The Monday Morning Throwback – Our interview with Shawn Fonteno

Back in 2013, when Grand Theft Auto V was the hottest game in the world, Brian & Jean got Shawn Fonteno on the phone for an interview.

Shawn is a rapper, actor, author, & more..and he famously played the role of “Franklin Clifton” in GTA V.

We talked to Shawn about how he got the role, what it took to bring Franklin to life in the game, what his future plans are, and which one of the strippers in the game is his favorite!

Shawn went on to write a book called “Game Changer: My Journey From the Streets to Your Video Game Console“.

You can find him on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tik Tok, and many other platforms.
