Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind the Making of “Boyz N The Hood”
N.W.A. was supposed to be “Doughboy’s” Crew
Ice Cube wasn’t the only person Singleton had in mind for the film. He wanted the N.W.A. crew to portray “Doughboy’s” friends in the movie. But seeing as Cube and Eazy E were beefing at the time, it didn’t happen. There is a slight mention to him though. There’s a scene where a thief tries to rob “Doughboy” and his crew. Doughboy and his boys beat the thief up, while he’s wearing a shirt that says, “We Want Eazy.” Sounds very intentional, doesn’t it?
