There has been much talk of a N.W.A. documentary for some time now. The last we heard, the filming of the biopic was underway. Now Ice Cube speaks on the forthcoming film, and reveals some details about the direction of the project, while noting that every now and then Dr.Dre and himself are trying to put the movie together.
During a recent interview with LA Weekly, Ice Cube spoke on the direction of upcoming “real” N.W.A. film.
Ice Cube says he and Dr. Dre and overseeing the production of the N.W.A. documentary, and this is the real movie about the group:
Every now and then. We’re [Dr. Dre and himself] trying to put this NWA movie together. This is the real one. That other one that you heard about was bullshit. This is the official one. 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 NWA.
Cube speaks on the direction of the film:
To me I think its interesting to anybody who loves that era and I don’t know any other movie where you can mix gangster rap, the FBI, LA riots, HIV, and fucking uh, feuding with each other. This movie has everything from Darryl Gates and the battering ram.
As Cube mentioned, the real documentary has not been started yet, and Dre and himself are trying to put the “real one” together, so we are unsure what Dr. Dre was tweeting about when he sent out photos from the set of the N.W.A. movie last year.
