  62. hey camp jay just visited your web and i’m loving your second album and as for my thoughts you asked should your second album be titled carter boyz,wutcha city like or bring it on pt.2 well if you have pt.1 already then it’s probably cool if you go with a bring it on pt.2 then do a different title for your 3rd album cause i know you’re goona do a 3rd one.but that’s just my opinion based on what you asked.

  63. all is well from what i’ve heard of course i’ve been to a few of your shows already and enjoyed seeing your performance very connecting and moving.i like your whole album you need to perform more of them but again that’s my opinion just keep doing your thang and don’t stop for no one
