    I love how through the hype they generating at this movie being made, they have yet to reveal any info about MC Ren, or DJ Yella, or the actors portraying them. I hope that they are portrayed equally & we get the full (or as close to it) story of NWA.

    • MR..ASS..TO..MOUTH..

      from an article i read somewhere i think they are going to focus on the 3 main members.cube,dre,and eazy. because they were the most recognizable.honestly if i was to see ren or yella on the street i probably wouldnt know them.and i grew up with NWA

    • STFUUIgnants

      Ren was “let on the scene to backup the 1st team” but Yella was always down with Dre, so yeah. Maybe the movie ends when they release their first EP

      • mademan3000

        Dude seriously if u know NWA’s history then u would know just how important of a piece Ren was and not be so disrespectful! Ren wrote much more of Eazy’s rhymes than Cube did and who do u think wrote the vast majority of EFIL4ZAGGIN…Ren & DOC!!! Research Eazy Duz It album and see who wrote damn near all of that Ren and let me know what u come up with. Not dissing u fam just tryna educate u.
