Neither Curtis Young or Eric Wright Jr. a.k.a. the sons of Dr. Dre and Eazy-E respectively, made the final cut for the Straight Outta Compton cast. That additional degree of separation isn’t stopping their flourish from celebrating the big weekend the N.W.A biopic experienced in theaters.
TMZ paid a visit to the two Hip-Hop princes in what just so happens to be the garage-turned-studio where their legendary dads got their musical start.
In the film, there is a pivotal moment that shows Dr. Dre recording Eazy-E for what would eventually become “Boyz-n-the-Hood” and it took place right in the very spot the boys were standing in.
“Dre had a board [over here],” Lil Eazy-E said, pointing to a nearby corner. He also suggested that various members of the group would crash at the spot if they were having troubles at home. The late pioneering gangsta rapper’s other son, Derrek “E3” Wright can also be seen in the background playing video games.
Universal Pictures managed to shell out $56 million worth of movie tickets in the opening weekend but not everybody was happy with the way the group (namely Eazy-E) was showcased in the film. His daughter, E.B. Wright, recently tweeted out her frustrations that omitted several conquering moments in her father’s life.
Regardless, Young and Wright aren’t tripping and you shouldn’t either. Check out the mini-N.W.A history lesson below.
