What The Cast Of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Did After The Movie Will Melt Your Heart

at8:48 pm | By

It’s been almost a year since Straight Outta Compton was released to theaters, and while that’s not a lot of time to go by, so much has happened since then. The movie became an unexpected smash hit in the box office, and Hollywood itself, despite it controversially getting snubbed from the Oscar’s this year. Setting a record as the highest-grossing musical biopic, the story of N.W.A. was portrayed perfectly by the cast, who has been up to a lot since they rose to superstardom from their roles.

O’Shea actually portrayed his own father, Ice Cube, in the film, and looked like a spitting image of the man who created him. It was a pretty dope moment for both of them.

Since filming wrapped, O’Shea has been working on getting into more acting, but also got to present at the Grammy’s. Both O’Shea and his father presented Kendrick Lamar with the award for Best Rap Album this year, which was a big moment in rap. There was a rumor he was going to star in the new Friday movie, but he denied that it was true.
