Grand Theft Auto V Soundtrack Features Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tyler, the Creator + More
With the release of ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ only a few weeks away, the anticipation for the video game continues to build as trailers show it will be a game unlike no other. This version of the game takes place back at Los Santos (which simulates Los Angeles), so the accompanying soundtrack will be more of a West Coast vibe.
According to soundtrack producer Ivan Pavlovich, he tells Rolling Stone that there will be “15 radio stations, two talk radio stations and 240 licensed songs” featured in the video game. Out of those numbers, there are two hip-hop stations.
As players ride around Los Santos, they can hear the sounds of DJ Pooh as he hosts the West Coast Classics station. The tracklisting isn’t out yet, but with Pooh going to Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg‘s house to grab some music, it’s definitely going to keep you reminiscing as they bring back some “true gems.”
Recent leaks have shown that the game includes classics such as, Too $hort‘s ‘So You Want to Be a Gangster,’ Dr. Dre’s ‘The Next Episode,’ Warren G & Nate Dogg’s ‘Regulate’ and Snoop Dogg’s ‘Gin N Juice.’
Don’t worry, the team over at ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ know they can’t include a radio station soundtrack without the self proclaimed “King of New York” himself Kendrick Lamar, who is rumored to have his song ‘A.D.H.D.’ included on Radio Los Santos.
If you get tired of hip hop, the producers have a soul station and funk station ready to blow your speakers out as well. According to Pavlovich, “Pam [Grier] is the host of a soul station, focusing a little bit on low rider classics.” he said. “Bootsy Collins is the host of an Eighties boogie-funk station.”
‘Grand Theft Auto V’ is available in stores Sept. 17.
