JoJo Smollett just wrote an op-ed in support of his brother Jussie. The article, titled, “What If Jussie Is Telling The Truth?”, explores the various reasons why we should believe the “Empire” actor over the “corrupt” Chicago PD. But, being that it’s Jussie’s big brother asking us to absolve him, many are a bit skeptical. Enter O’Shea Jackson Jr. — he may just be exactly what Jussie needs.
We caught up with Jackson during the press run for his new film “Long Shot.” In the comedy, O’Shea Jr. plays the ultimate best friend — supportive, hype and down for anything! Sounds like something Smollett may be lacking these days, right?! And not just Jussie, but many other celebs as well, which is why we played a little game with the “Straight Outta Compton” rapper to see what kind of advice he would give to celebrities in precarious situations. We asked him about Jussie, Wendy Williams, and even Kim Kardashian and her new found legal pursuit — check it out, O’Shea’s pretty spot on with his encouragement.
"Long Shot" hits theaters next Friday, May 3rd. Make sure you go check out Jackson starring alongside Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. Oh, and speaking of "Friday", the actor gave us an update on his dad, Ice Cube, writing "Last Friday" and what the story could entail. Check back to HH next week for that exclusive!
