Straight Outta Compton
is a movie starring
O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell.
The group NWA emerges from the mean streets of Compton in Los Angeles, California, in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood.
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
Jerry Heller described how he viewed Eazy-E's 'thug' persona as "self-forged armor" in his book, "Ruthless: A Memoir". Heller's description of Compton, where Eazy-E and the other NWA group members lived, was that, "No one survived on the streets without a protective mask. No one survived naked. You had to have a role. You had to be 'thug', 'playa', 'athlete', 'gangsta', or 'dope man'. Otherwise, there was only one role left to you. 'Victim.'" See more »

I am totally disenchanted that I wasted my time and money in seeing one of the most awful movie ever. Mean rappers who violate every law and live a meaningless life where every kind of sin is allowed . These gangsters are not peaceful rebels at all,but evil and aggressive rappers who respect no one and whose atrociousness and uncontrollable instincts made them more like beasts rather than human beings. The story of five horny sex slaves who seek pleasure in pornography and explicit sex. The music is absolutely lousy and noisy. Believe it or not :This is a disgusting movie. See this movie on your own responsibility.
