17 of the Greatest Music Biopics of All Time
Straight Outta Compton
Rap biopics tend to be some of the best when it comes to this genre of films. Straight Outta Compton is no different, telling the story of the gangsta rap group N.W.A.. The surviving members of the group were all involved in the making of the film and ensured that an accurate story was told — at least in their perspective. They were so committed to accuracy that Ice Cube was played in the film by his real-life son O’Shea Jackson Jr.! The film was a huge critical and commercial success, garnering tons of awards nominations and wins. Dr. Dre even recorded an album named Compton inspired by watching the film.
