In the mid-eighties, the village of Compton, California, was famous for one of the towns with more violence in the United States. It is a biopic about American rap group NWA formed by Arabian Prince, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube and MC Ren. Five young men, born and raised there, decided to capture their daily life in music, creating a new style that revolutionized the cultural panorama of that time. His honesty and rebellion against abuse of authority began a new generation with Hip-hop as a banner and music as the voice that distanced them from silence that had engulfed by the government.
