Straight Outta Compton is an upcoming semi-biographical movie that follows the founding members of the legendary rap group N.W.A. during the early years of the groups history. I wasn’t really aware of rap music/alive during NWA’s heyday so I can’t say they’re one of my favorite groups of all time, but I can definitely appreciate their story and the music they made. Straight Outta Compton looks like a very interesting film set in Southern California during the 1980’s. I have to say, the filmmakers made some excellent casting choices because the actors all look very similar to the men they portray in real life.
Straight Outta Compton is scheduled to come out in theaters on August 14th.
