When Rampage were offered a chance to interview the most famous voice from the Grand Theft Auto series they obviously jumped at the chance. (Well not literally, can you imagine Mike jumping, hilarious!)

So we went off to a plush recording studio somewhere in the West End of London, to meet a very charming Lazlow Jones.

Now in case you're one of the minority people that don't know anything about GTA. Lazlow Jones is a writer, producer, director and talk show host based in New York City, USA. He was the host of Technofile, a radio show syndicated on more than 100 radio stations in America as well as Sirius XM Satellite Radio. This is big business in the states, people subscribe just to hear Lazlow talk. (Not sure if that could happen with Rampage, mixing maybe, but talking hmmmm...).

Once we met him, it wasn't hard to tell why he's so popular in the radio, he had the guys in stitches (A lot of which couldn't be broadcasted). Lets just say he doesn't hold back and whilst very funny, the producer and I would actually like to stay employed! Not only is he a very funny man, but also true pro at this talk host business.

You may have heard him on Rampage earlier today speaking about the new game 'Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City.' There was so much to say about this massive series, not to mention Wretch 32 & Ace (wanna be gangsta's) playing this game with a critical reviewers eye.

So what you didn't hear on the show today, we have posted here, this should put a smile on your face, it's even funnier if you knew how serious Mike & T were taking this....

Firstly the guys in the light of one of the titles of the Grand Theft Autio iV being called 'The Ballad of Gay Tony'. They wanted to find out just how strong Lazlow's ballad game was. so they played Lazlow some big ballads, and he had to guess what each song was, quite straight forward nothing too hard right? Take a listen to this..

So after the guys put Lazlow through his paces, he decided to flipped the script and put them to the test. With all their big talk he wanted to see just how much of a gamer they really are. Take a listen to this and see just how strong their gaming knowledge really is. (See if you guys know the answers as well).

Ok so picture the scene now the studio is getting slightly warm, Mike & T have been put through their paces and challenged to their limits, they take a sip of water to wet the pallet for their next challenge. Which is....Who can talk the longest about gaming in one long breathe? (should be a walk in the park for 3 DJ's that LOVE chatting non stop right?).

I love this audio, great idea producer Buki, personally I think we should do this in all Rampage's interviews.... in fact dunno why we didn't think if it sooner!
