Above is our first look the N.W.A Biopic, Straight Outta Compton and it looks really great. The trailer takes me back to being a kid when N.W.A started breaking. I fondly remember getting a copy of Straight Outta Compton around the time that I was already listening to Digital Underground (I used to crank my cousin’s cassette single of Humpty Hump on my dad’s nice stereo whenever the house was empty) and 2 Live Crew (because my parents were cool enough to buy it for me). So seeing this trailer take me back to a nostalgic time. I may not have lived in the inner city, but it was a weird time in which rap music was slowly creeping into the suburbs.
What do you think of the trailer? It looks like a fun step back into the not too distant past. How many people will take to twitter asking who N.W.A was like they did after the superbowl with Missy Elliott?
