"Our art is a reflection of our reality."
Compton, California, wasn’t exactly a nice place to be in the 1980s. Violence, drugs, and theft ruled the neighborhoods. But out of that mayhem grew an art form that soon had a huge influence on culture. "Straight Outta Compton" tells the story of how Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E rebelled against abusive authority with their music that gave rise to N.W.A. The movie also stars the always awesome Paul Giamatti as well as a group of young actors cast as the N.W.A members.
Directed by F. Gary Gray, whose previous work includes The Italian Job, both Ice Cube and Dr. Dre served as producers of the film. Check out the official trailer ahead. And yes, there are some really cool 1980s cars, such as a Ferrari Testarossa being chased by the cops.
