What’s Happening In Hip-Pop: 50 Cent Purchases An African Mansion, O’Shea Jackson Jr. Speaks On Racial Profiling, & More

Straight Outta Compton star O’shea Jackson Jr. opened up about being a victim to racial profiling.

The 24-year-old told Daily Mail Australia:

We’ve been harassed and profiled but then when they read “Jackson Jr” on my ID they shape up a little bit and then you can lawyer up a little bit on them and they tend to let you go.

He added:

It’s always extremities when you are a young black male dealing with law enforcement.

We hope he continues to use his platform to speak on this issue.
