Radio Los Santos is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It plays wp:West Coast hip hop from the late 1980s and early 1990s - primarily the "Gangsta Rap" sub-genre. The station, evidently, broadcasts from Los Santos. This station was released in a joint album with Playback FM as part of the 8-Disc soundtrack. The station also includes references to "carjacking on the rise", Los Santos gang violence, and the Los Santos drug/crack problem - being that these activities play a key element of the gameplay and the story. This is the favorite radio station of the Grove Street Families and Ryder. The station DJ is Julio G. Rapper B-Real from Cypress Hill makes an appearance on the station and so does Madd Dogg who is voiced by Ice T. Other appearances on the radio station includes OG Loc and Big Smoke once the first chapter (Los Santos missions) has been completed.

Trivia

  • Radio Los Santos may be based on real life L.A. radio stations 105.9 Power 106 and 93.5 KDAY; the latter more likely as Julio G was a former DJ on the station.
  • During Eazy-E's song, Julio mentions Compton instead of its in-game fictional counterpart Ganton.
  • During 2Pac's song, Julio sometimes mentions that he is nervous for playing the song because of it's heavy use of the word "fuck" along with other cuss words (despite that most of the other songs heavily use expletives) and he'll likely get a fine for playing it.
  • This radio station can be heard in any wardrobe in safehouses and also in any mod garage. (If the player consistently listens to it)
  • Radio Los Santos is the default radio station in the Greenwood.
    • However, Sweet's Greenwood does not play Radio Los Santos when entered.
