"The mouthiest man in hip-hop, Forth Right MC, brings real hip-hop to the left coast. East Coast sensibilities and Forth Right's unique brand of conspiracy theory lead you in a history lesson."

It plays old school and golden age hip-hop and is hosted by Forth Right MC (voiced by Chuck D.). The soundtrack to this station was released on a joint album with Radio Los Santos, and is also the Varrios Los Aztecas' favorite radio station. This station plays older rap music made exclusively by East Coast artists, in contrast to Radio Los Santos which exclusively plays modern-day West Coast Hip Hop.


Songs marked with * don't appear in the Re-Released versions of the game.


  • Despite the station being said to play "old school" and "golden age" rap, the station's playlist only ranges from 1987 to 1992, almost the same time period as Radio Los Santos' playlist, which ranges from 1988 to 1992.
    • Despite covering similar time spans, Playback FM's music is mostly concentrated on songs from the late 1980's, while Radio Los Santos's playlist primarily focuses on the early 1990's.
  • The radio station's host, Forth Right MC is voiced by the rapper Chuck D. The song "Rebel Without A Pause" by Public Enemy the group which Chuck D is part of, appears on the station.
