The West Coast was in the house at the Los Angeles premiere of the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton at Microsoft Theater on Monday (Aug. 10). From Kendrick Lamar to Snoop Dogg, hip-hop’s biggest stars showed up to celebrate the legacy of the world’s most dangerous group.
Producers Dr. Dre and Ice Cube toasted with fellow N.W.A members DJ Yella and MC Ren, who turned it into a family affair.
Dre walked the carpet with his wife, Nicole Young, and three kids, while a proud Cube was joined by his wife, Kimberly Woodruff, and son, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., who plays his father in the movie. Other cast members including Corey Hawkins, who plays Dr. Dre, and Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) were also in attendance.
TDE’s Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock repped Compton on the carpet, while The Game and Common grabbed a seat inside the theater to watch the F. Gary Gray-directed film.
“Proud night for #Compton #LosAngeles & the world,” said Game, while Common added, “Straight Outta Compton movie lets you see NWA as one of the Greatest and Most important groups Ever! It made me wanna write. #history made.”
Monday’s premiere also brought out Dwyane Wade and wife Gabrielle Union, Sevyn Streeter, Tyrese, Xzibit, and former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
