I have recently had a discussion with an actor about the film “Straight outta Compton.” My opinion was, It’s a great movie. I felt the movie should have won an Oscar. Hats off to Ice Cube. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1398426/reviews-67
The actor that I was speaking to kicked a lot of mud on Ice Cube and the movie, “Straight Outta Compton.” Was “Straight Outta Compton,” Oscar worthy or am I missing something?
The actor said that rappers aren’t actors because they don’t pay same dues to become actors. He said rappers don’t respect the business; I think that’s a bit subjective. I wonder if the actor was tasting sour grapes because he didn’t get to play a part as big as the rapper in question? Many actors refuse to give rappers their props. Queen Latifah, Ice Tee, LL Cool Jay, and Will Smith aren’t real actors??
