The voice heard on Grand Theft Auto V's FlyLo FM radio may be familiar to many Chicagoans, it's the voice of comedian Hannibal Buress. Hannibal Buress co-stars on Cartoon Network's 'The Eric Andre Show' as well as in the new Nike and Foot Locker commercial featuring Kevin Durant.
How did Buress end up getting a spot on Grand Theft Auto radio? Simple, he met rapper and producer Flying Lotus at 'The Eric Andre Show Live' in Chicago last year. Apparently Flying Lotus is a big comedy fan.
According to Buress, Flying Lotus told him he "had a station on GTA V and that he wanted him to do something on it. We decided it would be sort of a man on the street type thing".
Buress is "excited to have a small part in the game. It's an amazing game and I love video games, so it's cool to play it and have my voice come up".
The game also features singer B.J. the Chicago Kid. His song 'Smoke and Ride' can be heard on the Radio Los Santos station.
