Damn, it's good. I mean, really, really good.

I'll admit I'm biased, I was in my teens when N.W.A. blew up and I remember pumping that shit all through high school. Later it was Cube, then Dre and Snoop, yeah, so this movie really sent my down memory lane, which - of course - can color your perception.

It's the classic tale of how money changes everything, and - unlike the music - it's not groundbreaking in any way but it's well put together and the structure is tight. The performances are good for the most part (Paul Giamatti as Jerry Heller is exceptionally good - not surprisingly), Jason Mitchell (as Eazy-E) is probably the one that shows the most range in terms of acting, whereas Corey Hawkins and O'Shea Jackson Jr. (as Dre and Cube respectively) at least get the job done.

At 2h 20+ mins, I actually thought it was too short. But like I said, I'm biased.

I like the music, don't really care too much for the actual creators of it. I still listen to the music when the mood takes me. Indeed, it could pop up any day as I generally use 'My Mix' from YouTube that puts all my musical tastes into one mix. I'll click it now and list the first 5 songs.

Dub Phizix - Scum - Commercial Suicide

Marvin Gaye - Heard it Through the Grapevine

Immortal Technique - Revolutionary

Beethoven - 5th Symphony

Louis Armstrong - What a Wonderful World


If you've never tried it and use YouTube to listen to music, it will throw all of your tastes into a personal mix. Not specific songs, but actual genres. So you could even end up listening to something you've never heard before. No more listening to the radio for me when I write.

Spotify do a similar thing. Every Monday they create a playlist based on what you've been listening to. Great way to find new music.

Judging from your mix there, you seem to have a good, varying taste. I'm a BIG Immortal Technique fan!

On topic: I'll definitely be checking this movie out. Trailer hooked me in and I'm a fan of NWA. Also, been listening to Dre's new album a lot recently. Enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would.

Should have been Straight Outta Scouseland, Stevie.

Bought a Lennon shirt today. The one with him in the NYC T shirt looking immaculate as always. Thought of you when I did it. I must get out more. I'm sure I could add something about buying a ticket to ride, but that'd be rubbish.

Looking forward to this film. No doubt I'll feel suitably far too white and awkward while watching it. And so I should. Hell of a band. Films like these are difficult to pull off. I hope they manage it.

Now I'm off to listen to Come Together then Fuck Tha Police.

Peace.
