Lil Eazy-E

My Dad Would Be Outraged

I Was REJECTED in N.W.A. Flick

7/2/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Eazy E Straight Outta Compton
Lil Eazy-E thinks Ice Cube has BETRAYED the wishes of his former N.W.A. crew member by casting some no name to play Eazy-E rather than his own flesh and blood.

Lil Eazy tells TMZ ... his dad absolutely would have wanted him in the starring role.  As Lil put it, "I am my father. I look like him. I sound like him."

And this part is especially galling to Eazy-E's son ... Ice Cube cast HIS own son O'Shea Jackson Jr. to play Cube.  The way Lil Eazy sees it ... neither he nor O'Shea are seasoned actors, so why not cast both?

Dr. Dre's son is in the same boat ... he didn't get cast either.

Eazy-E died in 1995 after being diagnosed with AIDS.

Lil E is really disappointed, but in his dad's honor he's going to support the film and help promote it.

Yeah Why the hell dont these kids get an education and do something on their own rather than sponge off their parents. Your parents and your name doesnt owe you anything, get some skills then complain. spoiled hood rats.

Easy was talented but his son may not have what it takes. Cube performed with this man, he knew him very well. As a producer I think he knows what to look for.

Doesn't sound like he's honoring his dad by spouting off, he needs to learn the right way by being humble

I feel bad for Lil Easy because I know it must sting that Cube's son got the part, but one inexperienced actor in a starring role is more than enough.
