Straight Outta Compton is being directed by F. Gary Gray (best known for his films, Friday and Set It Off). Gray was asked early this year about what he was looking for when casting the main roles of N.W.A members Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren.

Gary said:

“Well it’s just a certain thing that a person from the hood has. There are times where a thespian can get there and give it to you, sometimes they can’t, and street credibility it’s just that thing.”

“When you watch American Idol and they have that it factor – there’s a hood factor.”

F Gary Gray has a great eye for talent, and is genius when it comes to directing, so we expect nothing less than greatness from the upcoming biopic, Straight Outta Compton!
