The buzz is growing and everyone is highly anticipating the soon to be released N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton.

Will it be real to life, tell the story in a truthful and as it happened fashion or will it be the usual Hollywood glossy affair that belies the real full facts and only covers a small fraction of the full story of many a black icon?

So far the reviews are good and the film does have Ice Cube and Dre Dre themselves as producers of the film. The film also has a first rate director on board F. Gary Gray who knows how to make gritty, hard-hitting urban films from a mainstream perspective and then you also have power-producers like Will Packer who is the man of the moment when it comes to creating black films that sell at the box-office.

All bodes well for the film!

We thought we would give you a little flava of the film and let you make up your own mind.
So here is the raw red-band trailer, a featurette, media clips with producer and orginal NWA member Ice Cube and cast talking about the production of Straight Outta Compton.

Enjoy!

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr, Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.

Produced by N.W.A members, Ice Cube and Dr.Dre.

 Straight Outta Compton will release in cinemas 28th August.
