealing. A sleeper favorite: Clyde Carson's "Slow Down," a track equally suited for a night out or a high-speed chase.
