Movie Plot :

In Straight Outta Compton, In Compton, California in 1986, Eazy-E is a drug dealer, Dr. Dre is an aspiring disc jockey, and Ice Cube is a young rapper. Intrigued by Cube’s “reality raps” reflecting on the crime, gang violence, and police harassment that they and other African Americans encounter daily, Dre convinces Eazy to fund a startup record label, Ruthless Records, with Dre as record producer. When their song “Boyz-n-the-Hood” is rejected by a New York rap group, Dre convinces Eazy to perform it instead. It becomes a local hit, so Eazy, Cube, Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren form the group N.W.A (“Niggaz Wit Attitudes”).

Eazy accepts Jerry Heller’s offer to manage N.W.A and co-run Ruthless, and Priority Records offers N.W.A a record deal. While recording their debut album, Straight Outta Compton (1988), the group are harassed by police due to their race and appearance, prompting Cube to compose the song, “Fuck tha Police”. The album becomes a controversial hit due to its explicit lyrics, and the group’s style is dubbed gangsta rap by the press. During a 1989 concert tour, the FBI demands that N.W.A should stop performing “Fuck tha Police”, because it encourages violence against law enforcement. Police in Detroit forbid them from performing the song, and a riot breaks out when they perform it anyway.

Jerry delays the individual members’ contracts with Ruthless, and when he insists that Cube should sign without legal representation, Cube leaves the group. His debut solo album, AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted (1990), becomes a hit, but when Priority Records is unable to pay him his advance on his next album, he trashes the label head’s office. When N.W.A heavily insult Cube on their next record, 100 Miles and Runnin’ (1990), he responds with the diss track “No Vaseline”, criticizing Jerry and his former bandmates, and prompting accusations of antisemitism. This, combined with his association with the Nation of Islam, outspoken criticism of the Los Angeles Police Department in the wake of the beating of Rodney King, and starring role in the 1991 film Boyz n the Hood, make him even more famous and controversial.
