Rightfully dubbed “The World’s Most Dangerous Group,” N.W.A. delivered some of the most controversial songs and lyrical content in the late 80s & early 90s. Banned from mainstream American media, the Hip Hop group still managed to sell over 10 million records in the US. There’s no doubt that N.W.A.’s impact on American Rap culture has transcended through generations.
It was only a matter of time before a movie depicting the lives of this iconic Hip Hop group would come into fruition. Recently, while touring in Australia, Ice Cube revealed the full trailer of N.W.A.’s biopic, “Straight Outta Compton.” An anxious fan in the audience caught the trailer on video.
The trailer is about three minutes in length and appears to tell the story of Gangsta Rap’s pioneers. The movie is said to hit theaters late in the Summer of 2015.
Director: F. Gary Gray
