What a great night! Yesterday, I covered the Straight Outta Compton Atlanta screening & red carpet with Ice Cube, cast members O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell! The event was hosted by executive producer Will Packer and held at the Regal Atlantic Station.
Exciting news from It’s RobinLori! My business is really growing and I wasn’t able to actually STAY for the event. Guess who photographed her first red carpet?!?!! My Twin sister!! Yes folks… I’m putting her to work as we sweep the nation. Who’s better to cover for me than my double? And of course she had the time of her life. 🙂
I will have a FULL review of the movie from FeFe coming soon! But in the meantime… check out the red carpet arrivals captured by my sis and pics I snatched from Instagram:
NOTE: USHER and LUDACRIS attended a “special” VIP screening as well. Still waiting to get the official photos but here’s a pic I grabbed from Instagram.
In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.
