Tim Westwood Talks To Ice Cube And The Cast Of 'Straight Outta Compton'
Westwood talks to Ice Cube, O'Shea Jackson Jnr and Jason Mitchell about 'Straight Outta Compton.'
This week Tim Westwood was joined by Ice Cube and the cast of N.W.A biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' ahead of the movie's opening weekend in the UK.
Ice Cube, his son O'Shea Jackson Jnr (who plays Ice Cube) and Jason Mitchell, who plays Eazy E in the highly-anticipated film, all dropped by the studio to discuss N.W.A and what fans can expect.
Cube revealed that for him, the main thing he wanted to achieve from the film was to "put Compton on the map."
"Putting Compton on the map was important," he said.
"All of the hip-hop that we all respected came from New York. They were pros and we were amateurs.
"We wanted to put Compton on the map like they were putting Brooklyn and The Bronx and Harlem... We wanted people to be like 'Yo, Compton's in the house."
