    WAYNE IS A BEAST Musician yes guitar player yes. Just moved back to Hollywood California. Material is done for an album just about, but I am also offering my guitar servies for studio session work, gigs for people needing a guitar player, touring, or even joining or starting a band. Don't ou know how many artists are going with the live band sound these days? I'm still all about the dj's and producers making beats but lets put some live guitar over that stuff rather it be in the studio or live on stage. Here is the link to my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bryantc1000&aq=f here you will see things like soul from a guitar player, and a tribute to people like 2 pac, jimi hendrix, and yes even Michael Jackson. Check it out let me know if your interested. My email is leaving.carter@gmail.com Thank you, Bryant C

    Ooh, Ja Rule releasing two albums in one day? Too bad that a lot of people don't care anymore. I'm going to laugh if both albums combined don't sell more than Nelly's (another washed up rapper).

    • The MG

      So you're saying that you traveled to every single country in the world to see if people were still playing Ja Rule? And where did I say that I play Soulja Boy? Quit talking out your ass you little bitch. I laugh and shake my head at people like you.
