Tracklist Edit

GTA IVEdit

DJ Mister Cee (aka The Finisher), a DJ who has worked with prestigious classic artists like the late The Notorious B.I.G. and Big Daddy Kane. He is a personality of Hot 97, a very famous New York radio station that The Beat 102.7 is meant to parody.

DJ Green Lantern (aka The Evil Genius), a New York DJ who began work with Shady/G-Unit Records in 2002, until he and 50 Cent had a falling out in 2005. He has since then worked with Def Jam (until 2007) and independently with most of the rappers heard on his segment. Like many of his mixtapes, his segment is referred to as "Invasion". Other than Busta Rhymes, Styles P, and Maino, this segment features more underground rappers. Unlike a small portion of DJ Mister Cee's segments, all the songs in this segment were originally made for the game.

  • Styles P - "What's the Problem" (2008)
  • Uncle Murda - "Anybody Can Get It" (2008)
  • Qadir - "Nickname" (2008)
  • Busta Rhymes - "Where's My Money" (2008)

  • Red Cafe - "Stick'm" (2008)
  • Tru Life - "Wet 'Em Up" (2008)
  • Johnny Polygon - "Price on Your Head" (2008)

Episodes From Liberty CityEdit

DJ: Funkmaster Flex, an extremely prominent Hip-Hop and Reggae DJ. Since 1994, he has appeared on both television (Yo! MTV Raps), radio (Hot 97, which The Beat 102.7 is meant to parody) and mixtapes (60 Minutes of Funk) to promote music. He has recently expanded to the custom car subculture, with several television shows and a line of footwear.

Flex is given his own segment on The Beat, which features more Top 40/Pop-Rap songs and club hits which most had a heavy use for the popular yet controversial practice of auto tune which was a music trend starting from 2008 until early 2010. This segment playlist consists of:

Interlude: As read in the TLAD credits, the song "Auto Tune" is not attached to Flex or Statik's segments on the station, only referred to as "Interlude."

DJ: Statik Selektah, a mixtape DJ who has spun since 2000. Coincidentally, he was first inspired by Funkmaster Flex, as well as DJ Premier (who is heard on The Classics 104.1). He also works in marketing under the company "ShowOff Marketing," attracting major clients from 50 Cent and Diddy's "Vote Or Die" to Reebok and major labels like Virgin, Capitol and Universal. Statik's segment features more underground rappers, most of which he has personally worked with before.
