Straight Outta Compton is a 2015 biographical drama film that traces the rise of the hip-hop group N.W.A. from their starting days in Compton, California. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray and stars O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E, respectively. The film begins in 1986 when Eazy-E, a drug dealer from Compton, recruits Ice Cube, a budding rapper, and Dr. Dre, a skilled music producer, to form the group N.W.A. Together with MC Ren and DJ Yella, they create a new genre of music that reflects the harsh realities of life in Compton. The group's debut album, Straight Outta Compton, is a commercial and critical success, igniting a firestorm of controversy due to its explicit lyrics and anti-police sentiments.

As N.W.A. tours the country, they face resistance and violence from law enforcement, but they refuse to back down. The group's popularity soars, and they become icons of hip-hop culture. However, tensions within the group begin to surface, and Ice Cube leaves the group to pursue a solo career. Dr. Dre follows suit, and Eazy-E's business practices come under scrutiny.

It presents the members of N.W.A. as complex and flawed individuals who were driven by a fierce passion for their music and a desire to speak truth to power. The film is also a tribute to the legacy of Eazy-E, who died of AIDS in 1995.
