“We put it all in the music. All our frustration and anger. Our music was like our weapon.”
The most redeemable moment from tonight’s Grammys wasn’t Kanye almost pulling a Kanye. No, the best thing by my eyes was the release of the red band trailer for N.W.A.’s upcoming biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The clip starts off with original members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube going back to the streets that birthed “The World’s Most Dangerous Group” and hearing from two CPT artists they influenced – The Game and Kendrick Lamar – before rolling into an extended look at the movie itself.
Bouncing 6-4s, Raiders gear, ass-n-t*tties, Jheri Curls. Yeah, this looks just like everything they packed in their music, which means this movie is about to be dope as hell.
The film is scheduled to release in theaters on August 14, 2015.
