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.
