NWA is at it Again
Straight Outta Compton released this weekend, bringing in a massive $56.1 million. This makes it the largest August released of all time, showing up “American Pie 2.” Only costing $29 million to make, they nearly doubled their goal opening weekend.
Relevant as Ever
While the story is set when Dre and Ice Cube first started making noise, the plot and controversy is as alive and relevant today as ever. With the recent racial tensions overwhelming the US, it’s no surprise the release was such a hit.
NWA made a big push years ago for a voice against racist police, will they make as big of a statement this time around?
