For a few years, Ice Cube was truly the scariest Black man in America because he was angry and sounded smart enough to know exactly why he should be and was given a platform to explain it. From the Ruthless Records days, to the beef with Dre and Suge, to bringing us Bone Thugz-N-Harmony, to dying from AIDS. NWA spawned many chillun and subgroups and I was and am here for them all. I followed all of the stories behind the casting and have watched every little teaser. But, I can’t lie, despite my hypeness, I’ve always been a bit concerned because you want a movie about your favorite rap group to get is full justice. Gary Gray is directing so that helps, but I just didn’t want to be, ya know, disappointed. The principals are involved (mostly because save for Eazy, they’re alive) and invested. I just used over 1100 words to tell you that a) I love NWA b) the trailer dropped and c) the movie comes out August 14th. Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. Not even a Wes Anderson joint, but something you might see as part of a museum exhibit before you head to the dinosaur section. Also, this: “comin’ straight outta Compton, crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube, from the gang called Niggaz Wit Attitudes…” is one of the best opening lines in hip hop history of all time of ever. They even have one of the greatest group names in recorded history. I suppose its still possible but this trailer that dropped? He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors.

Then Ice Cube died and was reborn as the nigga who made terrible family movies. I still listen to those albums and am amazed both by how angry he was and how good he was at explaining it. Eazy E is easily one of the most recognizable voices and figures in hip-hop history. I love Eazy’s verse on “Foe Tha Love of $”, which to this day is one of my favorite songs ever. Knowing the story of Ruthless Records and Eazy E, and NWA, is a drama unto itself. Add to the fact how iconic three of five members of one group were and are, and how the legs of their creations ended up killing both Tupac and Biggie. It looks like the people making it cared about it as much as I cared about it being made.Most importantly, he believes the children are our future.
