MTV has uncovered some details on the radio stations that will be featured in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned. In addition to the new story and gameplay elements the Xbox 360 expansion offers, The Lost and Damned will have new DJs, songs, and musicians. MTV reported:
"Hip-hop station the Beat 102.7 is gaining a new show of popular hip-hop DJed by Funkmaster Flex and headlined by two new Busta Rhymes tracks. One of them, 'The Conglomerate,' features Young Jeezy and Jadakiss. The Beat is also getting a show DJed by Statik Selektah, featuring all hip-hop recorded and mixed specifically for GTA. One of the headliners there is Freeway, who told MTV News that Selektah asked him to get into the game. Liberty City Hardcore is gaining a new death-metal show DJed by Max Cavalera of Sepultura and Soulfly fame. Among the artists featured will be Bathory. Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 is getting new rock songs, with Iggy Pop returning as the DJ. Radio Broker, the indie-rock station DJed by Juliette Lewis, is also getting new music."
It's impressive that Rockstar took the time and spent the money to give The Lost and Damned its own unique soundtrack. Acquiring new songs and recording VO for celebrities is not cheap. When you consider that all this effort and money was for downloadable content, it's even more noteworthy.
