Decades after arriving on Southern Californian soil and profiling N.W.A — as well as putting a spotlight on the street-life of Los Angeles and Compton — Fab Five Freddy is once again linking up with the legendary act to present a behind-the-scenes look at the forthcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. Per HYPEBEAST:

Hip-Hop pioneer Fab Five Freddy has gone behind the scenes of forthcoming N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton to catch up with old friends Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella about the film that their lives and careers inspired. 25 years after interviewing the groundbreaking rap group in their native Compton, Freddy reflects on the path that has led them to their now iconic status. Director F. Gary Gray adds his own personal input about the significance of the film and we get an idea of the ongoing legacy of the World’s Most Dangerous Group and their own particular chapter of modern American history. Check out the short video above and keep an eye out for Straight Outta Compton when it hits screens on August 14.

Earlier in the week, we also learned some more details about the film’s soundtrack.
