Ice Cubes Son O’Shea Jr. talked about morphing into his father Ice Cube and how ” Universal Studios ain’t about to give you a part over just cause of no nepotism. Just because who my father is and he is a producer on the film. I went through two years of auditioning before I could even get to the screentest with two other Cubes and 3 other Dres.
