Wants to Play Her Father Eazy E’s Portrayal in ‘Straight Outta Compton’

“I feel the role of my dad in a biopic should Not just be a ‘given’ to my brother Lil Eazy solely on the strength that he is my father’s junior! To be honest my father has 4 sons total who all resemble him in their own way, just as I have an uncanny resemblance to my father and I am a girl. I think my brother should have to audition and earn the role by delivering a great read instead of just being handed the role—and I’d like to add that I feel I should have that same opportunity to audition for the role as well, and be given equal consideration based on my acting ability and not just my relation.”
Eazy’s daughter further added, “I have dreamed of getting this role for many years now.”
