Straight Outta Compton

it's official

“Straight Outta Compton“, the NWA biopic by F. Gary Gray finally got an official release date: August 14th, 2015. Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. will star as Ice Cube (kinda weird, isn't it?), Jason Mitchel will star as Eazy-E and Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre. No word on MC Ren and Yella yet.

“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.“
