Being the son of the hood superstar Ice Cube meant the closest thing O’Shea Jr got to seeing the streets was watching Friday. OMG (Oh My Goodness) made his debut in the family business by being featured on Cube’s album, I Am The West. O’Shea followed his performance with his solo mixtape entitled Jackin’ For Beats.
O’Shea had a great performance in Straight Outta Compton which put him directly in the spotlight. With the bloodlines of a hip-hop legend, O’Shea looks to have what it takes to be a star.
Nothing screams hardship like moving from Europe to America while your father continues his Oscar-winning career. The son of Daniel Day-Lewis airs his struggles out in “Green Auras,” stating, “From Europe to the East Coast / It wasn’t easy to adapt….I was on a bad path / I did too many drugs / Felt like coping on my own when all I needed was a hug.”
While he might need a hug, he also might want to look for a different career.
