The game Grand Theft Auto V was released in September 2013, but six years on it’s still going strong, having sold more than 115m copies across various consoles, and with a popular online mode extending its lifespan. It’s also still making musical waves, with the latest example being a new station for the game’s in-car radio.

Artist Danny Brown will be the host of ‘iFruit Radio’ when it appears in the next update to Grand Theft Auto Online, which goes live on 12 December. British rapper Skepta will be a special guest, while tracks from the likes of Megan Thee Stallion ft DaBaby, Slowthai, Burna Boy, Travis Scott and J Hus will be on the playlist. The station will also be available in the game’s (non-online) story mode.

Veteran supervisor Deborah Mannis-Gardner was responsible for clearing the music for inclusion in the station, as she has been for music across many of publisher Rockstar Games’ titles.
