Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels-armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent-stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.Written by

How real is "Straight Outta Compton" when the movie totally omits the fact that Dr. Dre beat the hell out of his full-time/part-time girlfriend/singerMichel'le?
According to Michel'le in interviews and in her Lifetime movie, Dr Dre repeatedly physically abused her on an ongoing basis.
She was a significant presence in Dr. Dre's early years and yet no mention of her at all in the movie? She does not exist because representing her would make Dre look like the horrible person he is and not the glorified hood rat this movie portrays him as.
