This biopic chronicles the rise and fall of the most influential and controversial rap group of the genre's zenith in the 1980's and early 90's. N.W.A was composed of four rap artists from the city of Compton, Calif. Their turbulent upbringing in a decidedly violent neighborhood would be the basis for a socially conscious brand of music that was as honest as it was aggressive. The group's polarizing influence on the hip-hop and rap genres continues to be felt today.
