One of our most anticipated movies of summer 2015 is the biopic of NWA, Straight Outta Compton.
Since that first Straight Outta Compton trailer bowed, anticipation could not be higher for this Movie Fanatic to get inside the legend that is the hip hop group that changed everything when they busted out of their Southern California neighborhood and helped put a new art form on the pop culture map.
It was the mid-'80s and a group of friends came together and would create something that simultaneously reflected what they experienced on the rough streets of Compton, and also enlightened the world as to the daily life of some of our country’s most disenfranchised citizens.

Ice Cube, Eazy-E and Dr. Dre are portrayed by O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Cube’s real-life son), Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell in the film that is due August 14. The biopic is helmed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, The Italian Job) and also stars Paul Giamatti as the group’s legendary manager.
