First look at Ice Cube and Dr Dre’s Straight Outta Compton

10 February 2015

The first trailer for NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton has dropped.

The trailer opens with Ice Cube and hip-hop's first billionaire Dr. Dre, on a south-side ride along as they reminisce on their formative years there and the talent (like The Game and Kendrick Lamar) that has come up in the years since. The two also feature in the film’s credits as producers.

The film follows the thrilling but controversial rise of Cube, Dre, MC Ren, DJ Yella and Eazy-E, kicking off the west-coast hip-hop scene and selling nine million records before predictably imploding.

Cube had an acrimonious split from the group before pursuing his solo, but became reconciled with his former band-mates after Eazy's death.

Cube and Dre have overseen the film project together, with input from the other surviving members.

The film stars Corey Hawkins as Dre, with Neil Brown Jr. as Yella, Aldis Hodge as Ren, Jason Mitchell as Eazy and the real life son of cube, O'Shea Jackson Jr., playing him

Keith Stanfeld will appear as Snoop Dogg, with R. Marcus Taylor as Suge Knight and Rogelio Douglas Jr. as Public Enemy's Chuck D.

Straight Outta Compton will be in cinemas from August 14
