Fans Recently Discover Disturbing Details Of 1994 Death Of Boyz N The Hood Actor ‘Dooky’
Revealing Details: Actor From Boyz N The Hood, ‘Dooky’, Tragically Passed Away In 1994
It has been over 27 years since director John Singleton’s “Boyz N the Hood” was released. It marked a time when the true life in the “hood” had been documented “by us, for us”. The film followed 3 childhood friends: Doughboy, played by rapper Ice Cube of N.W.A., Doughboy’s brother Ricky, played by Morris Chestnut; and Tre, played by Cuba Gooding Jr. John Singleton became the first African American and the youngest person nominated for a best-director Oscar for this movie, and we all loved it!
Remember the pacifier-toting actor in old school film Boyz N The Hood? His name was Dooky in the film, and he was the homeboy who was always on the block hanging out, and was down for whatever. He also appeared in supporting roles in two other Singleton directed films; Poetic Justice (1993) and Higher Learning (1995), which was released after his death.
He Hadn’t Even Turned 23 Years Old
His real name was Dedrick Gobert, and he hadn’t even turned 23 years old, but he was violently killed over a drag-race in November of 1994.
Dedrick Gobert was shot killed on an isolated road after arguing during a drag race. This reads like a script in a movie, but this was sadly real life, that ending with 2 people dead, 1 paralyzed, and another charged and sentenced to death. Here are how the events unfolded.
