Straight Outta Compton Trailer...

As you guys know by now, I like rap music (Which yes, I realize I tell you all the time). So when I was sent a link to the trailer for the upcoming movie Straight Outta Compton (2015) I was intrigued because I've actually seen a handful of documentaries or what have you about the early days of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, etc. over the years and I find their stories to be very interesting.

And because I find it interesting I thought I'd share the trailer and so on with you guys, even though I know that this kind of movie isn't everyone's cup of tea. So here it is for anyone that might be interested...

And here is the synopsis just in case...
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.        

Straight Outta Compton stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, and is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job).  The drama is produced by original N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright.  Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray, David Engel, Bill Straus, Ronald G. Muhammad, Scott Bernstein and Adam Merims.
Like I stated above, rap isn't everyone's cup of tea but for someone who is into it this could be an interesting movie. Especially if you like N.W.A. and want to learn more about the groups origins or want to know what Ice Cube was doing before he blessed us with the line "Bye Felicia..." in Friday (1995). Either way, I thought I'd share.

If you're into let me know. If you aren't let me know. I love hearing your opinions.
