I know this will get lost in the madness of the gameplay trailer but I thought I would quickly mention it anyway. I was playing San Andreas to kill time and decided to tweet about my fav voice actor, Young Maylay, and how I would like to see a cameo of some sort in GTA V. He re-tweeted this tweet and then replied.

Yeah, "all the great work"... he did one game and didn't do that great a job at it.

I don't know, I think he was an average actor... But you're right about his rapping. Young Maylay is... *cough*... Best description I can give.

@OP: The guy is butthurt now because he can't have another character. Sh*t, I would be nothing more than privileged to be in a successful video game, period.

His voice acting wasn't horrible, I thought it was pretty good, the rap though...

This.

He actually could appear as a returning character on GTA Online, I think the SE/CE versions let you play as old GTA characters, Niko was the only one confirmed though.

Yea CJ definitely wasn't a memorable character at all for me. Hell even Claude had better voice acting.

You have a point. If classic GTA characters were returning, wouldn't Young Maylay be the voice of CJ? I guess that disconfirms CJ as being one of the characters...

I just realized how bad of a relationship Rockstar has with it's main character voice actors.

I knew about Michael Hollick(Niko) having a dispute with them over pay, and from the tone of Young Maylay's tweet, it looks like Rockstar doesn't care much for him either.

That's probably my one real complaint about Rockstar in general.

There's no way Rockstar isn't gonna get him to record new lines for multiplayer.

Whether you like him or not, he played the biggest role in one of the best PS2 games in history. I believe he did a great job at it. I think y'all are just hating for no reason.

If 3D era protagonists are playable characters online (which I doubt) then he will be in the game simply to do some voice acting for CJ so he has new lines. However, I believe the playable characters from the collectors edition will be the HD protagonists and their close friends like Roman, Brucie, LJ, and the friends from EFLC who I cant remember.

Danny Brown would do a better job as the voice of a regular black dude, listen to some of his stuff where his voice isnt squeaky as hell (I'm thinking of the song DNA).

Either way. CJ is a legend no matter how bad his vocals were.

I don't recall there being anything wrong with his performance, it just wasn't anything special since it's not like it required a great amount of emotional range from him or anything.

I think the online characters will either have no voice at all or they'll have recycled lines. Niko was practically confirmed, and as it has been mentioned, Michael Hollick (Niko's VA) had some trouble with R*, wich "disconfirms" his work for V's online.

New voice actors, I suppose? It isn't impossible... ph34r.gif
Didn't the characters from Red Dead Revolver have different voice actors in Red Dead Redemption. I believe Jack Swift's voice changed.

Or recycled lines, as you have said.

I highly doubt the presence of new VAs. Imagine all the bitching from the players.

He acted as CJ, correct? Automatic legend. If it wasn't for GTA SA there would probably be little to no hype for GTA 5. honestly.

Damn you know a rapper/actor's gone when he tweets back to random fans.
He's still one of me favorite protagonists though.

Your point is true but I don't really think it applies to Young Maylay, its just his style to reply to random fans. He's never really been some huge mainstream rap star, he keeps it lowkey. I think he would have been replying to fans 9 years ago as much as he does today.

OT: It would be nice for him to make an appearance in V for old times sake.
