Character “Ferris,” in “Boyz N’ The Hood,”

ILOSM fam’ here’s a shocker for you. Remember the gang banger,”Ferris,” in “Boyz N’ The Hood,” who was always rockin’ the skull cap? He was cat who bumped into “Ricky” at that Crenshaw spot, then fired a round of shots in the air and then his homie later killed “Ricky.”

But after “Doughboy” kicked “Ferris” in the a$$, literally, in that parking lot, just before killing him in revenge for “Ricky’s” death, it seemed like his acting career died too, because we didn’t really see him in much else afterwards.

No More Jheri Curl!

He looks so different from his ‘uzi strapped, skully wearing’ character, that we hardly even recognized him, especially without his Jheri curl!

Nope, He’s Not A Gangsta!

Fast forward to today and times have definitely changed for this ‘gangsta’…

Raymond ain’t shooting up anyone nowadays! The only thing he’s shooting out are some religious words for the Lord. What we learned about Raymond is that his character couldn’t be farther from his real personality.

He is very devoted to his Christian faith now and just to give you a taste of how different he is from ‘Ferris the skully rockin’ gangsta,’ check out the video clip of him below…
