Easily on of my most anticipated films this year, the new trailer for STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON has got me even more excited! Growing up in the 1980’s, music was literally my life, I remember wearing my Raiders hat like so many of the rap and hip hop groups I loved did. N.W.A was like nothing we had heard before and changed the game on so many levels they changed music and pop culture forever all by telling the truth about their lives growing up in the streets of Compton, California, some of the most dangerous streets in the country.
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the unbelievable story of five young men who translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. The film stars 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 biographical 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.
