Name:
Franco Roberts

Aka:  
According to Cory Sontag… “Tight Pants”

Website:
xtmonline.com

Where are you from?
Born in S.Carolina, raised in Saudi Arabia and finished high school right here in GA.

Who do you work for? 
XTM, Inc.

What are your Current Project(s)? 
I’m currently working on the relaunch of XTM Online, I’ve got a full interactive website coming August 7. I’m also working on the EXPOSURE fashion show which is August 7. I think PROCESS is featuring their line in the show, but let me double check on that. I’m also working on some film projects, but you’ll hear more about that later this year. And hopefully I can graduate from GA State this year.

Who would you love to work with?
I’m currently working with a lot of the people that I wanted to work with right now with the Exposure show. If I’m not working with them right now, I have plans to work with them. Things are just moving very quickly for me. 

If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep? 
I love my black on black vans but I don’t know what I would do without my Red Olympic Dunks. 

What’s on your iPod right now?
keep a little bit of everything on my Ipod from Outkast, DMX and Common to Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, and Bloc Party. Although when I’m writing I try to listen to jazz. It helps me be a little more creative. 

What’s your Favorite ATL food?
I’ll take a slice of green olive pizza from Rosa’s any day of the week. If you don’t know where it is don’t worry about it. The lines are already long enough. Oh yeah, I can’t forget about Papi’s on Ponce. 

What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
Home!!!  I really don’t go out much. 

What are your Pet Peeves?
People that play games. If I wanted to play a game I would pick up a joy stick.  

Shout outs?
What up “B”,  XTM Crew,  Eric, Cory Sontag, Mary, Serious Ron, No Brakes, Standard Crew, Street Local, Shih, EC/PROCESS, IMBYU, MNDFRM, SOLE Crew, Wish Crew, Phonz, and everyone that’s showed support.
