We can reveal that the actor who will be voicing San Andreas' Carl Johnson is Young Maylay, he's an up and coming rapper from Los Angeles.

Dan Houser described him as having a "powerful" voice. Official Playstation 2 Magazine USA, Issue 86 was the mag that had the info, an extract from it is below:

"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."

Thanks to GTAGaming for the heads up

Who is this guy? Is he a rapper? A hair metal dude from LA? Is this a good choice?

Dude, have faith. If Dan Houser chose this guy because he liked him, that speaks well of him. Give him the benefit of the doubt. As I said, have faith. R* know what they're doing.

For all you know, he might exceed your expectations.
