Ice Cube's Son, O'Shea Jackson Jr., to Play Rapper in N.W.A. Biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton’ (Exclusive)

Ice Cube and director F. Gary Gray have cast the iconic rapper's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. to play the original N.W.A. member in Universal's biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” multiple individuals familiar with the long-gestating project have told TheWrap.

Gray (“The Italian Job”) is directing from a script by Jonathan Herman, which Ice Cube has previously described as a comprehensive “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.”
