Straight Outta Compton is the origin story of ground breaking rap group N.W.A. While many today may know them more as individuals, whether its movie star Ice Cube, uber-producer & beats maker Dr. Dre or posthumous rapper Easy-E, as a collective they were a music group that was feared by the establishment, but adored by rap fans around the world. Universal dropped the official global trailer today. Let’s just say, we can’t wait for this one to come out.
Official Plot Synopsis
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 young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
