Watch the Throne [Feature From the March 2012 Issue]

C.J., do you have any aspirations of getting on the stage yourself one day? I remember, several years ago, Faith telling me you were rapping.

C.J.: I don’t think I want to be a rapper. [Long pause] I don’t want to, actually. I think I’m pretty sure of that. I just want to make my own path, really. I really want to be a movie director. Study film. Get into that lane. Get into acting, as well. I’ve been reading for a lot of stuff lately. I can definitely see myself being an actor. But I really like [being] behind the camera, as well. I can do them both. I really want to apply and hopefully get into USC. Their film department is great. NYU, also. I just don’t want to move so far. I love L.A. I don’t want to move. I love the East, but I don’t want to be far away from L.A. USC is the main one. I have to look into more of them.

Well, whatever you guys do, I know it will be successful. It’s in your blood. Do you guys have any last words or feelings about your father’s legacy?

T’yanna: Basically, you can clearly listen to his music and get a feel as to where his mind was at. You can feel the hunger, the struggle, the want to make it. I think that, by his passion, other rappers should follow that. Have passion in your music. You’re gonna go far.

C.J.: Just have the passion. You really can’t be successful as a rapper if you don’t strive for it. I can tell my dad wanted it. He really just wanted it to provide for his family. All these other guys have to get on that.
