How to Upload and Play MP3 Files in GTA 5

Music makes everything better. Starting riots in Los Santos can feel more relaxing and soothing when you have Jazz music playing in the background while you beat up a bunch of thugs. Are you driving away from the cops? Put up some rock music to feel the thrill of the car chase.

Whatever it is that you are up to in Los Santos, being able to play your favorite music files can help make completing missions around Los Santos more enjoyable.

Unfortunately, since GTA 5 is almost a decade old, the in-game playlist and radio music might no longer be up to your tastes. We will try to solve that in this guide.

There are 21 unique radio stations to choose from (plus 3 GTA V Enhanced Edition exclusives), each with various genres for players to enjoy while driving around Los Santos.
