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.
