How To Play as Franklin and Lamar

To play as Franklin and Lamar, you first need to unlock Record A Studios. Once you have done this, you will eventually get a phone call from Franklin that invites you to the studios. Head over there and watch the cut scene pan out (which is essentially you smoking at the studios).

After the cut scene ends, you will have access to the short missions where you can play as Franklin or Lamar. However, it's worth mentioning that these missions cannot be done solo and are designed as a two-player co-op. To access the short missions at any time, all you need to do is head back to Record A Studios and go into the weed room to trigger them.
