The Classics (104.1) is a hip-hop radio station that appears in Grand Theft Auto IV.
It is hosted by hip-hop turntablist DJ Premier. Classics is one of two hip-hop stations in Liberty City, the other being The Beat 102.7 which plays modern day and contemporary hip hop, as opposed to The Classics, which caters to old school hip-hop from the late '80s to mid '90s. It is not present in Episodes From Liberty City. It is possibly based on Sirius XM's Backspin.
