That’s right after years of hearing about this, today we have been treated to a trailer for the upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton.
The film follows the rise of N.W.A in the late 80s and early 90s and looks like it’s going to have an amazing soundtrack.
If there is one thing we loved as 80s babies / 90s kids, it was the west coast hip hop that made that decade what it was.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.
Anyway, enough jibber jabbering, Peep this shizz:
