[Video] NWA- “Straight Outta Compton- Red Band Trailer”

NWA

Hip Hop heads rejoice; the first glimpse of director F. Gary Gray’s NWA bio pic has just been released…and it looks pretty damn epic. The Red Band trailer starts off with present day Ice Cube and Dr. Dre cursing the Compton Streets, reminiscing on NWA’s legacy and the impact the group of young emcees had over an entire nation.

The intro also features Compton hero Kendirck Lamar, where he states that, “When I think of NWA, it wasn’t really music to me/ It was more like a real lifestyle…Brothers from my neighborhood that made it out.” This statement sums up what NWA embodied, real bothers rapping about their environments, shedding light on issues that were never before mentioned in pop culture. NWA was bigger than hip hop, and judging from what I just watched, the Straight Outta Compton bio pic looks like a great insight to the rise and fall of the worlds most dangerous group in music.

Slotted to hit the theaters August 14th.

Your boy Saukrates drops off a fresh new video for his SonReal assisted single, “#FYEO,” off the recently released Amani EP. Big Soxx latest record was recently nominated for Rap Recording of the Year at the Juno Awards, and it only seems right that he drops a new set of visuals for (in my opinion) the dopest track on the project.

If you want to see Saukrates in person, you can catch him February 24th at Toronto off the Page: Everybody knows it’s the T.Dot, an event celebrating the extensive vinyl collection at the Toronto Reference Library. Saurkates will also be making another stop to our neck of the woods Thursday March 12th as he rolls through Western University to speak at Walrus Talks, an event that puts the spotlight on creativity.

Saukrates 2015 jump off seems to be off to a great start. Be sure to check out the video for,”#FYEO,” and let us know if you plan on checking out any of the upcoming events Big Soxx will be appearing at in the comment section below.
