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
According to O'Shea Jackson Jr., the scene where Ice Cube trashes the office of Priority Records almost didn't make the final film. It was absent from a rewrite and he pleaded that it be reinstated. See more »
When Ice Cube records music for "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted," a nearby television is playing footage of Minister Louis Farrakhan giving his speech at the Million Man March. The "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" album was recorded between Nov. 1989 and Apr. 1990, but the Million Man March took place in the fall of 1995. See more »

This was appalling to watch real hip hop and rap was people like Kool Moe Dee or the young Busy Bee movie's like this make our world a harder place It felt like this was sent out out to all the teens and children it's wrong appalling. This isn't how music should be this genre is so poisoned and tainted it shouldn't of been funded it was unbearable. Would it of been so hard to have some positive people in it positive lyrics. Not that their life stories aren't bad or respected it's just the movie was all about rewarding ignorance I feel like anyone that watched this has been tainted it's not the cast, I respect some of the cast it just put the wrong message out to people especially the ones underage that will watch this. The swearing, drugs and violence were a huge impact on this and now more teens will do it monkey see monkey do. If it was old school if it was like respected hip hop artist in the 80's it would of been way better and I would of loved it.
