Deja Jackson is the daughter of rapper O'Shea Jackson Sr., better known as Ice Cube, and his wife Kimberly Woodruff. Unlike her father, who gained fame as a member of the group N.W.A right on the cusp of adulthood, Deja has been fortunate enough to enjoy a relatively private upbringing. Her parents have devoted themselves to provide her and her siblings with a happy childhood. She has four siblings, three brothers, O'Shea Jr., Darrell, and Shareef, and one sister, Karima. Her two older brothers, O'Shea Jr. and Darrell, have followed in their father’s footsteps into the world of music. They are both rappers. O'Shea Jr. is also pursuing a career as an actor. He made his debut in an uncredited role in his father’s 2009 comedy film Janky Promoters.
