If you never watched *Boyz N Da Hood*, then you definitely did not grow up in the 90s. Regardless of what era you grew up in though, *Boyz N Da Hood* is a great film that everyone should watch. After all, it got nominated for two Academy Awards and was selected to be in the National Film Registry (just saying). For those of you who did watch the movie — how many of you remember Doughboy? Obviously the adult Doughboy was played by Ice Cube, but we’re talking about the kid version who was played by Baha Jackson. After his role, he kind of went MIA for awhile. The information on his current whereabouts have surfaced and you’ll never guess what he does now.It was an American teen hood drama film that was directed by John Singleton.
The filming took place between October 1st to November 28th, 1990 and finally released on July 12, 1991.
This made the Singleton the very first African-American to ever be nominated for an Academy award.
The United States Library of Congress deemed the movie “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film was also chosen for preservation in the National Film Registry.
Because the movie was such a hit, it rocket-launched Ice Cube’s career along with his status.
He played the infamous role of “Doughboy.” Do you remember who in the film that was?
He was the boy who played the kid version of Ice Cube’s character.
Doughboy: “That’s my lady, homie, her name is Brandy.” Ricky: “Man, she ain’t your woman, she my woman.” Doughboy: “How can she be your woman, when she my lady?”
But there was something about the way they said it that just made it sound right coming out of their young mouths.
He had a few minor roles after “Boyz N Da Hood” but nothing that actually influenced his real future career path.
You might have not remembered his role but he was in there. And his ironic character’s name: Baha.
He took on small character roles in the films “3 Ninjas” and “Mr. Jones.” After those films, he mysteriously disappeared.
It’s definitely not something we would have guessed.
A man who used to play the a character named “Doughboy” is now an actual dough boy, running his own restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia! The best part: he calls himself Chef Dough.
And according to the photo below, the ladies love Chef Dough! This might be an implication of how good his cooking is.
Not sure what exactly is going on in this photo, but we think it’s safe to assume that it’s just Baha being silly.
If you pay close attention to his face, you can still see the resemblance of the young character he played.
What he was charged with is unknown. Details on his arrest are difficult to find.
It looks like he’s made amends and put that behind him. He seems content with where his life is now.
He’s too busy cooking up some delicious food to be involved in anything else.
Even if it’s a drastic change, it’s doable — especially if it’s to improve your life for the better.
He went from Doughboy to Chef Dough and look at how happy he is now!
Hopefully those kids know their father is more than just a really good cook — he’s a retired star!
Although there is still a small resemblance of his younger self, he looks pretty different for the most part.
Those of us who did watch “Boyz N Da Hood” back in the day, we will always remember him as “Doughboy.”
