N.W.A. was one of the most prolific groups to hit the scene in the 80s, inspiring people in urban communities around the globe with their music. Now on August 14th their story will be hitting the theaters, but it won’t be a group of Hollywood vets stepping telling their story. Instead director F. Gary Gray cast a crew of virtually unknown actors. So do they pull it off?
HipHollywood sat down with Corey Hawkins who plays Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell who plays Eazy E, O’Shea Jackson Jr. who plays his father Ice Cube, and Gray who told us their performances will shock the world. Check out the video above and be sure to see Straight Outta Comtpon in theaters August 14.
