Ice Cube & Son, O'Shea Jackson Jr. Go Back & Forth On 'Straight Outta Compton,' Life & More
With Straight Outta Compton absolutely demolishing box offices around the world (except in the actual City Of Compton, where there is apparently no movie theater) executive producer and main character Ice Cube has had plenty to take pride in. Perhaps most notably, in his own son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., who powerfully commanded his role in portraying pops on the big screen as the film’s most outspoken and compelling character. But have your pondered what the dynamic between the two O’Sheas might be like? Whether their voices line up in real world as well as they did on film? How Cube came to consider his son for the role in the first place? Well, so have we. And intimate “back and forth” between the Cube and his son might just be the only way to find out. Luckily for us all, the answers to these questions and so many more lay in the video below, which comes to us courtesy of Noisey, who sat Jackson Jr. and Sr. across from one another to get to the bottom of these burning inquiries and shine some light on Hollywood’s father-son duo. Watch as Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr. dig into the soil of life on Noisey’s Back And Forth below and step out to see the film everyone’s talking about. Hate it or love it, it’s essential viewing for the hip-hop head, young or old.
