O'Shea Jackson Jr. Did 'Straight Outta Compton' To Make Father Ice Cube Proud

O’Shea Jackson Jr. hits the red carpet alongside his father, rapper Ice Cube, while attending the premiere of their film Straight Outta Compton on Tuesday (September 1) in Sydney, Australia.

The 24-year-old actor, who plays young Ice Cube in the flick, recently opened up about nepotism accusations surrounding his role.

“That kills me, that stuff,” O’Shea expressed (via The Guardian). “It hurts. How could you not be happy for me? The people out there who believe it was nepotism, they don’t know the process. There was gonna be no one as passionate as I was. People should be applauding someone who’s able to take this family legacy and build on it, to further work on this empire my father built from the ground up. It’s all about my father. Everything I did was just to make him proud.”
