Never ones to shy away from controversy, it's come out that Rockstar hired real life gangsters to provide voices for some of the characters.

DJ Laslow Jones let it slip when he was talking to WGN Radio in Chicago, stating: "We get these guys in to record the gang characters because we don't want a goofy LA actor who went to a fancy school trying to be a hard gang member. There's nothing worse than that, so just go find the real terrifying people and say 'can you come in here please?"

Rockstar have been known to bait the US and UK's right wing media in the past; could this just be another genius (albeit extremely cynical) attempt to drum up column inches ahead of the game's September 17th release?
