Are you excited for Straight Outta Compton like we’re excited for Straight Outta Compton? If so, then you’ll also want to check out this live stream the stars of the new N.W.A.-based biopic from Universal Pictures are doing today on YouTube ALONG WITH DR. DRE, ICE CUBE, DJ YELLA and MC REN! MC Lyte is moderating the discussion which begins at 1:30 pm PST today!
The movie, which takes a look at the early days of gangsta rap, the emergence of West Coast Hip Hop, and, particularly, the collaboration between some of hip hop’s biggest stars — Dr. Dre, Eazy E, and Ice Cube in forming the dominant rap group of its time, N.W.A.
The live stream should get pretty candid as some of the group had a pretty contentious falling out when original member Arabian Prince left the group (note his non-participation now) and Ice Cube dipped out to do his own thing later. Easy-E and Dre were straight up enemies when E went solo and then died of AIDS, so if you were on the fence about watching this live stream, make no mistake, it just became a MUST WATCH for you.
If the link above doesn’t work for you, you can check it out on the Universal Pictures YouTube channel.
The movie comes out officially August 14.
