Could this guy be Franklin?

Back when Ned Luke had Twitter he followed DJ Pooh, Young Maylay and this guy all in a row. The first two are understandable but who is this guy?
Another thing is he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth like Ned Luke as his last tweet was in July, he also does not mention GTA once despite
following R* DJ Pooh and YM. Seems like someone has told him to lay low and be quiet for a while and I have a pretty good idea who that could be.

The only thing is he doesn't really look like Frank from that pic at least. But this could be the case of the character bearing little resemblance to their VA like Niko's VA

Update: Did some detective work his name is Shawn Fonteno and he's starred in two films both dirrected by DJ Pooh with one also starring the voice of Sweet from SA.

In the two scenes I saw him in he didn't look much like Franklin (he's allot chubbier) but when I heard him talk I was like oh sh*t he sounds just like Franklin

Comparison Video



Comparison picture
He's heavier looking than Franklin but I can see a resemblance now

Update: OG Solo has closed his twitter account a day after we made the discovery, his account was inactivate for months before now. Definitely suspicious...

More info from Rutran

QUOTE (Rutran)
OG Solo (Shawn Fonteno) is also known as a rapper from Los Angeles, Watts CA. Affiliated with another Watts rapper - Kam and early Ice Cube's Lench Mob crew (everybody are affiliated with DJ Pooh).

You can hear him on these tracks:
Kam ft Solo - Where I Come From (Produced by DJ Pooh)


Kam ft Solo & Tyrese - Showin' U Off (Produced by DJ Pooh)


Solo appears on these videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N0AQtkOiIE

As well Solo is known for beatin' up Ice Cube on the streets back in 1997.

Beef between Ice Cube and Cypress Hill (watch from 9:55 to hear short interview with Solo about what's going down - stoling Ice Cube's chain, Rolex watch and knockin' him out)

Interesting.

I honestly thought Franklin sounded like Ice Cube when I first heard him!

It's a definite possibility he's the voice actor for Franklin, I'm still pretty convinced Ned Luke is the voice actor for Michael.

Good thread, OP.

Thanks man, I'm still not 100% certain but it's nice to finally have found someone who could actually be the voice.

Sounds like him! We should probably wait til the release to just be sure if its him! And it would make sense if he played Franklin seeing as this guy is affiliated with dj pooh and dj pooh has had quite a few connections to rockstar. And if this guy was Franklin, that would mean that rockstar found voice actors for 2 gta protagonists through pooh.

What do you mean by "starring the voice of Big Smoke"?

Now that you mention it he would, it also could explain why Franklin looks like he's in his 30's instead of mid 20s like R* intended

Holy sh*t, I forgot all about that dude. I love the movie "The Wash", but I never knew his name. Great find. This could be Franklin's voice actor.

That's 100% Franklin's voice. That iphone screenshot is from my thread about Ned Luke's following list from way back in April. I remember seeing OG Solo on the list and trying to find more out about him. I'm glad this thread got posted.

Where have you been, haha? Michael is most likely (lets face it - he is; but we don't OFFICIALLY know that) Ned Luke.

Sh*t, I think it definitely has to be him (if the Twitter evidence wasn't enough). Just look at the cheeks.

Now for someone to find Trevor's VA...
