The NWA biopic “Straight Outta Comptonopened on Friday, August 14 has been receiving rave reviews.

The film profiles N.W.A, the musical group credited with helping to popularize gansta rap. Its depictions of racial tension and police brutality seemed to resonate with audiences still grappling with the aftermath of the deaths of young African-American men Freddie Gray and Michael Brown.

O'Shea Jackson Jr
There had been rumors of Lil Eazy E playing his late father Eazy-E but it didn’t work out and Jason Mitchell got that part (he did a great job.) O’shea Jackson Jr., Ice Cube’s own son played Ice Cube and a new comer Corey Hawkins played Dr. Dre.

After their debut album Straight Outta Compton is released and becomes a smash hit, N.W.A goes on a national tour across the United States. Along the way, the group encounters many protests directed against them.

Clearly African-American rage at the militaristic tactics of the largely white occupying force of police in their communities is nothing new, not now and not in August 1988 when N.W.A.’s groundbreaking album “Straight Outta Compton” was released.

Corey Hawkins
There is one scene in the movie when the group, taking a break in the midst of a recording session, are set upon by cops — one of them is even black — looking to jam them for no other reason than their momentary presence outside the studio on the street. We see the tension between LAPD and black kids in the ‘hoods that eventually made the group to create the most controversial song “F**k tha Police” acting as an angry reaction to police violence perpetuated in some of L.A.’s most ignored hoods.

NWA
The FBI so wanted to extinguish the powerful flame that was “F*ck tha Police” that they sent a sternly worded letter to Priority Records and N.W.A, the first time they had ever done so for an album. But that letter was the best thing that could have happened to N.W.A., though. The marketing genius Eazy decided to send the letter to the press, which stirred up a whole new level of interest in Compton. They went from just being locals in L.A. to tangling with some of the biggest power entities out there. The negative attention only gave N.W.A further fame and with it, album sales………

The onscreen confrontations with the LAPD build to the Rodney King beating, which we see the stars watching. Eazy E is outraged by the footage. Nods DJ Yella (Neil Brown Jr.), “At least we got those muthafuckas on video.” How grim is it to watch this scene in 2015 and admit that long after N.W.A.’s brave feud with the FBI, things have actually gotten worse? Now we have even more cameras — yet the victims so often are dead.

Tupac was also in the film played by Marcc Rose, a spitting image of the man. I was hard to believe that the guy with backwards bandana and all in the studio rapping Dre produced “California Love” wasn’t Pac. Believe me, you would think that was an actual footage from the recording session. It’s no wonder Rose was tapped to play the fallen legend for John Singleton’s Tupac biopic.

SugeKnightP.S.

Suge Knight was not invited to the promo shoot, but dropped in unannounced after hearing that a “Suge look-alike” had been hired to appear in the film. It was reported that Ice Cube, a founding N.W.A. member left the set when the fatal crash occurred. As the saying goes, there’s “no such thing as bad publicity”. Thanks to Suge Knight who is back to jail again.

“Straight Outta Compton,” a rap-to-riches story about the group N.W.A., opens on this Friday! Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and late Easy E are the members of the legendary group from Compton. I want to see the movie not just this is a documentary about N.W.A. but Ice Cube’s real son, O’shea Jackson Jr. is playing his father and he looks just like Cube. “Medicine Man” is a new song from Dr. Dre “Compton” soundtrack featuring Eminem, Candice Pillay and Anderson Paak. It’s been a while since the last time I heard Em. Love it!

  1. Back To Back – Drake

Meek Millとビーフ中のDrake。事の始まりは なんだかMeekにTwitterでdisられたので 黙って居ず Meekにフリースタイルで反撃。Hip Hop好きのみんなは 今回 Drakeよりの人が多いです。そうですよね、一緒に曲作ってるのに Drakeを馬鹿にするようなことを言いだしたMeekは良くない。曲の中で色々Meekをけちょんけちょんに言ってます。

It all started with a tweet that Meek dissed Drake saying “stop comparing Drake to me…..He don’t write his own raps!” Drake responded and released a second track aimed at Meek Mill and it seems all the people are on Drake’s side this time. He is killing Meek!

Between the Lines: George Clintn and Questlove @ Schomburg Center

日本語

George Clinton - BookThe funk musician George Clinton shares stories about his life and career on the occasion of the publication of his new book, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You?: A Memoir. Clinton will be in conversation with the Roots’ drummer, DJ, writer, and producer Questlove.

Grammy award winning artist George Clinton was the mastermind behind Parliament and Funkadelic, the two bands that virtually defined the funk genre. Clinton began recording solo in 1981, and has earned a widespread recognition for his contributions to the music world.

In the memoir, the Parliament-Funkadelic founder will reveal details regarding legal battles he waged to gain control over copyrights allegedly pilfered early in his career. The book will also chronicle Clinton’s struggles with addiction.

Questlove and GeorgeGeorge Clinton sat down with Questlove @ Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Langston Hughes Auditorium

“Look on page 379,” Clinton says. “This book, I had one intention. It’s my story on trying to recapture for my heirs and my family all the copyright and ownership of all the music you’re talking about. That’s my whole reason for writing the book. With me, I’m 73 years old. I wouldn’t have nothing else to do anyway. I got rid of my habit, so, hey, you ain’t really got nothing to do. I got a lawyer habit now. “

george-clinton-200x200George Clinton began his musical career in New Jersey, where his obsession with doo-wop and R&B led to a barbershop quartet—literally, as Clinton and his friends also styled hair in the local shop—the way kids often got their musical start in the ’50s.

In 1982, he released his solo album, Computer Games, which produced the mega-hit, “Atomic Dog.” The P-Funk Allstar’s music provided the foundation for Dr. Dre’s G-Funk Era that dominated the sound of West Coast Hip Hop during the 1990s.

The Funk pioneer has worked with artists from all genres and insists that allowing his music to be sampled has been instrumental in keeping his career alive.

“And anytime I say something about it, they make it look like I’m attacking the artists. So I really want to tell Dre, Snoop, Puffy and everybody, Jay-Z that I’m not the one that sued them. Matter of fact, I’m asking them to come forward to just – ’cause I’m going to the Supreme Court with this,” he said.

He also states he respects 9-year-old kid’s opinion on music.

“As soon as I hear old musicians … or parents say, “That ain’t music” I run to that music, that’s the music I want. Because it’s going to be the next music. Kids love the music that gets on your nerve. “

As for the naked, crack-smoking hotel fire, well, that’s best told by Clinton himself. His “Brothas Be, Yo, Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You?,” co-written with Ben Greenman, is out now.
