Ice Cube and his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. bring the father-son cuteness in a new interview where they ask each other questions about their blockbuster film Straight Outta Compton. In music news, Tank has a new track featuring Wale titled “You Don’t Know.” Check it inside…
Straight Outta Compton producer Ice Cube and his actor son O’Shea Jackson Jr. are riding on cloud nine after a fantastic debut weekend at the box office, bringing in $60.5 million.
In a cute father-son interview for Noisey’s ‘Back & Forth,’ Ice and O’Shea sitdown to chop it up about how they felt about the N.W.A. film, what it was like working with one another and their favorite/worst scenes in the film.
The filmmaker revealed he didn’t want anyone else to portray him other than his son. He already knew who he wanted to play him but he said he was just nervous O’Shea wouldn’t want to do the film. The hardest scene to watch for Ice was the moment his bandmate Eazy-E found out he had contracted HIV. But, he said his favorite scene in the film was when he went into Priority Records busting up ish with a bat and when they performed on stage in Detroit in the opening scene.
O’Shea shared he was nervous when his father asked him to do the role but he felt responsible to portray his father in the right light. He talked about the moment he realized he was comfortable with his portrayal of his father and how he felt when he saw himself on screen for the first time.
Check out their back and forth below:
