Ice Cube and Dr. Dre appear in a message ahead of the look at the NWA biopic.

The first trailer for Straight Outta Compton is here.

The look at the N.W.A. biopic features an intro from executive producers (and subjects of the film) Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, who drive around their old neighborhood.

A promotional shoot for the Universal film was recently subject to tragedy, when Suge Knight showed up to a location several miles away and got into an altercation, resulting in the death of 55-year-old Terry Carter. Another man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, was injured when Knight allegedly ran over him with his car.

The film from director F. Gary Gray stars Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and O'Shea Jackson Jr. It is slated for an Aug. 14 release.
