Cube shared a cool picture of them both on Instagram Monday and it featured the duo mean-mugging the camera. He obviously taught Jr. his patented stare because their facial expressions are identical… hell, they almost look like twins!
“Happy Birthday Son.” the rapper captioned his post.
Cube’s post was flooded with fans that were seeing double and they sounded off in the comments section.
“o’shea looks more like ice cube than ice cube looks like ice cube,” a fan commented, while another said, “Twin Kings ???.”
“The son looks like Ice Cube more than his father?,” a follower joked.
Several funny fans noted that “no dna test??” is needed to tell that Jr. is related to the former NWA member. “Like father like son.”
“It’s my birthday and s**t,” Jr. wrote in the caption of his post.
Many of his famous friends wished him well and sent love on his birthday.
When it became time to cast Cube’s hit movie, “Straight Outta Compton” he put his son straight into his shoes for the now iconic film. While there was perhaps a little nepotism in play, who better to play Jr.’s famous pops? Jackson Jr. looked exactly like Cube did back in the day as soon as they added the long Jheri curl and he worked his butt off to portray Ice Cube during the NWA days.
Since the 2015 film, Jr. continues to make a name for himself as an actor and recently had a role in the blockbuster movie, “Just Mercy.” Keep up the good work, fam!
