It is here ladies and original gangstas. The movie that must, just must be good or our nation just might not be able to withstand it, quite literally.
After the trailer for N.W.A.’s biographical movie Straight Outta Compton was teased a few weeks ago, the entire official red band trailer for F. Gary Gray-directed film has been released. The most incendiary, high profile, and absolute fucking badass rap group of all time has a movie and thus has an official trailer which you can watch right now. Again, please Gods and Goddesses of Moviedom, let this one be good. We really need it to be.
|LOOK AT THESE GUYS. THEY DESERVE A MOVIE THAT IS INCREDIBLE.|
As for the trailer itself, it covers a wide scope of N.W.A.’s career; you can see glimpses of what appears to be Ice Cube running up in the Ruthless Records office with baseball bats, Suge Knight and others allegedly running up on Eazy-E in the studio, N.W.A.’s infamous arrest for performing “Fuck Tha Police,” and more. What I am saying here is, if it is anything close to what actually happened in the late 80's and early 90's on this scene, then there is no way this one could possibly be bad.
The beginning of the trailer features a foreword from Ice Cube and Dr. Dre while driving around Compton, talking to the likes of The Game and Kendrick Lamar about the impact of the legendary group. Cube and Dre were both involved with the movie, which gives me so much hope.
