In 1988, a groundbreaking new group revolutionizes music and pop culture, changing and influencing hip-hop forever.

It's the story of producers Dr. Dre and DJ Yella and rappers MC Ren, Ice Cube and Eazy-E. Together they formed, N.W.A, otherwise known as, "Niggaz Wit Attitudes."

The movie depicts how their attitudes were shaped in the badlands of Compton, a city in south-central Los Angeles County with a reputation for drugs, crime and street gangs and a shocking murder rate. After years of getting racially profiled and harassed by the police, N.W.A obscenely defied the cops on vinyl and onstage.

 N.W.A's first studio album, "Straight Outta Compton," stirred controversy with its brutally honest depiction of life in Southern Los Angeles.

The movie includes vulnerable moments of brotherhood and friendship, and a moment during the 1992 LA riots depicting the truce between the Bloods and the Crips gangs. The film also includes the group's musical beefs, their business dealings with manager Jerry Heller,  menacing incidents involving former bodyguard Suge Knight, who co-founded Death Row Records with Dr. Dre and also the death of group memeber, Eazy E.
