Before Eazy E, Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube became N.W.A. they were just three guys trying to get by. The first trailer for upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton showcased the group’s monumental influence on hip-hop and politics, but now get to know a little more about the lives of the men before they made history. In a brand-new trailer, we see the early days of the Compton-bred crew, when a young Dre, E, and Cube were and trying to change the situation they were in. We also meet manager Jerry Heller (played by Paul Giamatti) who co-founded Ruthless Records with E in the ’80s. Check it out above and catch Straight Outta Compton when it hits theaters August 13.
Before the biopic was official, Ice Cube gave us his dream cast.
