Lil Eazy-E Addresses Lack Of Role In N.W.A "Straight Outta Compton" Biopic

Lil Eazy-E: "I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him."

Lil Eazy-E reportedly feels that Ice Cube has betrayed his father's wishes by not casting him in the role of Eazy-E in the upcoming N.W.A biopic, according to TMZ

"I am my father," Lil Eazy-E says. "I look like him. I sound like him."

Eazy-E says his father would have wanted him in the role and points out Cube has his son O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing Ice Cube in the film. 

Dr. Dre's son Curtis Young was not cast to play Dr. Dre in the film. Recently, Young discussed the matter

"I actually tried out for the role, ’cause the casting company called me,” Young says. "But my father wanted somebody with more acting experience, and I haven’t been acting for a long time, so I’m happy for the guy that got the role. It’s one of those things where we want what’s best for the movie and for the film. I had a lot of fans that were upset about it, but whatever’s best for the film, that presents it in that light, then I’m for it."

Nevertheless, Lil Eazy-E says he is set to support and promote the film. 

TMZ also posted the following image with cast members from the upcoming motion picture.

    Fucc all these niggas man. Aint nobody can replace the real NWA. Eazy, cube, ren, dre, ruthless, and the rest of the niggas involved was 500% and rapped from the soul. These niggas grew up on rich daddy's check and never been through the hustle the original niggas did, and niggas like myself are still doin. 4 finger twist on yah niggas

    Dre's son said it best; "What ever is best for the movie." Lil Eazy might look like his Dad, and sound like him- but that doesn't mean he is an actor. No disrespect, but when his father died, is was a baby- so he doesn't even have any frame of reference. Dre's son knows he hasn't much experience as an actor, so he wasn't bitter he didn't get the role and wishes the next man the best of luck. Lil Eazy could learn from that. Dude- go create your own legacy and stop riding on your dads shirt tail. And chance your name if you want people to take you seriously. Ice Cube's son obviously has acting skills or they wouldn't have cast him. I am reading comments from people saying that they should let their kids play their roles. GTFOH with that stupid ass logic.
