Straight Outta Compton Taught Me | Compton

As I am writing this review, it's a certified banger for this weekend already. On pace to make around $40M at the box office, the biopic executive produced by Will Packer and directed by F. Gary Gray gave the fans everything they could have ever wanted, even though some things, like Dre's sketchy relationships & arrest, were left on the editing floor. Clocking in at 2 hours and 30 minutes, the movie at times makes you want to yell “F–k tha Police”, understandably due to police brutality thats currently haunting our nation. So instead of my traditional review in which you can find here, this is what Straight Outta Compton taught me through one of the most groundbreaking rap groups who revolutionized music and pop culture, N.W.A.

  1. It's about hitting the mark for those who it matters too. (Eazy E)

  2. L.A. is the 6th member of N.W.A

  3. Suge Knight IS about that life for real.

  4. When you find the right one, keep her!  (Ice Cube)

  5. White people buy rap records and concert tickets too. (MC Ren)

  6. Do whatever it takes to make it home. #BlackLivesMatter (Ice Cube)

  7. If you believe in yourself and what you are doing, just stick to it. (Dr. Dre)

  8. They try to hide what's going on and we tell it like it is. (Eazy E)

  9. People can wear it with pride now that they are from Compton. (Ice Cube)

  10. Straight Outta Compton is a "rages to riches" story, but please be inspired. (F. Gary)

  11. Never forget! (DJ Yella)

  12. It's not where you are from, it's where you at. (Ice Cube)

  13. Speak a little truth and people lose their minds. (Dr. Dre)

  14. Nothing wrong with getting out the hood. Don't let no hood, homegirls, or homeboys block your dreams. Make sure you go back and help. (Ice Cube)

  15. Just do it! Don't let anything stop you and don't change. (DJ Yella)

  16. It's okay to be happy. Be accountable for your life. Don't live for nobody else. (F. Gary)

  17. A few more kids cuss because of us. (Ice Cube)

  18. You can do allot with a pen and a pad. Somethings just gotta be said and done. (Ice Cube)

  19. If E was here, he would like it so it's cool.  (MC Ren)

  20. Leave a memory no one will forget. (Eazy E)
