The group NWA emerges from the mean streets of Compton in Los Angeles, California, in the mid-1980s and revolutionizes Hip Hop culture with their music and tales about life in the hood.
O'Shea Jackson Jr. is portraying his father in this film, his screen debut.
When the NWA tour bus returns to Los Angeles, the Bank of America Center building in downtown is visible in the distance with its current logo. The logo seen was not adopted until 2001, while the tour occurred in 1989.
