The Beat 102.7 is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City that plays contemporary and East Coast hip hop.


The station is hosted by DJ Mister Cee and DJ Green Lantern in GTA IV, and by Funkmaster Flex and Statik Selektah in EFLC. It is based on New York City's hip-hop and R&B radio station, Hot 97. The playlists heavily emphasises the New York City hip-hop scene, with the vast majority of artists coming from that area, though some artists from the South and Midwest are also featured. A portion of the tracklist is exclusive to each stand-alone game, but downloading The Lost and Damned for GTA IV updates the station to include all songs. The Beat 102.7 Studios are located in Star Junction, Algonquin.

It is Armando Torres's, Brucie Kibbutz's, Dwayne Forge's, and Yusuf Amir's favorite radio station. It is also liked by Patrick McReary, Trey Stewart, Bobby Jefferson, and Malc.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Episodes from Liberty City


  • The Beat 102.7 is called "Beat 95" in the game files. This was likely the beta name of the station.
  • At the end of Statik Selektah's mix, he says that Mr. Cee is up next. However if it's heard while playing Episodes From Liberty City, it goes to Funkmaster Flex's mix.
  • Swizz Beatz's "Top Down" is altered in GTA IV compared to the album version.
  • Nas' song "War is Neccessary" was recorded exclusively for GTA IV.
  • In EFLC, Funk Flex mentions a man by the name of Ernesto Asaltacunas, saying he looks ridiculous and "What do you mean how old?". This is a reference to an infamous R. Kelly interview on BET that happened around the time of the game's release.
