The Classics 104.1 is a REAL hip-hop radio station that appears in Grand Theft Auto IV and should be in real-life since it is so good. 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, 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 possibly based on Sirius XM's Backspin.
