‘Straight outta Compton/ crazy mother f&%#*$ named Ice Cube!’

Their lyrics are coming out on the big screen this summer. On August 14, the world will finally see who the Worlds Most Dangerous crew really is.

Eazy E, Ice Cube, Dr.Dre, Mc Ren, and Yella were the most dangerous group in one of the most dangerous places in America, Compton, California. There past is going to show the amazing history of old school hip hop and rap.

The genius who directed this upcoming movie is F. Gary Gray and the legends of N.W.A, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, co-produced. The additional producers are Tomica Woods-Wright and Matt Alvarez. F. Gary Gray directed other movies related to this topic, Friday and Set it Off. Without the talented cast and the look a likes who played the five hard core gangsters of N.W.A, the movie wouldn’t be realistic. Jason Mitchell plays the main rapper in the group Eazy-E, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, O’Shea Jackson Jr. playing his dad (Ice Cube), Aldis Hodge as Dr. Dre, Neil Brown Jr. as Dj Yella. The basic layout of this, amazing piece of art and history, is the rise and fall of Compton, CA with the group, N.W.A, getting famous who sing about their lives and their environment. The title, Straight Outta Compton, is borrowed from N.W.A’s 1998 debut studio album. The movie is distributed by Universal Pictures, and the production companies are Legendary Pictures, Cube Vision Productions, and Will Packer Productions.

To get to the top wasn’t easy for the talented group. The crew published nothing but Gangsta Rap and West Coast Hip Hop, which everyone loved,1986-1991, but there music still hasn’t been forgotten today. All theof the group members are still alive except the legend, Eazy-E, but he will never be forgotten. The talented, stunning rapper died on March 29, 1995, at the age of 31, from Aids. Ice Cube and Dr. Dre still have their careers going on. Dr. Dre with his company, Beats by Dre and Ice Cube being a producer, filmmaker, rapper, and much more.
