The upcoming biopic Straight Outta Compton is just a couple of weeks away from its premiere, but fans of the hit late ’80s/early ’90s rap group N.W.A. are itching for more while they wait for the film’s release. Enter AOL, who gave fans a chance yesterday to experience an all-access look at what it took to make the film and the controversy behind it, as well as revealing a few unknown tidbits about the group throughout.
Moderated by STASHED’s E.I.C. Kazeem Famuyide, the panel included cast members O’Shea Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell as well as former N.W.A. member Ice Cube. The highly anticipated film is set for release August 14 and is already receiving rave reviews for its daring look into the life stories of the once mega rap group.
