Compton Royalty at the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Premiere in L.A.
Now, here’s a film that looks like it might be worth checking out! ‘Straight Outta Compton’ is a new biographical film that revolves around the rise and fall of the hip hop group N.W.A., which to put it lightly, pretty much started its own genre of music. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are co-producers and Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson, Jr. plays his father in the film. I’m happy that these guys have the cold-hard cash to finally make something like this without having to worry about their return on investment (which I’m sure will be great).
Here’s more about the film & trailer:
The film chronicles the background history of the group N.W.A, its members and the dynamics of their relationships with each other, from the band’s inception, to growing success and stardom until the eventual disbanding. Source
