Straight Outta Compton ★★★★½

This was a risky proposition. To cast a group of unknowns to play some of the most well-known rap artists of all time. But, some truly hidden gems give great performances and NWA is truly honored by this fantastic biopic. Jason Mitchell, who plays Easy-E, gives the best performance of the bunch, managing to find the sensitive soul underneath the roughest of the group members. O'Shea Jackson Jr. gives a good performance as his father, Ice Cube. It may not bare all of NWA's warts, but this was a good movie.
