'''Radio Los Santos''' is a [[Radio Stations in GTA San Andreas|radio station]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]. It plays [[wp:West Coast hip hop|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.

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.

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.
