The phrase "Bye, Felicia" was first heard in Ice Cube's 1995 cult-classic film Friday, and it eventually went on to become a popular Internet meme. Straight Outta Compton, N.W.A.'s biopic, provides a fictionalized version of the moment that phrase was first uttered.

The author of the article stated that the audience at her screening thought it was hilarious and the scene was "met with major laughs." She called director F. Gary Gray to ask how the scene came to be.
Apparently it was Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr's, idea and the scene was shot spontaneously one night. Gray's response: "That just happened to be a fun moment that we capitalized on during the process of shooting. Some people may feel like it’s the origin of 'Bye, Felicia,' but it’s a fun moment, a wink and a nod to the original Friday and a little bit of fun. It's one of the funniest moments in the movie."
