Talk of an N.W.A. movie has been circulating for the past few years, with Ice Cube at the helm, but what's the status?
In a recent interview with the L.A. Weekly, the hip-hop legend talked about the proposed film, and while there's still no timeframe of its release, he says it will go "deeper than any other article or documentary on the group."
Apparently, there's other N.W.A. film projects in the works, including one produced by Eazy-E's daughter. However, Cube says his is the "real one."
"That other [N.W.A.-related film] that you heard about was bullsh**. This is the official one," said Cube. "We're taking it to the nooks and crannies, I think deeper than any other article or documentary on the group. These are the intimate conversations that helped forge N.W.A. To me, I think it's interesting to anybody who loves that era and I don't know any other movie where you can mix Gangster Rap, the FBI, L.A. riots, HIV, and f***ing feuding with each other. This movie has everything from Darryl Gates and the battering ram."
Cube is currently prepping his 10th solo LP, Everythang's Corrupt. Read his the full piece at LAWeekly.com.
