A drama about N.W.A., the Los Angeles hip hop group that pioneered gangsta rap in the 1980s and 1990s. The story chronicles the rise and fall of the rap quartet, which was formed by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and MC Ren. The group's songs were so riotous and raw that they were banned from radio, but N.W.A. still sold millions of albums and gained unprecedented popularity - and notoriety. Then came a hostile breakup, battles amongst former bandmates, Eazy-E's death from AIDS, and, ultimately, the group's irrefutable place in history as game-changing music legends.
