A pivotal gangster rap group that served as a voice for the black community, N.W.A. (Niggas With Attitudes or No Whites Allowed), has been the inspiration for a new biopic. Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Dj Yella, and MC-Ren were the five faces of the group. Compton had found saviors for the voiceless fighting oppression. Their music became a safe haven for kids everywhere like them. From 1986 – 1981 N.W.A. shocked the world with their explicit lyrics, derogatory lyrics (to women), and bold hatred.
MTV has blew the dust off of their story and put a team together to depict the struggles they faced. The movie is scheduled to release August 14th. I’m excited, I think this movie is a great concept and should be pretty interesting. Audiences need more gangster movies that remind us of Menace II Society, Boyz ‘N’ the Hood, and South Central. I’m tuning in and I expect it to be Dope! What do you guys think?
Check out this exclusive trailer for the movie.
