YoungMaylay

Young Maylay is the stage name of Christopher Bellard, an American rapper.

Bellard, born 1979, was raised in Los Angeles, California amidst the gang violence and the gangsta rap peak of the 1980s and 1990s. He begun his music career in 2000. Bellard has released two albums, the San Andreas: The Original Mixtape in 2005, The Real Coast Guard in 2008, and Brushfires & Earthquakes in 2010.[1]

During the early 2000s, while working in New York, Maylay received a phone call from friend and fellow rapper DJ Pooh, and the two had a regular conversation about music which, unknown to Maylay, occurred on speaker phone, with Rockstar Games stuff hearing the conversation. The developers encouraged Pooh, who was co-producer and writer for Rockstar's next GTA game, to bring Maylay in to audition. Several weeks after the audition, Maylay was selected as the voice actor for Carl Johnson, the main protagonist of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.[2]
