The Polished Trailer For “Straight Outta Compton” Features Dr. Dre, N.W.A. & Lots Of Subtleties (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

While Compton’s Kendrick Lamar won big in the evening, during the 57th Grammy Awards, Heads did not see Dr. Dre or Ice Cube in the audience, or on stage. However, the Hip-Hop legends whose fates are forever tied starred in a lengthy trailer for Straight Outta Compton, the upcoming N.W.A. biopic.

The look, a cross-promoted Chrysler commercial, found Dre, Cube, and a glimpse of Kendrick, DJ Yella, and Game, all in Compton. In a tragic nod to last month’s death of Terry Carter, Tam’s Burgers on Rosecrans Avenue is included in the trailer—the same place Suge Knight would be involved in a death that is under investigation. The one-minute commercial then evolves into the trailer.

The latest, official trailer seems to tell a rather accurate account of N.W.A., give or take the way Ruthless Records President Jerry Heller (played by Paul Giamatti) might prefer to be portrayed. Included, Heads can see the earliest Ruthless Records logo, N.W.A. performing “Fuck The Police” on tour, despite strict warnings. Young O’Shea Jackson (Cube was a star football player) taking a bus to a high school beyond South Central appears to be shown. Even Dr. Dre’s exact car of the early 1990s, a white Ferrari Testarossa, is matched. The music, the performances, and the feel all seems pretty strong, eh?

Check the subtle nod to the batterram—the subject of the Toddy Tee song of N.W.A.’s era?
