Arguably one of the most prolific and groundbreaking groups in Hip-Hop history, N.W.A, are being honoured with a brand new movie titled N.W.A – Straight Outta Compton. The title references their debut album released in 1988, and the full cast for the movie has now been revealed. Ice Cube will be played by his son O’Shea Jackson Jr. Dr. Dre will be played by Corey Hawkins and the late Easy-E will be played by Jason Mitchell. The movie will be produced by Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Easy-E’s widow Tomica Woods-Wright alongside Matt Alvarez. The movie is directed by F. Gary Gray (who worked with Ice Cube on Friday). Look out for more promotion as we lead up to the release date of the N.W.A Movie – Straight Outta Compton.

DJ Skee has been responsible for some great television last year through AXS TV, and the start of 2014 is no different as he interviews rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube. The inevitable question of Friday 4 is asked to Ice Cube, who confirms that that New Line are being propositioned with the idea of all the main characters (Chris Rock, Ice Cube, Mike Epps, John Witherspoon and Tommy Lister JR) returning for the final movie. Ice Cube confirms that money is an issue as the cost of bringing everybody back won’t be cheap, but fans remain hopeful for the Friday 4 release.
