10 Things That Must Be Addressed in N.W.A. Movie

The casting for the starring roles in the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton is now complete as Aldis Hodge has been cast to play MC Ren while Neil Brown Jr. will play DJ Yella. Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell were previously cast to play Dr. Dre and Eazy-E while Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. will play portray his pops. The film will be directed by F. Gary Gray and is scheduled to hit theatres on August 14, 2015.

Now with many biopics, creative licensing is usually taken and many facts are purposely left out or the truth is sometimes glossed over. With the living members of the group serving as producers of the film, let's hope this doesn't happen. Still, there are a few topics that we think need to be properly addressed in the upcoming film. — Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
