Robert DeNegro (real name Johnny Wilson), is apparently a real-life rap artist as, according to the game credits, he contributed vocals to two songs on the soundtrack (Negro Vs. Conner's "Showin' Me Love" and E=MC Good Times' "Jacking In Hilltown", all on KREZ). Three songs on the Grand Theft Auto 1 soundtrack (Da Shootaz's "Grand Theft Auto", Slumpussy's "This Life", and CCC Featuring Robert DeNegro's "Blow Your Console", all on N-CT FM). Also well as one song on the Grand Theft Auto III soundtrack (Da Shootaz's "Grand Theft Auto", heard on Lips 106). His name is a play on the actor Robert De Niro and the term "negro" (meaning 'dark' in Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish, also a term referring to black people). He also voiced a Beatbox in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
