You might not have known this, but famous rappers Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are producing a very cool biopic about young men living in Compton "who revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war." If that doesn't entice you, some of the film's characters include a young Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E!
Check out this cast photo that just got released and read the synopsis for the film below.
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 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.
Premiering August 14, 2015, this biopic is produced by the very people who were in the middle of it all! We're also very excited to hear what the soundtrack for this movie will be like since Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are producers!
