‘GTA V’ Star Used To Have Beef With Ice Cube

Shawn Fonteno, voice actor of Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V, was a rapper back in the day, going by the name Solo. In the ’90s, he was in a huge fight with West Coast legendary MC Ice Cube over a business dispute.

He appeared in the documentary Beef 2, which follows the history of rivalries in hip-hop and rap music, back in 2004 describing the fight with Cube, in which he claims he knocked out Ice Cube and stole his chain.

Fast forward to today, Shawn and Cube have since squashed that beef and are on very good terms with Fonteno stating, “He’s from South Central, I’m from South Central, that sh*t’s over with, man.”
