Franklin was born in South Los Santos, San Andreas, in the year 1988. He never met his father, and when he was a child, his mother became a cocaine addict. Franklin recalls hearing stories as a child about his father being belligerent and physically abusive to his mother. This may be leading her to turn to cocaine to escape the abuse.
Franklin’s father abandoned him, although his mother was still expecting him. Franklin’s mother’s addiction resulted in her death when he was a small child. He joined in with his mother’s parents when his mother died. During this event Franklin met Tonya Wiggins and JB Bradshaw. Despite his grandma’s continuous spoiling, Franklin had opted to pursue a career as a street thug.

He became a gang member and dope dealer about this period. He began performing more minor crimes with Lamar, such as carjacking and small-time bank robberies.
They stole $2,000 during their first bank robbery but could not take the money because a dye pack detonated. Franklin also worked for Marcus, a local drug dealer he later murdered.
