Ice Cube and Dr. Dre’s ascension into the rap scene with N.W.A. is recounted in the new movie STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). Check out the new character movie posters from the biopic featuring the five founding members of the world’s most dangerous group, N.W.A.
In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels—armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent—stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today. Watch trailer.
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E. The drama, opening August 14, is produced by original N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
