Los Angeles, Ca – The World Premiere of Straight Outta Compton had the Black carpet rolled out for this much anticipated film telling the story of N.W.A. life. Producer F. Gary Gary had the whole crew in smiles at this black carpet at Microsoft Theater L.A. Live. They allowed fans who lined up earlier to be in bleacher stands to cheer the celebrities on as went to the carpet. The lucky fans in front who yelled the loudest got opportunities to take selfies with some of the stars.

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 young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.
