The voice of Franklin in GTA V is a former rapper named Shawn Fonteno.
Back before he voiced Franklin the gangbanger in “Grand Theft Auto V,” Shawn Fonteno was a rapper who allegedly KNOCKED OUT Ice Cube in a legendary street fight … TMZ has learned.
Fonteno used to rap under the name Solo — and back in the day, he appeared in the documentary “Beef 2” describing a fight with Cube, in which he claims he KO’d the rapper over a business dispute and stole his chain.
The story was huge back in the ’90s … and the incident was a big part of the nasty feud between Cube and Cypress Hill, since Solo was tight with CH.
For all the money GTA V is making he should be able to have something better than Adidas track suit, but maybe he is just trying to stay in character.
