First Look | Straight Outta Compton


Two days ago, Ice Cube raised the hopes of hip-hop and film fans with a sneak peek of the first trailer for the upcoming biopic, Straight Outta Compton.

The official synopsis reads:

“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 (Niggas With Attitudes), 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.”

One of our most anticipated films of 2015, F. Gary Gray’s re-telling of the exploits of “The World’s Most Dangerous Group,” is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Earlier this month, an enterprising Ice Cube fan in Australia uploaded a bootleg recording of the trailer for the upcoming N.W.A Music biopic, ‘which Cube showed during a concert in Sydney.

Straight Outta Compton opens in theaters on August 14, 2015.
