Nwastraight Outta Comptontrailer Premiere Is Best Hip Hop Moment 2015 Grammy Awards
This year we'll get to relive the rise of N.W.A. in the upcoming ' Straight Outta Compton ' biopic, and we're eagerly anticipating the release. But on Sunday night (Feb. 8), we finally got to see an official trailer for the film, when it dropped online during the 2015 Grammy Awards telecast.
'Straight Outta Compton' castmembers -- who will play Ice Cube , Dr. Dre and Eazy-E -- were confirmed last summer, but this new teaser means we're getting that much closer to the movie's Aug. 14 opening.
Ice Cube shared a sentimental message in a statement to MTV News ahead of the awards show on Sunday night.
'In 1984, I met Compton's best DJ. His name was Dr. Dre, the cousin of my homie Sir Jinx,' Cube said. 'He liked the neighborhood rhymes I was spitting and we started hanging out all the time. Talking and thinking music.
'A couple of years later, Dr. Dre's little hustling friend Eric (Eazy-E) Wright started coming around,' he continued. 'We all created a song together called 'Boyz-N-The-Hood' ... and the world would never be the same.'
