It’s been a while since we’ve been excited by a movie but Straight Outta Compton has got us buzzing. Charting the rise of N.W.A. the movie tells of how five young men from the notorious Compton in Los Angeles became cultural rebels who instigated social revolution using honest lyrics as their weapon.

Renowned for introducing the world to “Gangsta Rap” as well as Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy-E, N.W.A. formerly known as “the world’s most dangerous group”, have been credited for inspiring a generation of hip hop artists such as Eminem, Mobb Deep and The Game.

In cinemas from 28 August, Straight Outta Compton should be well worth the watch.
