- ―GTA V Website.
The Lowdown 91.1 is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto V. The station plays funk, soul and disco and is hosted by Pam Grier. Lowdown may also be based on KHHT Hot 92.3 FM, a well-known L.A. radio station that plays soul, funk, and oldies. Space 103.2 may also be based on Hot 92 as well since both stations play funk music.

- Before the 1.10 update, "Cruisin'" was incorrectly credited ingame to Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, despite the fact that Robinson split from the Miracles in 1972, seven years before the song was released. The digital manual, however, had always credited "Cruisin'" sole to Smokey Robinson. It is entirely possible that another song was meant to appear in its place altogether, as the DJ oftens introduces the song by saying "Oh what you do to me".
- There appears to be another version of the logo (which was possibly the beta logo), which sometimes appears on billboards. The logo has the same design but uses a different color palette.
- One of the station's jingles features the opening interjection of "Le Freak" by Chic.
- Songs from this station play inside Michael's mansion and at the Del Perro Pier. However, the trumpets featured on "Ooh Child" cannot be heard.
- This is possibly one of Amanda De Santa's favorite radio stations, as it is the default station whenever the player enters her Sentinel (alongside Space 103.2).
- The beat from El Chicano - Viva Tirado is sampled in the song La Raza by Kid Frost featured on Radio Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
- When Michael & Franklin escape the Triads in Fresh Meat, the radio in the car will be tuned in to Lowdown FM and the track "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by the Undisputed Truth will always play.
- When Mama G says "If you want something to play with, go find yourself a toy", this is a reference to another Aaron Neville song "Tell It Like It Is".
