Robert DeNegro is a ex-gangster and rap artist who is mentioned in a news segment on Lithium FM in Grand Theft Auto 2. He was secretly admitted to hospital amid claims that his skin couldn't cope with the amount of metal piercings he had adorned his body with. DeNegro had denied claims he had a piercing problem.
Robert De Negro is apparently a real-life rap artist as, according to the game credits, he contributed vocals to two songs on the soundtrack (Negro Vs. Conner's "Showin' Me Love" and E=MC Good Times' "Jacking In Hilltown"). His name is a play on the actor Robert De Niro and the term negro, a similar word, as a meaning, to "Nigger".
