Here’s Our First Extensive Look At The NWA Biopic Straight Outta Compton [TRAILER]


An ad during the Grammys tonight led viewers to head to the official site for the upcoming NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton and it led straight to the general public’s first lengthy look at the upcoming retelling of NWA’s rise from the streets of Compton to gangsta rap stardom. And unless I’m fanning out a little too hard here, it looks too dope.

The clip starts with an introduction from Ice Cube and Dr. Dre as they ride down the streets they used to run. Younger artists like Kendrick Lamar and The Game talk about the impact that NWA made on their lives and their careers. And then the trailer starts…

…wow. Just like NWA’s best work, Straight Outta Compton is shaping up to be a no-holds barred curb stomp . Straight Outta Compton stars Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, and Paul Giamatti as their manager Jerry Heller. Director F. Gary Gary’s moving in the right direction from what I can tell. Check out the craziness above.
