Omar Gooden Is Ready To Rap


Gooden, who plays the wild, young gangsta Sweet

Pea, in John Singleton's Baby Boy is preparing to release

a rap album. The actor has a crew called Legion, a group

hoping to drop their freshman album sometime this year.

With the first single, "Mamacitas," the group

has received some airplay on commercial radio.

The 24 year-old

Gooden comes from an acting and musical family. Brother

and actor Cuba played in Singleton's first movie, Boyz N

the Hood, and his father was a member of the 70's soul group

Main Ingredient. Omar has played on shows like Hangin' With

Mr. Cooper and Ghost Dad.
