Arabian Prince says he's not angry, but he knows people who are. Although he was one of the founding members of the rap group N.W.A, he was left out of the hit movie Straight Outta Compton, and, as a result, people are seeking him out on Facebook to vent.
For N.W.A. as a group if, Eazy was its heart, Heller its business brain, Cube its lyrical mouth, undeniably, Dr. Dre was the group's musical soul. Dre's ear created a sound that had rhythm and bounce, enabling him to hear the cries of the ghetto, and relay it to the world with thump.
I would recommend seeing Straight Outta Compton. I hope the producers recognize their obligation to the community that is making it such a success. The movie has a lotta heart. Now Cube, Dre, and F. Gary Gray, please show that heart to Compton.
This is a movie that should appeal to a limited audience, but it is presented with such skill and with such compassion and heart that it should draw in huge numbers of persons wanting to see a real work of art.
Straight Outta Compton, which documents the rise and ensuing events of the legendary rap group N.W.A. is not only being lauded for the well-crafted film, but also the manner in which the promotional campaign tactics have taken a life of its own.
