Lil Eazy-E is feeling in a ways that he wasn’t cast to play his late father, gangsta rapper Eazy-E, in the forthcoming biopic about N.W.A, the groundbreaking Compton rap group.
Lil Eazy-E thinks Ice Cube has BETRAYED the wishes of his former N.W.A. crew member by casting some no name to play Eazy-E rather than his own flesh and blood.
Lil Eazy tells TMZ … his dad absolutely would have wanted him in the starring role. As Lil put it, “I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him.”
And this part is especially galling to Eazy-E’s son … Ice Cube cast HIS own son O’Shea Jackson Jr. to play Cube. The way Lil Eazy sees it … neither he nor O’Shea are seasoned actors, so why not cast both?
Dr. Dre’s son is in the same boat … he didn’t get cast either.
Is Ice Cube’s son getting cast a simple case of nepotism? Or, maybe Lil Eazy is just a really bad actor? We gotta hear both sides.
The biopic, titled Straight Outta Compton, is due in theaters on August 8, 2015.
