Ice Cube: My Son Was Rapping “Straight Outta Compton” At 2

(AllHipHop News) The N.W.A biopic will begin shooting in April but one of the possible actors has been practicing for this role since he was a child. In an interview with The Guardian, Ice Cube says that he wants his son to play him in

While Cube admits that he wants his 22 year old son O’Shay Jackson Jr to assume his role in the upcoming movie, it’s his 21 year old son, Darrel Jackson who was immersed into his father’s music early:

 My son Darrel could recite Straight Outta Compton at two years old. He loved it! You can expose your kids to anything as long as you sit there and explain it to them.

As of January, unknown writer Jonathan Herman was tapped as the writer of the biopic, however Cube says that may not still be the case as he describes the movie’s ambitions:

We’re getting the script tight and we’re starting to cast. Hopefully we’ll start shooting in April. We’ve had a few different writers; we’re still working that out. We’re going for a dramatic story that encompasses hip-hop, dope-dealing, Reaganomics, Aids, LAPD, rap feuds, FBI, PMRC, the Parental Advisory stickers on the records … all of it.

    I wouldn’t go around bragging about my son knowing the lines to that song at two IJS. If he’s going to be that smart, I want him reading books to me and dazzling me with how E=MC2 applies to tomorrows futures and how I can invest now in it to get set in life early. But I’m glad it’s going to be his son to play him being they both look just like him in the movie. Should be good. Is Kevin Hart going to play Eazy?

      nah fam, statinga fact to prove a point is nt bragging, at least not in this case… and bruh have you turned on the internet lately…. 2 year old girls have twerk videos…. but cube had a good ass point, as a parent you dont have to shelter your kid from anything as long as you teach and guide them properly.

        I was saying what I felt like saying .

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        ok so what its where he is from…. NWA repped compton for the most part, so thats what the song was about….. your point is well taken but it just seems outta place to point that out when cube wasnt the only member of NWA

      • Jonathan Cayol

        Who is this topic about bruh read the title Ice Cube & his son , let’s not complicate what’s simple , the topic is about Ice Cube the article isn’t mentioning any other member but Ice Cube . What is this the twilight zone ? Ice Cube isn’t from Compt…. You know what forget it you got it I’m the one that’s crazy ! I get it now !

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        you get what? your panties in a bunch? i said your point is well taken…. i understand the article was about cube but my point was the movie is NWA biopic…. i comprehend things very well that is why your point is/was well taken. stop acting like somebody was attacking… i wasnt dissing you

      • Jonathan Cayol

        Aight cool go in peace my friend .

    • What’s funny about it?

      • Jonathan Cayol

        What’s funny about it? Have you heard the song before yet ? Ice Cube is from South Central that is in LA city & Compton is in LA county its all LA but it’s not the same location . Would it be easier for you to understand my point if Snoop Dogg who is from Long Beach which is also in LA county say straight out of Compton ? See Compton is a city in LA county . South Central isn’t a city it’s a neighborhood . Long Beach is a city in LA county also . LA is very huge in size . Just like there is a Baltimore city & Baltimore county . Baltimore county is nothing in comparison to Baltimore city . Compton is live & South Central is live but that’s beside my point all I am saying is that your not coming straight out of Compton your coming straight out of South Central . Nothing more nothing less . & that is why it’s funny . It’s just as funny as Nas telling Prodigy that he isn’t from Queensbridge but that he’s from Hempstead , Long Island does Hempstead have rough neighborhoods yes however it’s just funny . Can I go now ?

    Lil Eazy should play E. dude grew up in his grandparents home in the same house nwa was born..I know there’s about 4 Eric Right Jr’s across the states but lil e has the height and the voice

    • Immortal

      Eazy = Kevin Hart, Yella = Mike Epps, Dre = Pharrell after taking steroids, Ren = Younger Dave Chappelle, D.O.C = NO ONE can play the D.O.C. better than himself. Brothas the diggy diggy DOC y’all, Cube = his son. I’d watch this line up because it’d be almost as real as they were lolz.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        you may think they were jokes but they were influential as hell.

      • Immortal

        Never said they weren’t, but can still have some fun with who’s going to play who

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        true that!

  • onehunglo
