What s more, while guest at the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast, he s gone from his tongue and said that Dr. DRE, another known rapper, is working on the GTA 6 soundtrack.
I know that it is in the studio… and that is making a great music, part of your music is connected to the GTA game that is about to leave. So I think that will be the way it will be launched His music, through the GTA video game.
From Rockstar they have refused to pronounce anything about it, so we will have to wait. The truth is that they fit perfectly in the musical style of the saga. Another option would be that remixes a musical theme for the new remastery of GTA 3, San Andreas and Vice City.
