The final one-sheet was debuted for Universal Pictures’ STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON and it is perfection. Directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Jonathan Herman and Andrea Berloff we are taken back to 1987 where five young men were being brutally honest while putting their anger and frustration into the most dangerous weapon they knew they had, their music.
Based on a true story, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON follows the rise of N.W.A. one of the most controversial and powerful groups in the history of Rap music. The film stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, and is produced by the original N.W.A. members.
Their raw talent was unprecedented, their lyrics were brutally honest, and they didn’t back down when authorities tried to bring them down. Not only did N.W.A. change the rap game but they paved the way for so many musicians to follow in their footsteps. Their voices and rhymes ignited a revolution, their truth exposed a life no-one had talked about before and they became the world’s most dangerous group.
