Hip-Hop’s most iconic group NWA’s documentary made its way to theater’s over the weekend to reflect on Hip Hop history. It honestly shouldn’t be a surprise that the movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’ blew out of the water as a biopic all the members of NWA are living legends. So of course everyone wanted to learn more about them. After the weekend the movie scraped in 60.2 million dollars, making it one of this summer’s blockbusters.
*Spoiler Alert*
Straight Outta Compton was everything everyone was expecting plus more, including non-stop controversy. The movie shows Dr.Dre and Ice Cube performing in a bar when they weren’t supposed to be performing gangster rap. Then later they show the relevant police racist issues they through, which is extremely relevant right now with #BlackLivesMatter. This movie showed how talented and motivated the members of N.W.A. are after Ice Cube didn’t approve of what was going on he walked and went on to do his albums which were just as hot as his stuff with N.W.A. Which should be a confidence lesson that you don’t need anyone else to be successful. This also proved true with Dr. Dre, who split and kept his mind focused on the music and worked with Snoop Dogg and Tupac.
Oh man, though when Eazy-E starts getting sick and discovers he has Aids you had to grab some tissues and put your shades on so your date didn’t know you were tearing up, because Eazy dying is sadder than the time Marley the dog died. It was hard not to cry though Eazy-E was the main man in N.W.A. and was just incredible all on his own. His daughter took to Twitter to say that a lot of his story was missing and she wants to make another movie on him. Yet I think the movie did great showing what N.W.A. was all about.
Straight Outta Compton was dope and an amazing recap of the N.W.A (Niggas with Attitude) story on how they became rap gods when gangster rap didn’t exist yet.
