If you are too young to have been in the middle of this movement when it blew it up then we’re sorry, it was a blast. Now’s your chance to taste a piece of what went on back in 1988 when N.W.A dropped a bomb on the music world. It resonated through every street in the midst of riots and political unrest tackling racism and police brutality. Yeah, familiar story right? Nothing has changed since but they left history behind that’s worth talking about again.

The new biopic Straight Outta Compton is coming out in cinemas on August 14th and tells the story of that entire period and the change in culture through the rap scene. We literally cannot wait.

Look out for the cinema release and film download.
