The group NWA emerged from the streets of Compton, California in the mid-1980s and revolutionized Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood. From the Universal Pictures description:
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 youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these 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. in 1987 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
