Watch: Straight Outta Compton


Chronicling the rise of Eazy-E, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren, Arabian Prince and Dr Dre from their Californian beginnings to the undisputed global icons they are today.

The long awaited film borrows the title from N.W.A’s debut album, focusing on the lead up, release and aftermath, how widely and well it was received, regardless of little airplay. A career defining album for a generation defining group, which not only established the genre of gangster rap, but publicised the voice of Compton and America’s youth - much to the Federal Government’s dismay. 

The biopic’s script was worked on closely and produced with Eazy-E's family, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, giving an in-depth, unique insight into the intimate conversations, performances, struggles and feuds that defined and shaped N.W.A. Following a open casting call, Straight outta Compton features a upcoming cast of skillful actors, including O’Shea Jackson Jr. who plays his father Ice Cube, and Corey Hawkins who plays a young Dre.

In anticipation of the August release, we have created our very own N.W.A and early 90's Cali playlist. (NB: Parental Advisory, explicit content to follow)
