Finally N.W.A will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Very exciting news for all hardcore Eazy-E / NWA fans. Just a few years ago it almost seemed impossible. Im glad the Straight Outta Compton movie gave em that extra push needed. Below is a article by Rolling Stone.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has officially announced next year’s inductees: Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A and Steve Miller will all join the class of 2016. They will be inducted April 8th during a ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, with tickets on sale to the public in February. HBO will broadcast the show in the spring.
Jerry Heller is sueing Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Tomica Wright and others over the movie Straight Outta Compton.
Since its August release, Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A biopic chronicling the rise and fall of the gangsta rap firebrands, has become the highest-grossing music biopic in history. Though the rags-to-riches story detailed the rise of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Eazy-E, it also depicted Jerry Heller, the group’s first manager and longtime nemesis, as the villain, extending a decades-long battle between Heller and the group.
