*N.W.A vet MC Ren is pissed at Universal for leaving him out of the movie trailers promoting “Straight Outta Compton.”

“F**k these b**ches at universal pictures leaving me out the movie trailers tryin to rewrite history,” MC Ren wrote on Twitter.

The rapper, who with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and DJ Yella was a member of the seminal west coast group, is not shown in any the trailers. Yella is left out as well.

Instead, the focus is on Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and N.W.A manger Jerry Heller.

No only was Ren was one of the main rappers, he also wrote some of Eazy-E’s lyrics.

“When you have b**ches work on a hip hop film that don’t know sh*t about hip hop this is what happens. How the hell u leave me out after all,” MC Ren writes, “The work I put into them records. It’s disrespectful to me, my family and most of all my FANS.”

  1. Ok. I admit I don’t understand why this man is so upset. Is it truly just because he wasn’t featured in the trailor? And if so, what’s the significance of not being included?

  2. kates1221 you’ve gotta be stupid and don’t know anything about NWA. When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought the same thing that Ren thought. He was an integral part of the group, how can you just leave him out of the trailer like he never existed? Pissed me off too and all Ren fans should be pissed.

    • You’re correct. I don’t know anything about NWA. That’s why I asked the question. But it would have been nice if I had gotten a response from someone other than someone who is so ignorant, that they can’t figure out a way to articulate an answer to an honest question without resorting to name calling. And to add insult to injury, your reading comprehension skills are so lacking, that you failed to even answer the second part of my question. Anybody care to take up where “Mister Don’tKnowHowToSayWords” left off? I really would like to know what the significance of the intentional omission of one of the cast members from the trailer means.

  3. Ren was a big part of NWA but just like in the group, he was NOT a main contributor. Ice Cube has been working on this movie for years. This is from Cube’s view. If Ren don’t like the movie, write a book, don’t get made because someone else took their time and money to write a story. The D.O.C. said the same thing (he wrote way more than Ren) but he has a book coming out. Lil Easy was mad because he didn’t get to play his father in the movie like Cube’s son. Lil Easy did contribute jack spit to the movie, why should he get the role? because of his name?GTFOH.
