The song will appear in Grand Theft Auto Online‘s upcoming Cayo Perica Heist update.
And while they’ll each have music featured on in-game stations from Flying Lotus and Giles Peterson, respectively, a new collaboration, “The Chocolate Conquistadors,” is also slated for a GTAO sequence. Released today, the song finds DOOM threading a sunny and upbeat funk-fueled vamp from the band with bilingual stream-of-mindfulness bars. And it’s a welcomed reunion of the rapper and band, following their previous collaboration on “Ray Gun,” a song from Sour Soul, the band’s 2015 joint album with Ghostface Killah.
Grand Theft Auto’s much-anticipated Cayo Perica Heist update is the latest build-out of a still-blooming multiplayer component of the wildly-successful 2013 video game. The expansion arrives on December 15th with new missions set on an island, along with three new radio stations; Kult FM, hosted by Julian Casablancas, Still Slipping Los Santos, hosted by Joy Orbison, and The Music Locker, named after a new club and virtual social space in the game that will feature rotating DJ sets from Moodymann, Keinemusik, Palms Trax, and others. Additionally, FlyLo and Peterson’s long-running stations are getting updated with new mixes. Peterson’s Worldwide FM will feature songs from Kamasi Washington, BBNG, Khruangbin, and more, while FlyLo FM will feature a guest host in Tierra Whack, as well as songs from DOOM, Madlib, and new material from the producer and namesake host himself.
