MUMBAI: Sony Le PLEX HD is set to premiere American biographical thriller ‘Straight Outta Compton’ on 15 January at 1 pm. The movie will have a repeat telecast at 9 pm.

Based on the true story of this famous American hip hop group, ‘Straight Outta Compton’ takes you through the world of drugs, brotherhood and West Coast Hip Hop music.

The film was a commercial and critical success making over $200 million against its $50 million budget. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

The film’s soundtrack album, featuring music by N.W.A, debuted at no. 1 on the Rap Albums chart and reached no. 1 on the Top Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr. (who plays the role of his father Ice Cube), Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E and Paul Giamatti as N.W.A’s manager Jerry Heller, the movie boasts of an intriguing narrative and strong performances.

The film, based in an impoverished, oppressed Compton, California during 1986, is the story of Eazy-E, a drug dealer, Dr. Dre, an aspiring disc jockey and Ice Cube, a young rapper. Intrigued by Ice Cube’s “reality raps” reflecting on the frequent systemic oppression that African Americans encountered daily, Dr. Dre convinced Eazy-E to fund a startup record label, Ruthless Records, with the former as record producer.

When their song “Boyz-n-the-Hood” got rejected by a New York rap group, Dr. Dre convinced Eazy-E to perform it instead. It became a local hit and Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren formed the group N.W.A (“Niggaz Wit Attitudes”), which revolutionised music in the ’80s.
