Watch the Trailer For Straight Outta Compton, the True Story of NWA's Rise

It's been 28 years since NWA was founded, and a new movie is coming out to tell the group's story. Ice Cube and Dr. Dre introduce the first trailer for Straight Outta Compton, which comes out in August. The film follows the men from their humble beginnings growing up on the streets of Compton, LA to their rise as some of rap's most successful — and controversial — artists of all time. It's crazy to see how alike the leads (Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, O'Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, and Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E) look to their real-life counterparts. The movie has been in the news lately because of a fatal hit-and-run on the set, for which rapper Suge Knight is currently awaiting trial. Check out the red band video below; just beware of swearing and bare bums!
