We have heard that the movie is the top movie at the box office, a lot of people were surprised, but then those who are true hip hop enthuist expected to see it rise beyond what was expected.  NWA came about in a era that was crucial for the development of music especially rap and hip hop.  Dr. Dre,  Ice Cube and Ez E are the pioneers of that culture of music and the movie goes beyond just the fame but the struggle.
