The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos, the outstanding collection of brand new tracks with top-flight collaborators created for and inspired by the world of GTAV, is available now via iTunes, and on CD.
Take a look at the video below to hear Alchemist, Oh No and some of the guest artists discuss the creation of the album.
Here’s what some of the music press have been saying about the singles released from 'Welcome To Los Santos' so far:
Freddie Gibbs and Curren$y, “Fetti”"Yet another gem from the record’s star-studded tracklist” – XXL“Phenomenal” – Okayplayer
MNDR Feat. Killer Mike, “Lock & Load”“MNDR slowly delivers piercing gunplay over drums with clothes-shaking knock and slow-winding synth bass. Killer Mike comes through and empties the clip with a sixteen that murders everything — literally and figuratively.” – Stereogum (Named one 5 best songs of the week)“Mixes MNDR’s dreamy vocals with Mike’s expertly composed and spat verses” – SPIN“At once brazen and ethereal, the track capitalizes on both artists’ strengths. Here, like a tag team bringing the heat, the Atlanta MC spits pulverizing rhymes while MNDR weaves a glowing, dreamlike backdrop.” – Consequence of Sound
E-40 – “California” feat. Dam-Funk & Ariel Pink“The legendary Bay Area rapper E-40 going head-to-head with lackadaisical LA pop weirdo Ariel Pink on “California” — somehow they balance each other perfectly.” – Stereogum
If you’re playing GTAV on PC, tune your radio to “The Lab” to hear the album as a full-blown station, complete with call-ins from the album’s guest artists and featuring Alchemist and Oh No as your science-dropping hosts, “Dr No and the Chemical Bro.”Previously:Welcome To Los Santos Album Now Available to Pre-Order

GTAV Soundtrack Interviews and Details... Plus "Sleepwalking" by The Chain Gang of 1974 from the Official Trailer
In support of this week’s worldwide release of Grand Theft Auto V, we’ve got a special pair of totally free companion apps that will be available for download starting today to enhance and aid your game experience.
Grand Theft Auto: iFruit – featuring Los Santos Customs and Chop the Dog
The free iFruit mobile app hooks directly into your Grand Theft Auto V experience featuring:
Los Santos Customs - The Los Santos Customs app offers players the freedom to create their ultimate vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V from anywhere. At the bar, on the beach, on the toilet. This is the future, we’re almost sure of it. You can even create and reserve custom license plates for both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online – order your personalized plates before they’re gone! Also choose from paint jobs, window tints, smoke colors, wheels, hoods and spoilers. Upgrade your engine, brakes, exhaust, suspension, and accessorize with new lights, horns, tires and body armor. Place your order on-the-go and find it waiting for you in the garage the next time you play Grand Theft Auto V, or send your order in while playing and get a call from your local mechanic to swing by. Everybody’s had some work done in Los Santos, so don’t let your ride be the exception to the rule.
Chop the Dog - Depth of content, high production values, defecation. It’s the app that has it all. Because who doesn’t love tending to a virtual pet? Chop is Franklin’s canine sidekick in Grand Theft Auto V. Look after him well in the Chop the Dog app and you will reap the benefits when playing as Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V. Pet him, feed and water him, play fetch and tug-of-war, teach him tricks. Too much or too little of an activity, however, will cause Chop to become unhappy, and nobody likes an unhappy Rottweiler. Take Chop on walks to give him a chance to work off last night’s steak and Piswasser and to mark his turf in the hood - defending his ladies, fending off gang members and even protecting the beach babes of Los Santos from unsightly tan lines by removing their bikinis.
Grand Theft Auto V: The Manual
As this is the biggest Grand Theft Auto game to date, we literally couldn’t fit everything into an old fashioned style printed booklet anymore so instead we have taken the tradition of the classic GTA game manual into the digital era properly and have created for you a massive over-100-page free digital app for smartphones, tablets as well as desktops called Grand Theft Auto V: The Manual. The official manual app has everything from essential and practical Game Controls, Features and Credits info to a tour through the activities and local shops and brands in the game – and best yet, a special digital version of the game map to zoom in and explore with an interactive legend to browse neighborhoods and points of interest all over the entire world of Los Santos and Blaine County.
Both of these free digital apps will be available for download beginning today, and we will update this post with more information and download links as they become available throughout the week for other platforms and devices.
The iFruit Mobile Application
Now available for iOS devices at the App Store, for Android devices via Google Play, for Windows Phone and for PlayStation Vita.

With that in mind, from now until next Tuesday July 30th, you can grab the mobile versions of Vice City, GTAIII, Chinatown Wars for the special price of just $2.99* each and get Max Payne for $1.99*.
