K-JAH West. In the land of smog, it's a breath of fresh air. Even though it looks green.
— K-JAH West
From JA to SA. The legendary Marshall Law sound system has moved from Kingston to San Andreas, bringing with them the best in dancehall, raga, reggae and dub. It's one love as Peters and Lawton argue about everything.
GTA San Andreas Website

K-JAH West is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that plays reggae, dub and dancehall music from various decades. The DJs are Marshall Peters and Johnny Lawton (voiced by Lowell Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare respectively) both of whom are of Jamaican descent.

Description[]

K-JAH West takes a relaxed, laid-back attitude, a reflection of the reggae music it airs. It tells its listeners to get out of their cars or stop working, and just go out in the sun and "cool out". It criticizes gangsters, telling them "the guns don't make them look tough" and that "they ain't got base". Although K-JAH West approves of marijuana, it says "winners don't take hard drugs". They also think of themselves as "pilgrims sent from the east bringing a message to the west".

The two hosts, Marshall Peters and Johnny Lawton, speak in thick Jamaican accents, something that can make them hard to understand to players not familiar with the Jamaican dialect. They smoke a lot on air.

They seem to be "vitriolic best buds" as they occasionally bicker on air; through their conversations it is revealed Johnny convinced Marshall to get the pair to move to the west coast to get their music heard on a wider audience; however, Marshall soon found out that the real reason why Johnny wanted to come to San Andreas was to be an actor, and even took acting lessons. This is a recurrent in their dialogue as Marshall frequently taunts Johnny for wanting to become an actor, calling him "Mr. Vinewood" and even telling him "he's no rasta". Johnny replies that Marshall "won't be fighting for revolution if the only thing he does is sitting in the ground, smoking and not making any music". Johnny took acting so seriously that he even went to the extent of quitting smoking, but Marshall soon makes him return to the habit. Although Johnny wants to be more widely known, he still loves reggae, as he says "so you want to be a rudeboy? you don't get it on CSR".

They criticize the Grove Street Families and the Ballas for going to war with each other, and because crack is an "inferior" drug. They also comment about the supposed lights in the desert, which they claim were actually because everyone was "just high".

DJ Gringo and Pat McKay are also featured on this station as the imaging voices.

This station is a West Coast counterpart to the other K-JAH station in Liberty City that is featured in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, which is referenced in their station ident, which says "the best in reggae from Kingston, Brixton and Liberty City all the way to San Andreas".
