In the mid-1980’s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. Determined to escape their harsh neighbourhood, five young rebels decided to translate their experience of growing up in these mean streets into music. Armed only with their brutally honest lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent, they formed a group called N.W.A and stood up to the authorities attempting to keep them down, giving an explosive voice to a silenced generation.
Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., this highly anticipated biopic tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionised music and pop culture forever from the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural revolution.
Straight Outta Compton reveals the controversial birth of hip-hop as we know it today, featuring an inspirational story of perseverance, adversity and incredible talent. Explosively entertaining, Straight Outta Compton is available to own on DVD and Digital, with the exclusive Director’s Cut available on Blu-ray which features an additional 20 minutes of the film.
