Who the hell is this guy? I can't even find any images of him on Google to compare with that of CJ. And seriously, how can you not hear about a game like San Andreas and stay in the dark especially when the game's story supposedly revolves around your own real life story? I'm not entirely falsifying his claims but it could very well be a structured scam to cough out money from Rockstar. He doesn't really stand a chance of claiming 25% of the game's total profits, though.

Here is a pic of him. What a tool. A young black man grows up in a tough neighborhood committing crimes and as a teenager and would ride around on a bike in a gang? That must be him.

He looks more like Cesar Vialpando, to be honest.

Yeah but this one was first and seems like a more appropriate thread location. But it's all good.

Agreed about the Cesar thang btw.

Here, Here. biggrin.gif Years after all the whoop-laa and he claims he never heard of the game.
bored.gif I think IF he was forced to interview for two hours, he waited for the other lawsuit to be finish, for fear he would be sly.gif included in it. But still, everybody knows 'they' all look alike...
dozingoff.gif I agree he could have been Caesar more than CJ.
that_guy2057_evilgrin.gif Ego can make him feel like CJ though.

I'm pretty sure there are thousands, if not millions, of other people who can say CJ resembles them.

Ha never heard of him. He's pretty stupid for not having read the disclaimer at the beginning of the game. There's no chance he can win.
