In the latest OPM, there is an interview with Young Maylay, an up and coming rapper and also the voice for the CJ. Sam Houser said his voice was "powerful". You can pick up the latest OPM in stores now.

"Actually, it was through DJ Pooh. He's been a producer forever...I was introduced, then the Rockstar family picked me up...I didn't know that Dan was listening, and I guess he was getting the idea about me being the voice right then."

-- Extract from interview with Young Maylay, Official Playstation 2 Magazine USA, Issue 86


Thanks to Hellion00 of TheGFCC and GTAGaming for the heads up.

Unlike the mainstream forums, we're gritty, crazy sociopaths. And still approved by Rockstar. Most GTA Sites cater to a younger, softer audience (Zidane?), as opposed to this forum, which caters to bi-polar grandmothers with too many cats (Pyro?).

That doesnt confirm its his voice.

It confirms hes been considered to do it.

It dont say thats why he chose me, it says he got the idea for me doing the voice from there...

Im sure several people have been considered in his voice.

It doesnt show enough to be on the homepage.

I seriously doubt Rockstar would pick an unknown (cant even find him in a google search) to voice one of the biggest characters in videogames history and future, against a certainly allstar cast.

Its not him.

He has been considered, but not selected. Someone like Dre, or a well known west coast rapper will do it.

Get a Slamvan. Take it to Loco Low co. Get Paintjob 2 then paint over it with red, and add all other accessories (Side Skirts, Bullbars etc) and you have yourself the best looking (and one of the best speed and handling) cars in the whole of San Andreas!!! Trust Me :D

Why the hell does he have to be "known" to voice CJ... What B.S.

Well if you were Rockstar would you risk it on an unknown, or follow suite and voice a real actor / gangsta along with a decent cast.

(OFC You will say " Yer, ill pick him" But realistically i really doubt they would)

They have the money to pick an expensive actor or rapper and give the game a more authentic feel, than an "upcoming" rapper, he aint on google, i doubt hes commin up in shit.

Thats why they picked Ray Liotta, he suits the role immensly, and is a renowned actor.

Thats why I think Rockstar will follow suite, and pick an O.G. West coast rapper who was (and probably still is) big, especially in the early - mid nintees.

Like Dr. Dre, Ice Cube etc. Recognised people.

Just my thoughts

i googled Young Maylay, and didn't find much just a few qutoes:

Iterview with Deeyah:

DJ Dev: Are there any guest vocalists on the album?

Deeyah: There are a couple of guest vocalists, but I have tried to limit it to people that are up and coming. Like Young Maylay, who is a really dope west coast MC rhymes on a couple of my tracks.


from westcoast2k.net:

King T's 5th album "yet untitled" is already being hailed as a classic and his best yet by those that have heard it. The new album is set to be released 2004 on Ruthless Records. Tracks like "Twista Corna" featuring WC, "Blow Trees" feat. LV, "We Do It Eazy" feat. Bone Thugs, and tracks with Xzibit, Tha Liks, Threat, Ms. Toi, a hot newcomer named Young Maylay

EDIT damn, my internet got screwed sry for double post sad.gif

Also the quote, do you agree with me when i say that doesn't confirm he is voiceing CJ. It just confirms that he has been thought of ect

Hes an "upcoming" or "hot new" rapper. Apparantly.

Really hes currently a nobody who probably knows some famous people.

Rockstar has said that they will get a person who fits the role and they wont get someone who is famous just because they are famous. So, yes, they will risk it all, and some of you havent even heard his voice yet and you sayin "aw, why would rockstar pick him?" and shit. fuck, when you hear him speak, you'll know why Rockstar have picked him, and yes, Blitz, hes Carl Johnson. I dont know why OPM would interview someone who was just being considered for a role. rolleyes.gif

Someone who fits the role would be an O.G. whos returned to the game

Like... Dre.

If he was confirmed

The magazine would say. Interview with the voice of CJ etc

Hes been considered and tested etc, thats it.

What you think the voice matters, you think the voice sells the game? Your acting like if the voice of CJ is an unknown person that R* is going to risk messing up with the whole game. He is the voice of CJ, get OPM and read it.

I reckon it's great they've picked a young unknown rapper. It really suits the CJ role more than a big shot like ice cube, plus can u imagine ice cubes voice in CJ? It would just sound daft. You're pickin sayin that cause he's unknown he must be rubbish when you ain't even heard his voice, it might be the best voice for the role.

I think it's a great idea. This way, we have no idea what he's going to sound like. When they said Ray Liotta would do the voice for Tommy, that was great, but I'd like to be suprised. Anyway, Rockstar is a kickass company who basically never do anything wrong. I'm sure that Young Maylay will be a great choice and it'll fit into the game seamlessly. biggrin.gif
