Lil’ Eazy-E Upset About “Straight Outta Compton” Cast

The son of deceased N.W.A member Eazy- E, who goes by the moniker “Lil Eazy-E”  is disappointed in the cast list for the upcoming biopic “Straight Out of Compton“.

Mainly because he won’t be starring as his father in the film.

Lil Eazy- E, whose real name is Eric Wright Jr., believes that Ice Cube betrayed his fathers wishes by casting an actor who is not family for the role.  He told TMZ , “I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him.” Lil’ Eazy may be feeling especially snubbed since Ice Cube cast his own son to play him in the film. Dr. Dre’s son also auditioned to play his father but didn’t get the part. Eazy-E’s widow Tomica Wright, N.W.A members, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube are all a part of the casting team. Though he is upset that he didn’t get the role, Lil’ Eazy says that he will still support and promote the film.

    I understand where Lil Eazy-E is coming from, but it should be more about that his father is portrayed in true form, not that he gets to be his father

    I feel like he’s overreacting a little but. I understand how he’s feeling, but I really don’t think it was anything personal.
