Straight Outta Compton

The world's most dangerous times created the world's most dangerous group


Straight Outta Compton
Given the subject matter, this film did better than expected at the US box office, bolstered by good reviews. 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 young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
