The fantastic Straight Outta Compton tells the story of seminal hip hop group N. W. A – comprising Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren – whose groundbreaking debut album galvanised youth culture on its 1988 release, and is now a classic. Using explicit, honest rhymes and hardcore beats, these five young men voiced their frustration and anger about hood life in southern L. A. – then the most dangerous place in America – in their propulsive, addictive tracks. Straight Outta Compton shows how their music resonated across the world; following the rise and fall of the group against a backdrop of recurrent gang violence, HIV, the L. A. riots and vast, perilous fame.
