Last week, the Streets Of Compton documentary series premiered via cable network A&E. The docu sheds light on Compton’s rich yet turmoiled history of drugs, violence, and political propaganda. The three-part series also explains the connection between the city’s history and its culture. One major piece of the culture is most certainly Hip Hop. Check out the new song entitled “Death Row Chain” by The Game below.
A soundtrack is to accompany the docu series and Game is taking lead. The soundtrack, which is sure to be some serious heat, is set to drop June 17th.
N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton” exceeds expectations and tops the U.S. box office last weekend with $60.2 million. The film, which tells the story of the legendary N.W.A. rap group, was originally projected to bring in closer to $25 million for its debut. However, the movie not only crushed that projection, it also more than doubled its production budget of $29 million.
The success of “Straight Outta Compton” represents a huge win for Hip Hop. As the culture takes strides toward gaining respect, “Compton” has the best selling R-rated movie opening ever. It appears that ticket sales will have a bigger impact than record sales on the genre this year.
This movie will surely go down as a classic, now sitting in the company of films like “Boyz n the Hood,” and “Menace II Society.”
“Straight Outta Compton” is definitely a must see, so do yourself a favor and be sure to check it out.
