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.

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.


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.

サザンカリフォルニア出身のHipHop レジェンドグループ NWA の物語を映画化した 今すごく話題の Straight Outta Compton が 今週の金曜日、とうとう上映されますね。メンバーには Dr. Dreや Ice Cube, 今はなき Easy Eもいて歴史に残るグループの一つです。私も映画みたいです。Ice Cubeの息子さんが 若き Ice Cube役を演じたらしく、それも見どころみたいですね。

Eminemも参加してる Medicine Manは 映画のサウンドトラックからの一曲。久しぶりにEminem聴けて嬉しいな。

“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!

  1.  Burn Up The Dance – Dillon Francis & Skrillex f/ Maluca

LA 出身の EDM系のDJ/プロデューサー Dillon Francis と EDM/ Dubstepの ちょー人気プロデューサー Skrillex が共作の新曲。レゲエ調+エレクトロテイストで センスよく ノリのいい夏にぴったりのトラックです。クラブでもかかってます!

EDM DJ/Producer Dillon Fransis from LA and one of the hottest producers Skrillex collaborated and dropped this one. This song has a nice electro taste with a Reggae flavor, perfect for a hot summer.
