The long-awaited “Straight Outta Compton” movie based on the career of Hip Hop group, N.W.A., will make its premiere this Friday. It was only fitting for Billboard to recruit Compton-native, Kendrick Lamar, to interview the group.
Dr. Dre on keeping their sanity after so many years in the game:
The way I keep my sanity is because the love I have for the music and the passion that I have for this Hip Hop thing. I can’t let anything get in the way of that.
Dre reversed roles and asked Kendrick a question as well: “Have you seen the movie?”
Not yet. Didn’t want to go to a preview and see it in a privileged setting. Would rather wait for it to come to the neighborhood and see it with everyone else. That way it’ll mean the most to me.
