Straight Outta Compton tells us the origins of N.W.A. The first fun fact is N.W.A. doesn’t stand for North West Airlines. And the guys in this group are a little touch on the angry side. Apparently they just don’t like The Man.
But to announce their anger then need to make a record and they need cash. So Easy E rolls up and says, “You’re in luck, today it looks like they’re giving out free money in the hood. Why don’t we take these stacks of cash and make conservative white people mad.”
But as they push the envelope the cops come down on them hard. Ice Cube is like, “F–K Tha Police. Hey wait, record that and let’s make another million dollars.”
After N.W.A gets hit after hit, Ice Cube says, “If I’m writing most of the songs I probably should get a little more than jack squat.” So he breaks off from the group and makes a diss record. And the guys are like, “It’s really hard to be mad at the guy when he gives us the lyrical middle finger in style.”
Once Cube leaves, Dre is next. And Easy is left with N.W.A.’s manager who is an old crusty white dude. But even this relationship goes sour when Easy finds out the old white dude is a bigger gangster than him. And then Suge enters the picture and Easy is like, “That old dude has nothing on Suge.”
The Straight Dope: All kidding aside, see this movie it is great. This movie is a remarkable story about N.W.A. and Easy E. Their story reminds all of us to not accept what we are given and challenge authority in all forms when we know it is wrong. BLACK LIVES MATTER, ALL LIVES MATTER!
