  • E.C.'s Beatz is a parody of the real life radio station WQHT, better known as Hot 97, a contemporary hip-hop and rap station in New York City. Both stations also share the same dial numbers (97.1), broadcast from the same area (SoLo, Malstephen's real life counterpart is SoHo, Manhattan), and have Eric Edwards as their imaging voice.
  • This is Knuckles' favorite radio station, and he sometimes makes very positive comments about Angela.
    • Funnily enough, Knuckles' voice actor (Travis Willingham) is married to Angela's voice actress (Laura Bailey) in real life.
  • This is Vanilla's least favorite radio station.
  • This is one of the default stations in Knuckles' vehicles, with the other being Empire City's Classics.
  • This is one of two radio stations in Sonic Adventure 3 that is a parody of a real life radio station, with the other being Blue-Pop Tunes.
  • Kanye West is the only artist on the playlist who is not an east coast rapper, being from Chicago, Illinois in real life, therefore making him a midwest rapper.
    • In addition, Freeway is the only remaining artist not from New York City in real life, rather being from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • The song "Turn It Up" is incorrectly credited solely to Papoose on the radio station wheel and in all cars' radio screens in first-person driving. However, DJ Premier is still credited by Angela and in the game's credits. The song also plays in the game's launch trailer.
