Ice Cube visited KCRW’s The Business to talk about the making of Straight Outta Compton. Listen after the jump.
Producer Ice Cube was a founder of N.W.A., whose 1988 album Straight Outta Compton revolutionized hip hop. Twenty-seven years after the album dropped, the story of N.W.A came to the big screen, breaking box office records for an August release. Straight Outta Compton, the movie, spent years in development hell. Ice Cube tells us about the struggle to get it made, and about casting his son to portray him.
