GTA and Vinyl: Together At Last.

Rockstar Games is teaming up with Nas’ imprint Mass Appeal to bring GTA fans all of the original music exclusively available in the game, as well as highlights from the soundtrack in a vinyl titled The Music of Grand Theft Auto V.

Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Waves, Tyler the Creator and many more will feature on the special edition record.

The beastly package will be split into three sets, the first containing original music composed for the game, the second featuring the game’s original score, written by artists such as DJ Shadow and Tangerine Dream, and the final set containing the game’s entire soundtrack.

Available on six LP pressed to coloured vinyl, the box set also includes a bunch of special features, including a full-colour booklet and an exclusive lithograph poster. As well as this, you also pick up a gold USB Drive, posters and artwork for the game.
