The 'Straight Outta Compton' Cast Shows Us How To Transform Into N.W.A.

N.W.A.'s biopic hits theaters on Friday.

N.W.A. were larger than life, so retelling their story on the big screen is no easy feat. Luckily for "Straight Outta Compton" director F. Gary Gray, he had a talented team of actors ready to take on the roles of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella.

In the lead-up to Friday's release of "Straight Outta Compton," actors O'Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube), Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre) and Jason Mitchell (Eazy-E) came to MTV News to tell us what it was like to play the World's Most Dangerous Group.
