I'd say it was quite expensive. IV seems like the most cheap game when it comes to soundtracks. It had a lot of songs I had never heard of before. (if we don't consider LCS/GTA III) 

What's the problem with discovering new music? Do we seriously need every game to be full of the same hits we listen everywhere?

Nothing wrong. I actually quite enjoy it. Just that it obviously costs less and money was what we were talking about.

If it's expensive to license, you won't hear it anymore. GTA V's soundtrack must have been so, so cheap compared to Vice City or San Andreas. All the truly big hits in there were all over 20 years old, and probably going for budget rates or as a package deal. The rest was a bunch of indie stuff, and some of those artists don't even have a real EP out, let alone an album.

 

That's not to say any of it was bad music (except maybe East Los FM). I personally enjoyed a hell of a lot of it, especially the original score and Vinewood Boulevard Radio. But it is all noticeably cheap.

Good point, having old music is always a win win

And you're the authority on popular music now? Just because you never heard it doesn't mean it was never popular/goes cheaper.

I don't think that's what he's trying to say, but rather that less mainstream music = cheaper licences. I'm almost sure Vladivostok FM was the cheapest of them all.

Cheapest to license, yet they still removed all but one song from the entire station and replaced them with garbage? Unless it was too difficult to renew the licenses for the tracks from Russian record labels and they just didn't bother with it.

My guess is that those Russian record labels probably don't exist anymore or got new numbers and R* tried to call them to no success.

Probably because of licensing/costs issues.

Money maybe. Whoever's in charge of Biggie's music probably charges an arm and a leg to licence it

Basically this. Same reason R* ended the licensing on IV and specifically Valdistock FM. It's unnecessary money out of their pockets. I doubt that it never went through their heads to add biggies tracks, but it probably would cost them a f*ck ton to licence it.

At least they used the song they sampled in Big Poppa in San Andreas.

 

 

I wish this was in IV

Because D.Piddy owns Biggie and if R* obtained songs from him, that would be big trouble in Algonquin Chinatown all over again! Kind of how like new artists found by Piddy has now turned into religion. I feel like getting licences for Biggie's songs, even in a time frame shorter than a DLC period, would have Piddy somehow work his way to converting Grand Theft Auto being made by EA Games from now on. Coincidence? I think not!

lol was being a random sh*tposter, 50 cent did a rambling worse than my previous post years back on d.piddy about how he's satan and converted all his hip hop artists like ma$$$e into religion. if he makes wind that r* is using their license to feature a couple biggie songs, then he'll persuade rockstar to hand gta to ea games lol
