Frank Ocean has his own ‘Grand Theft Auto’ radio station

Because every heist deserves a good banger.


Bryan Rolli


Frank Ocean: chart-topping rapper, internationally published photographer, and now, video game radio host.

On Tuesday, Grand Theft Auto Online released its “Doomsday Heist” update, which includes a new in-game station called blonded Los Santos 97.8, fashioned after Ocean’s own Beats 1 show, blonded RADIO. The Channel Orange star talks and makes musical selections on the station, which includes six of his own songs as well as a savvy blend of modern hip-hop, indie rock, retro funk, and soul.

With this update, the Ocean follows in the footsteps of Flying Lotus, who’s had his own in-game radio station, FlyLo FM, for a few years now.
