Bringing Jackal Tapes to Reuben will net you two achievements/trophies, "Investigative Reporter" and "Pulitzer material".
Tapes by location Edit
You will get the first tape from Reuben Oluwagembi the first time you visit Mike's Bar. In addition to the first tape, eight others are spread throughout Leboa-Sako. These tapes can usually be found sitting next to or on top of a larger object. In most cases, they’re next to a wrecked vehicle. The tapes are all numbered and contain a specific topic discussed by Reuben and the Jackal. The tapes are gathered in the same order regardless of where you pick them up. For example, the first tape you grab is Smuggling, followed by Circulation, Economics, and so on.
Here’s a list of the tapes available in Leboa-Sako:

After the final patch for the game many players began encountering a glitch where all tapes after #10 (Stealing Boots) would play the same thing. The glitch seems to only affect tapes gathered in the southern map, where as the northern tapes would be fine. The glitch, however, does not affect the collecting of associated Achievements/Trophies.
