Ice Cube took to social media on Monday after hearing the news of Anthony “AJ” Johnson‘s passing to remember the comedian and actor.

AJ, who starred in Ice Cube’s and DJ Pooh‘s 1995 classic film, Friday, passed away suddenly in Los Angeles.

Ice Cube remembered “AJ” as a funny dude and shared his regret of not being able to have him be a part of his forthcoming sequel, Last Friday.

Sad to wake up to the news about AJ Johnson passing away. Naturally funny dude who was straight outta Compton at the same time.

Sorry I couldn’t bring your character Ezal back to the big screen in Last Friday…

See the original tweet below.

My sincerest condolences to all who knew and loved Anthony “AJ” Johnson.

May he rest in peace.
