N.W.A. Has Plenty to Say in Second 'Straight Outta Compton' Trailer

Straight Outta Compton

"I gotta tell ya, you are witnessing history." Following a red band trailer release not too long ago, the theatrical trailer for the hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton has arrived. The film tells the story of N.W.A., a revolutionary rap group formed by artists Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, and while the familiar music biopic beats are here, this one brings a different element to the table. When rap comes to the forefront of music, a wave of discrimination and hate came with it from the other side of the fence. The music that was full of profanity and references to violence was just illustrating the environment these young men grew up in, and that's what should have been causing the most outrage at the time. Watch below!

Here's the new trailer for F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton from MTV:

You can still watch the first red band trailer for Straight Outta Compton right here.

When five young men translated their experiences growing up in the streets of Compton, California 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 story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood igniting a cultural war. O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell star in the film directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, The Italian Job), and Universal releases it on August 14th.

    I get the chills hearing Eazy's voice, brings me right smack back to that time when these guys exploded onto the music scene in LA.
    They gotta add some of the more recent developments.
