Rounding out our reveals of the exclusive in-game radio station contributors to Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP - is one of the hottest producers in hip-hop today, DJ Khalil. While he's been producing respected underground bangers since 2000 for the likes of Ras Kass, Bishop Lamont, and 50 - Khalil has become one of the go-to producers in the past few years for his signature heavy, head-nodding basslines and dark, serious synths.

He's made major waves in '09 by producing standout tracks for some of this year's biggest rap albums and artists, like Slaughterhouse (the lead single "The One" and the album cut favorite "Cuckoo"), Fabolous ("Imma Do It", "Never Let It Go", and "What It Look Like") and Drake ("Fear").

His radio station mix in Chinatown Wars PSP features new and exclusive beats debuting for the first time, as well as some of his finest recent instrumentals. Check out a first audio preview above.

Reviews are starting to appear for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP, available throughout North America today, and across Europe this Friday October 23.

The critical response thus far?

A perfect 10/10 from Play Magazine, which called the game "The new best hand-held title of the year."

Another 10/10 from "The game boasts some of the most inventive missions in GTA's history...GTA: Chinatown Wars is my favourite handheld game of all time."

Eurogamer deliver a 9/10 and highlight the upgrades made in the transition to PSP: "Not only are the textures much higher-resolution throughout the world, but the once-squashed comic cells used for the text-based story sequences look beautiful spread across the PSP screen."

Gamepro's 4.5/5 comes with a glowing recommendation: "Chinatown Wars remains an absolute blast from start to finish with plenty of trademark Liberty City locales ripe for exploration... If you're looking for a good action adventure experience that harkens back to the more cartoony Grand Theft Auto days, then Chinatown Wars is certainly worth the investment."

Now Gamer scored the game a 9.5/10, stating "GTA: Chinatown Wars on PSP is bigger, looks better and arguably offers the definitive handheld GTA experience. If you’re a fan of the series, you won’t want to miss it...Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars has perfectly translated to the PSP and is a must-have game."

Stay tuned for more reviews throughout the week as they happen
