Ice Cube’s son is following in the footsteps of his dad in the acting world, HipHopDX reports. Sources say that O’Shea Jackson Jr. will be portraying his father in the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Although Universal hasn't confirmed an official casting list for the film, several close sources have confirmed the casting, including the Friday star himself. 

"Yes. I've been trying to get that pushed along," Cube said in an interview back in February. "Just wanna make sure that he's the best man for the job." Well who better to play to Ice Cube than his own son?
