GOD. I LOVE THIS SONG.

Always bumpin’ this in Los Santos.

sounds of los santos; my favorite songs from various radio stations around los santos, to save myself the hassle of changing the station to find a good song. [tracks are pulled from the next gen remasters of gta v with “enhanced” radio stations, very heavy on the los santos rock radio/radio mirror park/non-stop pop]

56 songs from the gta v soundtrack, spanning 8 radio stations.

GTA V Next Gen… ‘Radio Los Santos’…

Background

When Muhammad Ali faced George Foreman in 1974’s Rumble in the Jungle, Congolese audience members cheered Ali by shouting, “Ali Bomaye!”, meaning, “Ali, kill him!” in Lingala. The Game would take inspiration from that chant on the chorus of the track. He told Vibe, “I just happened to be watching the movie and didn’t have a song title or arc yet, so I was like fuck it… Ali Bomaye. And that’s how I came up with the hook, really.” He then sent the track to 2 Chainz and Rick Ross to polish off the song with their verses. The song ends with a skit featuring comedian Kevin Hart. In August 2013, “Ali Bomaye” was serviced to DJ’s as a promotional single from his fifth album Jesus Piece.The song was also featured on the soundtrack to the video game Grand Theft Auto V on the Radio Los Santos station, which featured West Coast hip hop.

Trip Soundtrack (Part 1 of Who Knows)

Good evening to my 1 or 2 followers.

One of you asked me about whether there was a soundtrack of the trip to the US I took, and I must say that indeed, there is one. Come with me to revise and remember all those pieces of music while I was there.

Please note that the majority of it came thanks to the Grand Theft Auto games. Between all controversies, I think the radio system is often overlooked (at least here in Mexico), but the truth is that there is some great music in here. I’ll enrich it with a hint on what happened when It came out (on the playlist that is). To save myself from tedium of writing this loooooong soundtrack, I’ll use the GTA stations and the songs that “appeared”
