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 Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy E, MC Ren and DJ Yella revolutionized music and pop culture forever. They told the truth about life in the hood, and ignited a cultural war.
