Busta Rhymes Gets Lost, Damned

New music to debut in GTA IV expansion.

It might not immediately fit with the biker motif of Grand Theft Auto IV's Lost and Damned expansion, but then the ability to play a number of different radio stations while you're doing dirt is one of the GTA series' many charms. Rockstar has announced that along with the new missions and game content in its upcoming GTA episode, Lost & Damned will also feature new music. Five of the game's radio stations will see new updates, and the rap station will feature a new, as-yet-unheard song from Busta Rhymes called "Conglomerate."

Funkmaster Flex will also take a short break from "dropping a bomb on them" and "rewinding the first verse of a song so you can hear it again while loud sirens ensure that you can't really hear it to begin with" to appear on the game's rap station as a DJ. He'll also interview Busta Rhymes at some point during this new content.

In case you can't wait for the 17th to see/hear Busta Rhymes being interviewed, here's a clip of Bussa-Buss on Tim Westwood. They all do the Arab Money dance and look silly as hell.

It's good to hear that the Radio Stations are getting new songs as I really didn't like most of them in GTAIV. I stuck to talk stations really.

I guess this is neat....probably won't be listening to this station a whole lot though.

I've heard Conglomerate before... it's on RealTalkNY or some other rap website... it's ok I guess. I like the beat but Busta should really stop rapping imo.

Westwood is such a Wasteman but he does support alot of the UK grime Artist on his show.

Yusss, radio is such an awesome part of GTA IV.

Edited by MrKlorox

I had my hopes up for the new radio expansions since a Sepultura song played in the first TLAD trailer. But after hearing some of the stuff on the rest of the trailers, it isn't looking too good for us metallers.

The rap stations seem to be getting the best treatment with all sorts of original programming, whereas the closest thing to a metal-like station in the game (LCHC) is filled with ear piercing punk music. Bleh!

Great, I didn't even think about the music when I heard about the DLC.  It just keeps looking better and better.

We gettin Arab Money! We gettin Arab Money!

I've already got that track, it was leaked awhile ago :( Its got a good beat but needs less other rappers and more busta

Busta Bust aint posin' for the cameras. He's not afraid to RIP that arab money dance UP, son!

Posted by JoblessTerence

Wait, is he remixing MOP's Ante Up or Arab's song?

Posted by SaucySala

You don't mess with Busta-Bus!

Posted by zityz

Not a huge fan of rap and hip-hop but Busta is awesome to listen to.

Posted by RHCPfan24

Haha, Busta. There is an appeal to him after all.

Westwood is a fucking joke! What with his knife and fork haircut and his forced gangsta attitude. I often wonder if he speaks to his mother in that accent when he's round for Sunday dinner. 'Yo, mumz, pass the mint sauce - dis lamb needs some fresh flavourz!'



As for Busta, he does nothing for me. At the risk of sounding like an elitist twat, the majority of modern mainstream Hip Hop is the reason many think all Hip Hop is solely about guns, bitches and bling. It's a damn shame most people won't actually dig a bit deeper and discover some of the really good stuff outside of Clear Channel playlists. Rant over.

Damn, I was hoping for updates to the Talk Radio stations. They're not very long in GTA IV. I know there's more than ever before, but even so.

Another solid updated reason for me to not get this content.(not that any would change it at this point)

Posted by Theresonlyone

I wonder if everyone knows that Tim Westwood is a 50yo Middle class white guy whose dad is a Bishop in the Church of England...

Buster Rhymes is a sell out and has a gay uncle. he has (what we call in the business) "fell off"

Screw that shit.  I'm gonna bang Screw, Z-Ro, and Trae,

Haha, safe that you're looking out for the Westwood Jeff.
