I know there will be a good amount of NYC artists which means :
Hip-Hop (WU-TANG CLAN!!, Biggie, Eric B & Rakim, Afrika Bambaata, Mobb Deep KRS-One "WHOO-WHOO! That's the sound of da police!") New York created Hip-Hop so I'm sure there will be multiple stations just like in SA
Punk\Rock (the Ramones, Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground) I'd love to run from the cops to Sonic Youth's Bull in the Heather. Joey Ramone has a street named after him in the Bowery, there WILL be at least one Ramones track.
Jazz (John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker) New York is the Jazz Capital of the World so I expect to hear some, especially from the civil rights era or some of Miles' electric stuff like 'On the Corner'.
Salsa\Latin (Fania Records-Willie Colon, Hector Lavoe) Salsa was also created in NYC so there has to be a Latin station no question.
I trust R* wholeheartedly with the soundtrack and I like the fact that instead of limiting it to music from a certain time period, the music chosen will reflect the feeling of NYC.
