While filming the new N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, some shit went down near the set that was as crazy as the motherfucker named Ice Cube. A drive-by shooting occurred near the Compton courthouse, but none of the cast or film crew was hurt. Authorities have not confirmed whether or not the shooting was gang-related, but the victim of the shooting was luckily not killed. It was truly a missed opportunity to get some authentic footage.
Filming continued, but locations changed. Ice Cube, for one, is incredibly invested in the upcoming film. As Jonah Hill said on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Ice Cube loves his own work (See video below). Ice Cube doesn’t want to cut any corners and wants the whole film to be shot in Compton. I mean, shooting in Inglewood, South Central, or Long Beach just wouldn’t have the same effect. Obviously, Straight Outta Inglewood just doesn’t pack the same punch. Know more.
