It’s been said but it’s worth repeating: there’s a lot of ways ‘Straight Outta Compton’ could have gone way wrong, but it’s still a supremely watchable movie.
And I know I’m not the only one who was all in when this instant classic scene started.
- he’s now known as ‘Chad’ from Insecure playing DJ Yella
- ‘Weak in the Knees’, an all time classic beat in its own right
- The first verse of ‘Gangsta Gangsta’, which is up there in ITS own right as great ‘this is who we are’ bars
It was like this is in the theatre opening weekend, it’s like this when I hear the song in the car (it’s LA baby), it was like this sitting at my desk:
‘You don’t like how I’m living well…’
(the middle finger goes up…)
