Straight Outta Compton w-banner and text

This week we revisit F. Gary Gray’s 2015 film Straight Outta Compton. The film recounts the rise of the group N.W.A. whose music revolutionized Hip Hop culture and inspired a generation in the process. For our short film spotlight, we discuss Melville by James M. Johnston and Missy Elliott’s Work It by Dave Meyers.
