A true story of how five young black men from the dangerous streets of Compton in Los Angeles formed N.W.A., a musical group that revolutionized the American music industry and pop culture.
"Straight Outta Compton tells the riveting and critically-acclaimed true story of five young men - Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren - who, as N.W.A , forged their anger and inner-city frustrations into the most potent weapon imaginable: their music. ""Straight Outta Compton is epic. An explosively entertaining hip-hop biopic that raps home truths about race and police brutality as timely now as they were during the 1980s in Compton. What stands is an amazement, an electrifying piece of hip-hop history that speaks urgently to right now."" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)"
