N.W.A. reunites to hang with the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ cast

NWA actual and NWA actors

NWA was my favorite rap group growing up so I’m very interested in seeing ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ the biopic based on the exploits of the world’s most dangerous group.

Yahoo! Movies took this exclusive picture of the surviving members (DJ Yella, Ice Cube, MC Ren, and Dr. Dre) and their on screen counterparts Neil Brown Jr. (Yella), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Cube), Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E), Aldis Hodge (Ren), and Corey Hawkins (Dre). Hodge doesn’t quite make me think MC Ren, but the others match up pretty well.

We’ll see how it all unfolds when the movie opens Aug. 14.

    Can’t wait to see this film, one of my most anticipated films of the year easily. NWA was favorite rap group as well and one of my favorite groups of all time in any music genre. I’m feeling pretty good my friend, the Dubs(Warriors) went up 1-0 against Cleveland in the NBA Finals, now just 3 wins away baby haha.

    Yeah after the after a few summer duds and good not great AOU, i will need something to look forward to. Who the greatest things i could look forward to this summer are DOPE, NWA,.. maybe eh ANT-MAN and some other low key summer stuff. Is summer trying to become awards time of the year lol. Yet I will take this over another Trannsformers ( I can never get tired of well done marvel movies) blaring my senses to death. Other than inside out there isnt even another animated film coming out? Since Im already marking the DC stuff for redbox im half way out of the summmer in 1st week in June? ( i think im skipping Jurrassic Park but the wife will see it with her family in Disney, while im on this cpu.. working lol)

    So right now the few movies im mention, after that catching up on all of the good lowkey late winter stuff now on dvd/ and neflix ( in the middle of a different world slow binge). Thats my summer entertainment. I guess I can put FF7 as apart of summer, since this things start so earlier each year. Anything im missing jeff? anything worth while from here till say ant man i should try. Even if its on DVD. Spy doesnt exist to me lol.

    Looking forward to this movie and that picture above is really cool. The trailers actually make this movie look like it’ll do the story justice.

  • Me too. I’m very hopeful for this one!
