―GTA V Website.

The Lowdown 91.1 is a radio station that plays funk, soul and jazz music featured in Grand Theft Auto V. 'Mama G' Pam Grier is the radio DJ. The radio station appears to be based on Master Sounds 98.3, a radio station from GTA San Andreas that plays the same type as music as this does. 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.

Deleted Songs

GTA V's trackID.gxt2 database reveals more songs were planned to appear on the station but were not included in the final version.

Trivia

LowDownBeta

Possibly the beta logo on a billboard down the Los Santos Freeway

  • In game, "Cruisin'" is incorrectly credited to Smokey Robinson and The Miracles. Smokey split from the Miracles in 1972 and "Crusin'" was released in 1979. The digital game manual credits the song solely to Smokey Robinson. This has been corrected with the 1.10 update.
    • Also whenever "Crusin'" comes on, Mama G. tends to announce the song as "Oh what you do to me." This could mean that another song was meant to appear in its place.
  • There appears to be another version of the logo, that may be the beta, which keeps the same design but uses a different color palette.
  • One of the station's jingles features the opening interjection of "Le Freak" by Chic.
  • This is the station played in Michael's mansion and at the Del Perro Pier. However, the DJ cannot be heard and the song "Ooh Child" has no trumpets, unlike the version heard in a vehicle.
  • This is possibly one of Amanda De Santa's favorite radio station, as it is the defaut station whenever the player enters her Sentinel. (alongside the Space 103.2).
  • Lowdown FM is most likely based on K-EARTH, which is a station in Los Angeles that plays classic soul much like the in-game station.
  • This is the third time a War song appears in a GTA game. The first time was in GTA San Andreas when "Lowrider" was featured on Master Sounds 98.3 and the second was in Grand Theft Auto IV when "Galaxy" was featured on IF99.
