N.W.A is fed up and has only one thing to say in this exclusive clip from Straight Outta Compton: “F— Tha Police.”
In a key scene from the new rap biopic due to arrive in theaters Aug. 14, the group is harassed by law enforcement as they hang outside the recording studio. Afterward, Ice Cube (played here by the musician’s real-life son O’Shea Jackson Jr.) hits the notepad and pens lyrics to one of the troupe’s most iconic songs. His collaborators, Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins) and Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) are in. “Oh hell yeah, Cube,” Eazy utters. “It’s gonna start some s—, but this what we need. Hell yeah.”
Check out the clip from the new film (which does contain very strong, NSFW language).
