Straight Outta Compton Trailer – with Dr. Dre and Ice Cube

There’s been so much hype surrounding the Straight Outta Compton film and the trailer finally got posted up over the weekend!
The trailer looks so good!

Here’s the synopsis:
In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Straight Outta Compton is out in the US on August 14th.
