New Trailer Released for ‘Straight Outta Compton’ (Watch)

Straight Outta Compton film

*Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E’s personal lives before they made it big as members of N.W.A. are revealed in a new trailer for upcoming biopic “Straight Outta Compton.”

Universal Pictures’ Aug. 14 release follows the rise of the group from southern Los Angeles in 1986 to music superstardom.

When one reporter at a press conference complains that the group’s songs “glamorize gangs and drugs,” Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) corrects him by explaining, “Our art is a reflection of our reality.”

Corey Hawkins plays Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell plays Eazy-E, Neil Brown Jr. plays DJ Yella and Aldis Hodge plays MC Ren, who joined the group in 1988 — the same year original member Arabian Prince left.

Others portrayed in the film include Snoop Dogg, played by Keith Stanfield, and embattled Death Row Records founder Suge Knight, played by R. Marcos Taylor.
