Hip-Hop Rumors: N.W.A. Movie Is FINALLY On The Way?

It seems like yesterday when Gangsta Rap stripped Hip-Hop of is conscious mind and moral compass! But, you know what, I’m not mad at N.W.A.! They paved the way for Waka Flocka and even Kendrick Lamar! Here we are in 2012 and the rumors are flying that this movie may finally get made! They have been talking about it for ages. Looks like F. Gary Gray is going to make it pop, according to

Negotiations are underway for Universal Pictures to pick up “Straight Outta Compton,” F. Gary Gray’s feature film about the hip hop band N.W.A., from New Line,  a person familiar with the situation has told TheWrap.

The feature follows the legendary hip hop band’s rise to stardom, from being teenagers in poor Los Angeles neighborhoods to the breaking up of the band.
Andrea Berloff penned the script for the film, which includes Ice Cube (pictured) among the producers.

“Straight Outta Compton” also looks at the controversy surrounding the group, Easy E’s death from AIDS, the beginning of Ice Cube’s solo career, and the forming of Death Row Records.

    • Alf Capone

      aye my nigga………….how is watching what u wear, drive bys, and worrying about gang banging considered the good old days?……….ur a house nigga

    • sanjuankilla

      you know what,thats true but now the only message music has is,money, sex,drugs,kingpin,balling,hustling.back then music had a rebellious message towards the police and censorship,now a days the only drive by’s you see is by a bunch of tight jeans wearing swag fag kids, 40oz’s became a thing of the past and for college kids, even gangs wars have changed at least on my side of the hood.

  • Wasn’t CB4 the N.W.A. movie? just jokin with a bit truth to it.

    • No, it was the Rick Fawlse movie.


    • AK

      Lol except eazy was really doing moves over here

    • hoeyuno

      yea I would agree. easy was the only one with a street name. but most of the original gangsta rappers were frauds in a way. ice t was never in a gang either. it’s funny how dre is just so sick of a producer that nobody says dre u a fake homie

      • Dre’ = Gay…but produce so well, nobody gives a fugg, ICE T? He was in it Brah!

      • hoeyuno

        in a gang? or did u think I was saying ice t was nwa

      • Ice T was in that Gang life, not saying every rap was true, but back then, there wasn’t any fake gang members, no such thing, like it is today.

        I mean, back in the days, drug dealers used to pretend they were rappers….Rappers didn’t pretend to be drug dealers until Alpo, AZ & Rich Porter.

  • Richard Savage

    Can’t wait to see that. hope it better then that bs movie about BIG

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

  • Ni99az4LIFE was a classic & spawned Ice Cube’s Death Certificate, another classic!

    Hard to tell who won that battle at the time….

    I heard a Rumor they were gonna remake CB4 & call it “Officer Ricky”.

    • imaman2012

      who that battle?

      cube with no Vaseline. when he dropped that.

      they didn’t even respond and soon after the whole group broke up.

      that what makes a good ‘dis’ record. when there’s truth to the words.

      • No doubt!
        No Vaseline set the new standard for battles, but NWA was already breaking up…but yeah, that killed them.

        Out of all of them, Ice Cube even beat Dr. Dre!

      • hoeyuno

        cube said that him and eazy kissd and made up then eazy was like lets do this beef thing on some fake shit and cube didnt see the point. Holmes was really choked tho when he dropped no vaseline
