In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

“More,” DJ said, his voice soft. He rested his chin on his knees. “They were built to build.”

“I guess they were,” Harris said. He smiled. “Does that mean they love it?”

“Yes,” DJ said. It was a simple statement of fact. His fingers picked at the knee of his pajamas, his bare toes rubbing back and forth against the floor. “I do.”
