Straight Outta Compton into the UAE! Film to hit screens in October

Long before Ice Cube hit the silver screen with Barbershop and 21 Jump Street, Snoop Dogg voiced animated films and Dr Dre sold his Beats headphones brand to Apple for $3B, they were all Boyz in the Hood.
Dre and Ice Cube have produced the film which charts their ground-breaking rise to fame from the gritty LA suburb of Compton as rappers NWA.
Released last month, Straight Outta Compton made $60.2 million its first weekend.
In a surprisingly tame portrayal, the film features police harassment, internal squabbles, money, drugs, and a veritable who's who of gangsta rap trailblazers that include Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight, Eazy-E, DJ Yella, Tupac Shakur.
Head to the cinemas, gangsta rap and music history fans - but be warned, just don't sing the non-so-squeaky-clean lyrics too loudly in public!
