When five young men translated their experiences growing up in the dangerous streets of Compton, California into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Set in the mid 1980’s following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
