Universal Studios has released the first official trailer for the upcoming biographical film Straight Outta Compton. Be warned, this trailer includes explicit content.
In 1987, Compton, California was home to the most dangerous streets in the entire country. Five young men from those streets would come together to form N.W.A., a rap group with a message that the authorities found just as dangerous as bullets in a drive by. Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella laid the groundwork, as quite possibly the most important group in the history of rap music. Their graphic, unflinching, and unapologetic message about the violent streets from whence they came, would leave its indelible mark on music and culture.
F. Gary Gray directed this picture, which stars Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aldis Hodge, Neil Brown Jr., and Paul Giamatti.
On August 14th 2015, N.W.A. will come Straight Outta Compton and into theaters nationwide.
