N.W.A and the cast of ‘STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON’ cover The Hollywood Reporter

straight outta compton

Cast and original members of N.W.A cover The Hollywood Reporter to discuss their HIGHLY anticipated biopic STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, break their silence on Suge Knight and a reunion tour with Eminem and more.

“It’s crazy how we were getting criticized for this years ago,” says Dre of N.W.A’s provocative songs about inner-city life. “And now, it’s just like, ‘OK, we understand.’ This movie will keep shining a light on the problem, especially because of all the situations that are happening in Ferguson and here in Los Angeles. It’s definitely going to keep this situation in people’s minds and make sure that everyone out there knows that this is a problem that keeps happening still today.”

“It was always about free speech, being able to express yourself, whether people like it or not,” recalls Cube of N.W.A’s early raps (the group made four albums before they broke up in 1991). “That’s the great thing about being in this country, is to be able to speak your mind and not be censored.”

In Fashion: Zoe Kravitz Gets Nearly Nude for GQ

zoe-kravitz

 

If your parents were Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, you would be this cool too!

Zoe Kravitz stripped down to nearly nothing for GQ Magazine and described how she is starting from the bottom and working her way to the top. As a model, actress and musician she is making a name for herself with hard work.

She wants to make things very clear by saying:

“It’s so much work. But let’s be real: I’m not doing this for the money.”

She understands the celebrity status and the work of both of her parents. She knows that she could easily have a record deal right now or sit around her penthouse and just be cute and rich. However, the most interesting part about her journey is how she wants to pay her dues just like everyone else. Zoe is on tour at the moment with her band “LOLAWOLF” where she is traveling around the country performing at music festivals and opening up for different artists.
