Before 2Pac and Snoop Dogg, there was N.W.A. When Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E founded N.W.A., they became the much-needed voice of the streets during a time when racial tension was at a boiling point in the U.S.

Today, Universal Pictures released a new trailer and character posters for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic: Straight Outta Compton.

While the first trailer of the film showcased some N.W.A.’s meteoric rise to fame, the second trailer showcases the reality of their situations. “Speak a little truth and people lose their minds,” as Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson Jr.) said in the trailer.

Straight Outta Compton stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, Aldis Hodge as MC Ren, Neil Brown Jr. as DJ Yella and Paul Giamatti as Jerry Heller. Straight Outta Compton is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday).

Straight Outta Compton takes over the streets on August 14th.
