‘Straight Outta Compton’ is dope!

Share Button

I love urban movies. I love rap. I love N.W.A.

In fact, their CD is still in rotation in my car stereo. That’s why “Straight Outta Compton” was my No. 1 most anticipated movie of the year.

So did the movie live up to my expectations? Oh yeah, and then some. The acting was superb and the direction on point. The story may have been glamorized, but it worked. And the music… oh the music!

I have so many good things to say about this movie that I can’t put together a coherent review. So I thought I’d drop a rhyme instead.

So yo, check it out.

(To the tune of N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton”)

 

You are now about to witness the strength of film knowledge.

 

Straight outta Frolic, crazy film fan named Myong Choi

And in this gang called Frolic I’m the bad boy

Saw a movie, it’s gonna be a hit

Now I’m telling y’all what I thought of it

It’s about gangstas with a lot in common

They all come from a town called Compton

They all can rap, some can even write

And all of the songs they make are super tight

They get famous, known all through the country

No longer are these ghetto boys hungry

But then they start facing some issues

Not the kind where you can cry into some tissues

But they give it up smooth

Ain’t no tellin’ when they down for a new groove

Fame ain’t nothin’ but a bitch

It ain’t worth it, even if you rich

That’s their story, and it’s a great one

And the movie ain’t tragic it’s good fun

The actors are dope and do a great job

And Director F. Gary Gray hits it on the nob

Yeah, that’s right, nob, not nose

Cuz he ain’t one who think he gotta pose

That I’m down, with the capital FHC

Boy, you can’t argue me

So when it’s in the theaters, you better watch

Cuz this movie is the top of the notch

As I blog, believe this topic

But when I come back boy, I’m coming straight outta Frolic

Damn, that film was dope!
