Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how five young cultural rebels—armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent—stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today.

Unlike today this genre of music does not emphasize on the struggles of the community and the change and equality it hopes will emerge from these messages. 'Straight Outta Compton' is a story told with great pace, fantastic acting and some true moments that will resonate emotionally. Any fan of this group of artist will love the moments when the songs are written and performed in concert. I was actually surprised that this film did not get more Oscar buzz.
This is a film that I have already watched multiple times and am proud to have as a part of my collection.
The only downside of the DVD is that it's not the Director's cut, which also means there was 20 more minutes of the movie that wasn't seen in the theater. You have to get it either On Demand or buy the Blue-Ray version but you do have the usual extras, including hearing from the real Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, MC Ren & DJ Yella & director F. Gary Gray.
Sure they didn't touch on some of the other controversies that surrounded the group, but also learning a lot from the record business and the dealings with a shady manager shouldn't overshadow what NWA meant to the music industry and society.
Real quick final thought - all the new cRAP is just garbage. I listened to this stuff in the mid-late 80's into the mid-late 00's. Sh!t just ain't the same these days!!
