Hollywood has done all the right things when it came to the release of N.W.A’s biopic “Straight Outta Compton”. This movie by far has seen rave reviews and topping the box offices with nearly eighty million dollars within its first week of premiering. So, who’s behind the magic? Well, N.W.A members Dr.Dre and Ice Cube of course! These two have created what has to be the best African American film to ever hit the big screen. More than that, there has even been talks of the movie receiving Oscar nominations. This news comes to a surprise as the first rapper to ever receive a Oscar was indeed Eminem for his song “Loose Yourself” for his movie 8 Mile. Nevertheless, the first rap group to receive Oscar award was Three 6 Mafia. Could this mean that “Straight Outta Compton” could be the first rap biopic to receive this phenomenal award?
In addition, sources such as TMZ have just recently reported that a sequel to the N.W.A biopic is already in the works. So, this of course leaves fans wanting to know what’s the deal? Well, TMZ has reported that the sequel to the movie will in fact pick up where the first one left off. Other sources have also claimed that the sequel to the movie will include other West Coast rap legends such as Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Nate Dogg, and Warren G. Can you say icing on the cake?!? Unfortunately, Ice Cube and Dr.Dre won’t be around to produce the film. However, surely enough Cube has given the okay for the sequel to begin working. Just as ‘’Straight Outta Compton”, the sequel will follow the careers of the legendary rappers previously mentioned. Oh, and just so everyone knows, Suge Knight will not be involved in this installment of the legendary West Coast hip-hop, but Death Row Records will still be a part of the sequel since it was a tremendous part of hip-hop’s history.
